Within Temptation Announce 2018 European/UK Tour

Within Temptation have announced a 2018 European/UK tour. Sharon Den Adel commented:

“When our last tour finished, I was having a rough time. I realized I needed take some time out with my family to deal with things and to rediscover myself. It took much longer than expected, but two years on, things have changed for the better. I created my solo album (‘My Indigo’) which helped me deal with my issues. And afterwards I suddenly found myself with an aching hunger again for more heavy, epic music. Then the music started to come by itself. I knew for sure that our seventh album was coming after all. So here we are… presenting our seventh tour, and luckily it’s not going to take so long anymore, because we are all more than impatient to get out there again!”

Sharon Den Adel Launches New Project My Indigo, Says Within Temptation Will Release New Music In 2018

Sharon Den Adel has launched a new solo project called My Indigo. You can check out her first single, an eponymous track, below. In other news, she also confirmed that Within Temptation will release new music in 2018.

Here’s Sharon Den Adel’s full message (transcribed by Blabbermouth):

“I know you’ve all been waiting a long time to hear a release date for the new WITHIN TEMPTATION album. How much I’d like to give you one now, I’m not able to yet.

“The thing is, when I came back from the tour last time, I went to the studio, like I always do when I come back from a tour, and I wanted to write music again, new stuff. And normally I have a lot of energy and a lot of inspiration, but this time it wasn’t there; I didn’t have it. And on top of that, I found myself in a bigger crisis than not being able to write songs; something happened in my family. And I felt that I needed more time for everything and to deal with this, so I did. No deadlines, no end date to fight against to finish stuff, no pressure to perform and spending time with my family and my friends.

“So here I am, two years later — [after taking a break] which did help to [make me] more relaxed and [saw me] taking more time for things. And I’m proud to say that we have some really kick-ass songs for WITHIN TEMPTATION now. They’re still in demo phase. We’re going into the studio soon, and there will be a release in 2018.

“In the meantime, I have been working on songs, but it’s not WITHIN TEMPTATION material. These are very personal songs, because it was for myself that I wrote these songs, and especially to get through everything I was dealing with.

“I gave it a name. It’s called MY INDIGO, and the first song from this project is also called ‘My Indigo’. I hope you like it. Go and check it out.

“My apologies about the statements and putting everything on black and scaring some people. I hope you understand a little bit better why I did so, or we did so.

“I hope to see you on the road. And take care. Thanks.”
