Barbara Caserta of Italian web radio Linearock.it conducted an interview with singer Sharon den Adel of Dutch symphonic metallers WITHIN TEMPTATIONearlier today (Monday, October 17) when the band performed in Milan, Italy. You can now watch the chat below.
WITHIN TEMPTATION‘s fifth studio album, “The Unforgiving”, sold around 12,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 50 on The Billboard 200 chart. Released on March 29, the CD was produced by Daniel Gibson and is based on a comic book story written by script writer Steven O’Connell (BloodRayne, Dark 48). The band asked comic artist Romano Molenaar (Witchblade, Darkness, X-Men) to draw the characters and scenery of “The Unforgiving”, which was made available via Sony Music in Continental Europe and Roadrunner Records in the U.S., U.K. and Ireland, Japan and Australia.
WITHIN TEMPTATION guitarist Robert Westerholt recently announced that he will step down from touring duties in order to focus on taking care of the three children he has with Sharon den Adel. His replacement on stage is Stefan Helleblad, who has been working with the band behind the scenes for a few years.
WITHIN TEMPTATION will take part in a signing session at Media Markt Bäckebol in Gothenburg, Sweden on October 26 at 3.30 p.m. (15.30).
