With the release of their new album, ‘Dark Adrenaline,’ just around the corner in the new year (Jan. 24), Lacuna Coil have already gone on record to say that the sound is, “a perfect balance between the old stuff and the new,” but now singer Andrea Ferro, who shares vocal duties with Cristina Scabbia, digs a little deeper into it, discussing the title of the album.

In a recent interview with Rock Overdose, Ferro was asked how the band arrived at the title ‘Dark Adrenaline’ and Ferro admitted it wasn’t an easy process. He described their brainstorming, saying, “It seems simple but we wanted to combine the darkness with power that was the outcome of the album.”

The band went back and forth trying to decide on whether they should use ‘Dark’ or ‘Black’ in the title but finally agreed that ‘dark’ was “more fitting to the whole feeling.”

When it came to the ‘Adrenaline’ part, that came a little easier to the band. Ferro explained it as, “The ‘adrenaline’ came simply because it expresses the power that comes out of the darkness.”

The album artwork, featuring science lab vials, is intended to depict the darkness that the band created, but there will also be an alternative cover featuring the art of bass player Marco Coti Zelati, who also designed the artwork for the first single, ‘Trip the Darkness,’ featuring a young child, alone and scared in the darkness.

Lacuna Coil already have a busy 2012 lined up with not only the release of ‘Dark Adrenaline, but also their participation in the 2012 Gigantour with Megadeth, Motorhead and Volbeat, kicking off at the end of January.

Meanwhile, 'Trip the Darkness' is up for Rock Song of the Year in the first-ever Loudwire Music Awards.
