Italian metal maestros Lacuna Coil have officially announced their seventh studio effort "Broken Crown Halo," confirming an April 1 North American release (March 31 internationally).

The band was also confirmed for Revolver's "Hottest Chicks in Hard Rock" tour, scheduled to kick off on February 20 along with Sick Puppies, Eyes Set to Kill and Cilver. The trek will run through March 20, check out the full itinerary and ticket info here.

"What conflict could run so deep that it takes you to the deepest corners of your inner world?" the official press release reads. "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."

The latest Lacuna Coil studio effort, "Dark Adrenaline," saw its release in January 2012 via Century Media Records.

    Wow, this news just made my day. I was wondering when their next album was going to come out. Can't wait!
    I know they are not the same musically but my "Hottest Chicks of Hard Rock" would include 1.) Lacuna Coil 2.) In This Moment 3.) Arch Enemy
    Fuck Lacuna Coil, they get a lot of press exposure because Cristina Scabbia is a talented singer but also a beautiful woman.. Musically they're meh
    I heard so much hype about these guys and Cristina is so hot that I decided to listen to Dark Adrenaline. I don't know if it's just me but I found it to be vocally decent but with generic power chord down-tuned "hard rock" in the background.
    After Comalies, it's been downhill. Even back then they weren't ground breaking but they were solid.
    after how bad Dark Adrenaline was, I have mixed feelings about this.
    After how amazing Dark Adrenaline was, I think my excitement has just reached new levels for this album to come out!
