Italian purveyors of gothic rock, Lacuna Coil, have announced the details to Delirium, the successor to 2014's Broken Crown Halo. Out May 27 on Century Media, the album contains 11 new cuts as drummer Ryan Folden makes his recording debut with the iconic outfit.

Keeping it in house, bassist Marco 'Maki' Coti-Zelati headed up production duties on Delirium at BRX Studio in their hometown of Milan between December of 2015 and February of this year. A triple threat, he also designed the album's artwork, which is straight to the point, but says so much. The title is drawn in a scuzzy mirror as fingers wipe away the grime in favor of text, while the onlookers face remains obscured, reflecting the panicked state of mind. The inspiration for the design came from an atmospheric session with Italian photographer Alessandro Olgiati. A teaser clip can be viewed below, which shows eerie imagery of the album's cover and a sample of new music, which sounds like some of the band's heaviest work yet.

Lacuna Coil have undergone a couple of lineup changes in the last two years, but have kept the ship righted utilizing the talents of guitarist Daniel Sahagun following the staggered departures of guitarists Cristiano Migliore and Marco Biazzi as well as the aforementioned stickman, Folden. Sahagun filled the vacant guitar slot for the group's 70,000 Tons of Metal cruise performance, but fans were told he has not been tapped as the next permanent guitarist in Lacuna Coil.

In related news, singer Cristina Scabbia recently laid down guest vocals on German electronic DJ Schiller's song "I Breathe." The song (video below) wades in more ambient waters with a delicate synth melody guiding the track as Scabbia runs through soothing melodies. The singer stated, "This collaboration worked amazingly as he is not only a fantastic musician but also a very creative, artistic and great person overall and the way it just happened was kinda crazy... (I will tell you more soon!)" on her Facebook page, also exclaiming the album, Future is out today.
