Supporting their seventh studio album titled Resist (due out on 2/1 via Spinefarm / Vertigo), Dutch symphonic metal horde Within Temptation have announced a North American tour for next year, featuring support from In Flames and Smash Into Pieces.
Speaking on the impending LP, singer Sharon den Adel writes:
With this record, we’ve taken inspiration from modern music and gave it a face – a very dark one. 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.
The run kicks off in Baltimore, MD at the end of February and storms through March, hitting a total of 15 major markets, including New York City at PlayStation Theater on March 2 [TIX], before concluding in LA.
Check out a full list of tour dates and stream new singles “Raise Your Banner” (ft. In Flames‘ Anders Friden), and “The Reckoning” (ft. Papa Roach‘s Jacoby Shaddix) below.
