Lacuna Coil To Release A Tabletop Game

Italian gothic metallers Lacuna Coil have announced that they’re going to release a tabletop game titled as ‘Horns Up’, in partnership with Labmusa Games.

‘Horns Up’ takes place at a Lacuna Coil show, where each player must aim to make their way to be the first to reach the stage, with many “friendship-threatening” actions along the way.

The game is set to be available to pre-order at the end of the month, and for shipping to begin from November 2021.

‘Horns Up’ will be available to pre-order online on March 26th 2021 via Kickstarter (here).

Lacuna Coil Announces Livestream; Black Anima: Live From The Apocalypse

Italian metallers Lacuna Coil have announced the details of a livestream where they will perform their latest record, ‘Black Anima’ in full.

Their upcoming Live From The Apocalypse show is set to take place on September 11th from the Alcatraz Club in Milan, with the band saying how excited they are to play given how long they’ve been locked down amid the Covid-19 pandemic.

“When the world changed, we were in the early stages of touring our new album, Black Anima,” they say. “Months have gone by and the desire to get back up onstage and play our music for you has just grown bigger and bigger. While the pandemic won’t allow us to travel to your hometowns, it can’t stop us from coming directly into your homes. Please welcome Black Anima, Live From The Apocalypse…”

Fans will “feel great and angry and happy and awkward” when they listen to it, she said. “At the end they will feel a sense of relief and release – that’s what I get from this record.”
