Dutch symphonic metal greats Within Temptation have dropped their new single “Wireless,” which you can check out below in official visualizer form. The tune appears on the band’s incoming eighth studio album, due out later this year.
Here’s more info from a presser, “A fiery and heavy song, “Wireless” marks the start of a new era for the band — one in which they keep their DNA alive but build even further upon their acclaimed sound with powerful riffs, contemporary breakdowns, and epic choruses. Lyrically, the band is also unafraid to tackle a number of important political and social issues that exist in the world today, and this single takes aim at those who, hungry for war and turmoil, manipulate and control the media.”
The band’s lead vocalist Sharon den Adel adds, “‘Wireless’ is a song about a soldier who goes to war convinced that he is going for a good cause. He’s indoctrinated by government-controlled media and thinks he’s going to be welcomed back as a savior, only to find out he has been used. This has resulted in people seeing him as a brutal conqueror instead and now, he finds himself on the wrong side. His life and the lives of many are deceived and destroyed.”
