RESIST was released on February 1st 2019 and debuted in several Top 10 charts worldwide becoming the band’s first album to ever reach a #1 position in the official German charts. And now, just a year later, brand new material is ready to be shared – a testament to the renewed creativity and vigour at the heart of the band.
“Both in the music industry and the world around us, we see so many things changing and that inspires us creatively,” explains frontwoman Sharon den Adel. “We have always been a band that embraces change and this song shows that more than ever, both musically and lyric-wise. For many of our fans, the song will be a shocker”,
With the release of the new single, Within Temptation will embark on a new adventure by going independent and releasing the new track themselves. In this fast-developing digital age where it is possible to write, record and release new tracks almost immediately, the band will be able to indulge themselves in their creative process. With no production, record label schedules or time restraints they can release their new music within a heartbeat, providing their fans with fresh and newly inspired music more frequently.
Over the past few years, Within Temptation’s flourishing career has been at its peak both creatively and in the live arena. Having sold over 150,000 tickets in eight countries for their Worlds Collide co-headline tour with US rock band Evanescence, sadly the current global situation has meant the tour has been postponed.
‘Entertain You’ will be released on Friday May 8, 2020 - one week after the last show of the Worlds Collide Tour was supposed to happen. Nevertheless, the dates have now been re-scheduled and the Worlds Collide tour will go ahead in September taking in major venues across Europe including the iconic O2 in London.
When asked what fans can expect from this tour, Sharon comments: “A spectacular event, like nothing they have ever seen before. We are known for our live shows with innovative, creative, over-the-top set designs and special effects, but this tour will go beyond everything we have ever done before!”
