Lacuna Coil have announced today that, hot on the heals of their seventh studio album, ‘Broken Crown Halo’ they are to release a sister album entitled ‘Halo Crown Broken’. According to the band the album is inspired by The Beatles ‘White Album’ and will include a re-interpretation of the music released on ‘Broken Crown Halo’, but with instruments that Lacuna Coil haven’t previously used.
Andrea Ferro says “In Broken Crown Halo, we are fighting for a kingdom and a crown that is not what it seems to be, one that in reality represents the moment of confusion we’re living in, and the very fragile situation we’re facing every day. In this album we provide a white utopia where music provides order and stability to the chaos”. He adds, “We are exploring musical boundaries with the use of exotic instruments like ukuleles, sitars and mandolins. The idea is that you listen to ‘Halo Crown Broken’ at the same time as ‘Broken Crown Halo’ to create a rich soundscape.”
Cristina Scabbia also adds “We’ve always wanted to explore more vocal techniques and I’m really pleased with the yodelling that Andrea and I perform in this album. It rocks!”
‘Halo Crown Broken’ is on limited release from today! More information about the album can be found here.
