LACUNA COIL singer Andrea Ferro has told PureGrainAudio that the band is still having a good time making albums and touring the world, even after being together for two and a half decades. “It’s still fun,” he said (hear audio below). “Otherwise, we wouldn’t do another record, with all the effort it takes to write, record and promote. So if we do that, it’s because we really want to be out here and playing for the fans and meeting the people all over the world. Plus, every time we discover something new, or you play some new places that you haven’t before. So we’re looking forward to territories we haven’t been — in Asia, or New Zealand, for example, we’ve never been. Maybe Africa, because we’ve never played Africa; it’s the only continent where we’ve never played. So maybe South Africa could be a gig for this time. So it’s always interesting and nice to meet friends all over the world that you met for many years, and you just see them during the album cycle. So it’s a cool experience that we love to do again.”

LACUNA COIL‘s new album, “Black Anima”, will be released on October 11 through Century Media Records. Once more, LACUNA COIL teamed up with director Roberto Cinardi (a.k.a. SaKu) to shoot the video for “Layers Of Time”. SaKu has worked with the band for many videos, such as the award-winning “Spellbound” (2009), “I Won’t Tell You” (2010), “End Of Time” (2012) and the short film with members of the band, “Dark Passengers” (2012).

Co-vocalist Cristina Scabbia told HardDrive Radio about “Black Anima”: “It might sound really cliché if we say that it’s gonna be heavier and darker, but this is actually the truth. Because I don’t think that LACUNA COIL has ever been so heavy. And it will be surprising a lot of people, because we experimented a lot of things differently — vocally and musically.

“It will be revolving around a book and some other stuff that we can’t talk about,” she added. “And ‘Black Anima’ is basically translated as ‘black soul,’ ’cause ‘anima’ is an Italian word that we decided to use as the title.”

LACUNA COIL and ALL THAT REMAINS will join forces for the “Disease Of The Anima” North American co-headlining tour. The trek includes special guests BAD OMENS, TOOTHGRINDER (September 15 – October 10), EXIMIOUS (October 11 – October 19) and UNCURED.
