Delain Premiere “Ghost House Heart” Music Video

Delain have premiered a new video for their new song “Ghost House Heart.” This track is from the band’s new album “Apocalypse & Chill,” which will be released on February 7.

Vocalist Charlotte Wessels commented:

“Going back to such an intimate song after the bombast of ‘Masters Of Destiny’ and ‘Burning Bridges’ feels a bit like switching gears, but I enjoy every minute of it. Singing this song is almost meditative, and I love the way voice, piano and violin weave together in the track. I hope our fans will love this change of pace as well, and I can’t wait to perform this song live on stage during our upcoming U.K. tour and our Valentine’s Day release show in Utrecht.”

Keyboardist Martijn Westerholt added:

“This song was created while spontaneously playing and singing together with Charlotte. It seemed to create itself. It’s also a nice change of pace in relation to the other songs we have written for the new album. As a pianist, of course it is fun to play a piano song for a change. We worked with violinist Shir-Ran Yinon and I think the way the violin intertwines with the vocal lines is mesmerizing. The video was a lot fun to make and it was a beautiful set with a lot of history.”

With its energy and bombast, the track marries some of our favorite musical elements, and introduces a real-life choir as a new color on our palate.

Delain Drummer Joey De Boer To Miss Upcoming Shows

Delain drummer Joey De Boer will be missing the initial dates of the band’s tour with Amorphis and Anneke Van Giersbergen due to visa issues. During his absence, Amorphis drummer Jan Rechberger will be filling in.

The band commented:

“Dear Delainers,

Due to circumstances unforeseen and beyond our control, there has been a delay in our drummer Joey’s US visa.

We have been assured that the visa will be approved, but it may take as much as a couple of weeks to get processed.

Therefore we have to inform you that sadly, Joey will not make it to the US in time to perform at least the first run of the tour with us.

Although we are deeply disappointed by the situation, we fortunately have a solution to rock out with all of you US Delainers as planned.

We are very grateful that Amorphis’ drummer Jan Rechberger has offered to perform double duty this tour and take his place behind the drums with Delain as well. Many thanks to him!

Please keep your fingers crossed for Joey and we look forward to starting our US tour in a few days!

See you soon!”
