WITHIN TEMPTATION Embark On 2019 North American, New Album “Resist” Out Now!

WITHIN TEMPTATION Embark On 2019 North American, New Album “Resist” Out Now!

WITHIN TEMPTATION, the leaders of dark, symphonic metal anthems boasting a career which spans two decades, are about to begin their 2019 North American tour. The trek kicks off tomorrow (February 28th) in Baltimore, MD and concludes on March 19th in Los Angeles, CA. In Flames and Smash Into Pieces will provide support on all of the upcoming dates.
You can check out the band’s music video for “Raise Your Banner,” featuring In Flames singer Anders Friden, and listen to the first single “The Reckoning,” featuring Jacoby Shaddix of Papa Roach.
WITHIN TEMPATION’s newest LP, Resist, marks a departure from the band’s past. The record is armed with 10 anthemic tracks, driven by grand melodies and dark hooks. It brings a futuristic take on metal to the table — both instrumentally and thematically. “Resist is a true milestone for us. If it wasn’t for Resist, Within Temptation wouldn’t be here anymore,” the band states.
“With this record, we’ve taken inspiration from modern music and gave it a face — a very dark one,” said singer Sharon den Adel. “Sometimes, it feels that today’s pop music lacks a rebellious edge. Our main goal was to collect pieces from sounds we did like and roughen it up as much as we could, resulting in a surprisingly new musical world that is heavier, dirtier and more futuristic than we’ve ever created before. Resist is our take on metal in a new way: to give modern music its rebellious edge.”
