LACUNA COIL frontwoman Cristina Scabbia says that the band's next album is at the "advanced-demos/checking-lyrics stage."
The Italian heavy rockers' follow-up to 2016's "Delirium" is tentatively due before the end of the year via Century Media.
In a couple of separate Instagram posts, the singer said that she is "VERY delighted" about LACUNA COIL's new material and revealed that the band is "getting close" to entering the studio to record the disc. She added: "Get fucking ready to listen to a great record."
This past March, Scabbia said that LACUNA COIL's next album would be "heavy and dark." It wasn't the first time she had suggested that LACUNA COIL's next disc could see the band pursuing a more aggressive musical direction, just as was the case with "Delirium". Two years ago, Cristina told Metal Wani: "I believe that it could definitely be even way heavier, because that's what we like to perform on stage. Of course, we like the ballads and the mellow songs, but we like better to perform songs that are heavier. And we love that music."
2018 marked the 20th anniversary of LACUNA COIL's debut. To celebrate the occasion, they played an exceptional show in January 2018 in London at the O2 Forum Kentish Town. The unique, one-time event was filmed and recorded for "The 119 Show - Live In London", which was released last November.
