Within Temptation have announced their new album Bleed Out is set for release on 20th October 2023.
Speaking about the album inspiration, vocalist Sharon den Adel comments, “The war in Ukraine has influenced us a lot. As artists we are inspired by the world, and we have this platform. We are storytellers, and I think as human beings, these are things we should be talking about.”
The title track discusses the plight of women in Iran who are fighting for their rights following the murder of Mahsa Amini. “I lived in Yemen when I was a kid. My parents lived in several countries in the Middle East, and I’ve visited them a lot when they were there,” comments den Adel. “It’s a different world. Due to my time there, I feel connected to that part of the world. I’ve been so incredibly impressed by the bravery of the young women there who’ve been burning their scarves knowing they were going to be thrown in prison or worse – it’s heartbreaking.”
