Lacuna Coil Release New Amazon Original Track “Bad Things”

Lacuna Coil have released a new song titled “Bad Things” exclusively through Amazon Music. Co-vocalist Andrea Ferro commented:

“The spookiest time of the year is approaching, the magic night when pumpkins glow by moonlight! Halloween is known as the end of summer and the start of winter, a season associated with darkness and frigid weather. We have decided to celebrate the fact that we will be the first Italian artists to create an Amazon Original track with an appropriately themed song called ‘Bad Things’. The song has a unique horror vibe perfect for the last day of October, when the boundary between the living and the dead becomes blurred.”

Lacuna Coil Featured On Cover Of Upcoming Batman Comic

Lacuna Coil are featured on the cover of an upcoming Batman comic. The issue will be available on October 21 in Italy. The band commented [translated from Italian]:

“We are proud to have been designed by Giovanni Timpano-Comic Book Artist for the cover of #batman68! Our full interview and many extra content will be available soon. Meanwhile enjoy this exclusive image of Batman’s multiverse metal. From 21 October in all newsstands and comic. Don’t miss it! 🤘🏻”

Lacuna Coil Premiere New Song “Save Me”

Lacuna Coil have premiered a new song titled “Save Me” via Billboard. This track is from the band’s new album “Black Anima,” which will be released on October 11. Cristina Scabbia commented:

“[It’s] basically screaming for help — but like, a silent scream, because a lot of people are just afraid to talk about their problems. They like better to keep things to themselves and see if they can find a solution without any help, which can be foolish.”

Lacuna Coil Premiere “Reckless” Music Video

Lacuna Coil have premiered a new video for their new song “Reckless.” This track is from the band’s new album “Black Anima,” which will be released on October 11.

Cristina Scabbia commented:

“‘Reckless‘ is the second track taken from our new album ‘Black Anima‘. We wanted the concept of the video for this song to be somehow related ‘Layers Of Time‘. That’s why we filmed both of them in the same location picked by Roberto Saku Cinardi. We had the band’s performance at the core of the ‘Layers Of Time‘ video, while in ‘Reckless‘ the ideas of freedom and being true to yourself come to life through disturbing horror images to cause a reaction in the audience and actually represent the obscure atmosphere of our new record.

In ‘Reckless‘, Lacuna Coil became part and parcel of the nightmare and fears experienced by the little redheaded girl. As usual, working with Saku in such a stunning location and with great actors that completely committed to the roles, has been absolutely inspiring. It was definitely worth it and I hope you will like this video as much as I do!”
