Lacuna Coil have announced that they will release the follow-up to their 2016 album, ‘Delerium’, in October, titled ‘Black Anima’. No, they haven’t quickly knocked off a darker version of Thom Yorke’s new album. They’ve both just happened upon the same bit of Jungian psychology at more or less the same time. And that’s fine.

“Black Anima is all of us”, says Lacuna Coil frontwoman Cristina Scabbia. “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”.

“[It’s] human beings in the magnificence of a disturbing ambiguity”, she goes on. “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”.

The album is set for release on 11 Oct. The band will also be touring the UK and Ireland in November. Here are the dates:

12 Nov: Manchester, Ritz
13 Nov: Glasgow, The Garage
14 Nov: Dublin, Academy
15 Nov: Bristol, SWX
16 Nov: London, The Forum
