After returning from a triumphant run throughout South America and right before embarking on some shows with labelmates Arch Enemy and The Haunted, Lacuna Coil has released a new video for one of its crowd favorites, “Blood, Tears, Dust.” The video was directed and edited by Cosimo Alemà, and produced by the production company Borotalco.

“Right now I can’t tell you everything about ‘Blood, Tears, Dust,’ as this video is part of something bigger,” said vocalist Cristina Scabbia. “This is the core of who we are as a band: the sweat, the dirt, the raw energy. It’s our insanity and all of us feeling comfortable with it. I love how by Cosimo Alemà filmed this. The photography, the colors and the hints in the story are perfectly placed, and it is the first time we are really ‘acting.’ This video is only a part of a much bigger plan. .. Stay tuned. Hope you enjoy this video as much as I do!” (more…)

That brings us to Broken Crown Halo, Lacuna Coil’s seventh full-length studio album. (more…)
