Since the outbreak of war in Ukraine, WITHIN TEMPTATION have shifted their writing focus to social issues, the war, the plight of women fighting for their freedom, and the complex issues surrounding women’s right to choose. Therefore, ‘Bleed Out’ became a fearless proclamation from the band to the world and music. This is not an album that is afraid to shake one or two (speaker) systems. Imbued with an enormous dynamic range that, as usual, explores the full depth of symphonic heaviness, the album is as exuberantly Heavy Metal and anthemic as it is politically profound.
‘Bleed Out’ will be released worldwide on various formats on October 20th via WITHIN TEMPTATION’s label Force Music Recordings in a joint venture with Bertus Distribution and can be ordered already. Further information and the opportunity to pre-order the album can be found at www.within-temptation.com. Already released are ‘The Purge’, ‘Don’t Pray For Me’, ‘Wireless’, ‘Shed My Skin (feat. Annisokay)’, ‘Entertain You’ and ‘The Ritual’. In autumn 2024, WITHIN TEMPTATION will go on a big tour of Germany with the new material.
