Lacuna Coil have released a music video for their latest album title track, Delirium.

The Italian metal outfit previously said they wanted to conjure a “disturbing, cold and weird” atmosphere on the follow-up to 2014’s Broken Crown Halo. They reported said they were inspired by an abandoned mental asylum they once visited when writing the record.

Vocalist Cristina Scabbia says: “We filmed our parts for this video in one evening while we were on the US tour this past May. We used a GoPro against a black backdrop and we wanted something that would be purposely rough, something that could remind some weird lost videos found after years and years.

“The whole video edited together with the parts filmed by the director with an actress turned out as a very strange sort of a trip, where a girl tries to tight up memories and details together to try to find her sanity back, somehow.

“I really like some of the scenes as they reminded me some kind of Korean horror movies vibe and it is totally fitting the Delirium vibe and concept. It also leaves a lot to the imagination, so thanks for checking it out and enjoy.”

Lacuna Coil will perform at two European festivals this summer before resuming a full-time touring schedule in October.
