LACUNA COIL are giving fans a first taste of their upcoming new studio album 'BROKEN CROWN HALO' in the form of the album track "Nothing Stands In Our Way," which the band released today via the Century Media Records Soundcloud page:
"Through everyday battles, against all odds, we stand united and don't look back. We go on against crashing economies, heartbreaks and lifelong obstacles. We learn from our mistakes and nothing can stop us. We fear nothing and we are determined as musicians and as human beings," say LACUNA COIL about "Nothing Stands In Our Way."
'BROKEN CROWN HALO' is set for releases April 1, 2014 in North America (March 31 in Europe, Australia, New Zealand) on Century Media Records. The album is the band's seventh studio effort, and the highly-anticipated follow-up to 'Dark Adrenaline', which was released in January 2012 and saw the band tour with acts including Megadeth, Motorhead, Volbeat, Sevendust and Paradise Lost after debuting at No. 15 on the Billboard Top 200 album chart.
LACUNA COIL 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 sharing a stage with SICK PUPPIES, Century Media Records labelmates EYES SET TO KILL, and CILVER.

"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..."
