Lacuna Coil Join Forces With DC Comics For Batman's 80th Anniversary

Following the release of their 4K-rated new album Black Anima, Lacuna Coil have announced a collaboration with DC Comics for a very special celebration of the 80th anniversary of Batman.

A press release announcing the exciting partnership reads: "Something legendary in the history of music and comics is about to happen! Have you ever wondered what kind of music the obscure knight from Gotham City listens to? Maybe Bruce Wayne has got a secret identity in terms of music as well… and while we imagine him chilling to Mozart during the day, his disguised alter-ego seems to like heavier sounds. The story hasn’t been told yet… Next fall we will get to see Batman in a totally new light. He will land onstage during a Lacuna Coil show.

"These two universes will collide with the Italian release of a very special issue that will be part of the Dark Nights Metal saga by Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo. The volume, which will be released in November by RW Lion, Italian editor of the American company DC Comics, will also be available in a special edition with an unseen illustration by Giuseppe Camuncoli and Riccardo Burchielli, where the band’s power meets the iconic miniseries DC Dark Nights.

"An encounter that happens in such a special moment for both Batman and the band as well. Batman celebrates his 80th anniversary this year, while Lacuna Coil honour their 20 years of career."

Badass. More details are set to be released at the next Lucca Comics & Games event, but for now, here's the cover:
