Within Temptation Premiere “The Purge” Music Video

Within Temptation have premiered a new video for their latest single “The Purge.” You can check that out below:

Frontwoman Sharon Den Adel told Rock Antenne the following about the song:

“‘The Purge’ is about self-reflection; that’s the main theme of the song. It’s about the choices in life everone makes. And sometimes when you make the big choices in life — what kind of life you’re gonna lead; how you’re gonna lead it; what political choices you make — everything you do in life, all these big choices, they have a certain effect also, of course, on people around you. We take one road, and you exclude a lot of other roads. And that also has an impact on other people’s lives sometimes, and you have to deal with that when you get to a certain point in your life.”

“I think probably most people can relate to that, because the whole world has come to a stop, all of a sudden, in this roller coaster we’re all living in. So maybe people will be able to relate to that, because I think a lot of people had time for self-reflection. It’s more a mental cleansing than it’s actually a physical one.”

“It is a high-intensity, heavy song with a touch of old school Within Temptation and we can’t wait for you to hear it! “

Within Temptation Planning To Release More New Music In The Coming Months

Within Temptation recently released a new single titled “Entertain You” and now it looks like the band are planning to release more music in the coming months. Sharon Den Adel was recently interviewed by Anne Erickson of Audio Ink Radio and she had the following to say when asked if the group will be releasing more new material:

“I think so. That’s our plan, anyway. We’ve only recorded two songs, and we have a lot of demos, which are very far, so we can finish them quite quickly. So we’re just gonna start with that — we’re gonna make those demos real songs, and eventually, next year, we’re gonna release also a few songs again. Eventually there will be an album, but the album is not complete yet, so we have to start writing also some extra new songs to make the whole album complete.”

Within Temptation Premiere “Entertain You” Music Video

Within Temptation have premiered a new video for their latest single “Entertain You.” You can check that out below.

Sharon Den Adel told Kerrang! the following:

“The best way to explain the lyrics is to see how we treat a certain groups of people that don’t fit in our society. [There is] a need to emphasise that they do not fit in so we can feel good about ourselves. We’re singling them out, cornering them in all sorts of ways – think of videos of fights in the streets, filming an incident instead of helping someone. They’re not here for our entertainment. It’s a problem that has always been a part of society and it will always be there, unfortunately. So this subject is never old, but it’s something we need to keep talking about so it doesn’t get accepted as normal behaviour.”
