Dutch female-fronted symphonic metallers WITHIN TEMPTATION have posted a 20-second teaser for their forthcoming single and video. Check it out below.
WITHIN TEMPTATION‘s new album is expected in late 2013 via BMG Rights.
The band’s fifth studio CD, “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, 2011 the effort 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 in 2011 announced that he would step down from touring duties in order to focus on taking care of the three children he has with the band’s lead singer, Sharon den Adel. His replacement on stage is Stefan Helleblad, who had been working with the group behind the scenes for a few years.
