Italian alt-metal veterans Lacuna Coil are gearing up for the October 11th release of their ninth full-length, Black Anima, and today, they offered up the LP’s second single, “Reckless,” and the song’s haunting music video. Directed by Roberto Saku Cinardi, the clip continues the story kicked off with the previously released single “Layers of Time.” Saku also helmed Lacuna’s “Spellbound,” “I Won’t Tell You” and “End of Time” videos, as well as the 2012 short film, Dark Passengers, with members of the band.

“We wanted the concept of the video for this song to be somehow related ‘Layers of Time,'” Lacuna Coil singer Cristina Scabbia explained. “That’s why we filmed both of them in the same location picked by Roberto Saku Cinardi. We had the band’s performance at the core of the ‘Layers of Time’ video, while in ‘Reckless’ the ideas of freedom and being true to yourself come to life through disturbing horror images to cause a reaction in the audience and actually represent the obscure atmosphere of our new record. In ‘Reckless,’ Lacuna Coil became part and parcel of the nightmare and fears experienced by the little redheaded girl. As usual, working with Saku in such a stunning location and with great actors that completely committed to the roles, has been absolutely inspiring. It was definitely worth it and I hope you will like this video as much as I do!”
