Lacuna Coil is proud to announce that the band's new studio release will be entitled "Broken Crown Halo" and is set for release on March 31st (EU, Australia/NZ) and April 1st (North America) via Century Media Records. The album is the band's seventh studio effort, and the highly-anticipated follow-up to "Dark Adrenaline" (see review here).

Lacuna Coil were joined in their native Italy by producer Jay Baumgardner (P.O.D., Sevendust, Evanescence, Papa Roach) and engineer Kyle Hoffmann (P.O.D., Bush, Zebrahead). The album was mastered by Howie Weinberg (Rammstein, Soundgarden, Nirvana, Deftones and Sheryl Crow). More details on the album artwork and track listing are expected soon.

The band commented on the new album:

"What conflict could run so deep that it takes you to the deepest corners of your inner world? Today we are surrounded by a lot of lies, aliases, and people acting like they are wearing an invisible crown - but you better have thick skin if you want to wear this crown! 'Broken Crown Halo' is a cinematic album that could be the soundtrack of our days - it is a dark vision of a near future when survival is second nature, and failure is not something to be avoided, but rather cultivated with lessons learned along the way.

"We set the bar pretty high with 'Dark Adrenaline' and it hasn't been easy bringing our sound to the next level, but we have lived, learned and grown through a year full of personal issues and changes. We learned to be strong and get stronger, and we felt an inner vibe in this band that we haven't felt before. We locked ourselves in an age-old studio in Milan, Italy, where history was strong and the past met with our future, vintage gear and the influence of classic Italian horror movies and bands like Goblin meeting the fresh and rough sounds of the modern world with unique and invigorating results. 'Broken Crown Halo' is Lacuna Coil introducing a new order, and letting nothing stand in our way..."

The band will return to the road to introduce North America to "Broken Crown Halo" as part of the Revolver Hottest Chicks in Hard Rock Tour, which launches February 20 and features Lacuna Coil, Sick Puppies, Eyes Set to Kill and Cilver. The tour launches in Wilmington, NC, and runs through March 20 in Anaheim, CA. See complete itinerary below, and visit this location for additional details and VIP packages.
