Lacuna Coil has just announced the release of their new album Delirium for May 27 via Century Media.
Long time heavy rocking Italians, Lacuna Coil, have just announced the release of their eighth studio album titled Delirium. This will be the follow up to 2014’s Broken Crown Halo that was a very successful piece of work for the band. The album was recorded at the BRX Studio in Milan sometime between Decemer 2015 and February 2016, as reported by Blabbermouth. There were many names that contributed to this albums that is fruition, one being Marco “Maki” Coti-Zelati who is the bass player for the band. Other than playing the bass, Maki was also the album’s producer and main songwriter. Marco Barcusso was the engineer for the album but was also a contributing mind to Maki in working on the artwork. The artwork was based off of Alessandro Oligaitai’s photography. The artwork can be seen below.
According to lead singer, Cristina Scabbia, the lyrics on the new record are very important to be discussed. This is what she said:
“Even more! And we’re already discussing stage clothes and stage setup for the tour. I’ve always liked the theatrical side of the show. I’ve never agreed with the bands that don’t even consider their look onstage, just because only music counts. Of course music counts — but if you go to a show, you want to see a band acting like they’re doing a show. So I think costumes are important. It’s like going to the theater and seeing the actors without their proper clothes — it’s not the same! And honestly, it’s more fun for the band — putting on the costumes before you go onstage, it’s sort of a ritual, and it puts you into the show even more. It’s still you, but it’s a different side of yourself.”
This is going to be the first album that Lacuna Coil has come out with without their original drummer. Daniel is now their main drummer who played this year’s 7000 Tons of Metal Cruise.
Biazzi, the original drummer, had this to say about his departure from the band, “I felt I couldn’t add more in this project any longer so I decided to leave my second family, Lacuna Coil, to take a different path for a new challenge in my life.”
