Speaking previously about the record, vocalist Cristina Scabbia said: “Black Anima is all of us. It’s you and it’s me, it’s everything we hide and fiercely expose to a world that’s halfway asleep.
“It is the fogged mirror we are peering into searching for the truth. It’s sacrifice and pain, it’s justice and fear, it’s fury and revenge, it’s past and future. Human beings in the magnificence of a disturbing ambiguity.
"The black core that balances it all – as without darkness light would never exist.
“We proudly present to you our new work and can’t wait to welcome you in our embrace. We are the Anima.”
Lacuna Coil have several performances lined up this summer and will embark on a UK and European tour with Eluveitie throughout November and December.
Further album details will be revealed in due course.
