Delain Signs Worldwide Deal With Napalm Records

Napalm Records announced that it has inked Dutch symphonic metal act Delain to a worldwide contract. The band recently issued its latest LP "We Are the Others" (see review over here) through Roadrunner in Europe and Sensory Records in North America.

The announcement reads: "Last week, Delain's Charlotte & Martijn hopped on a plane to Austria, in order to pay the Napalm Records headquarters a visit and to sign a worldwide contract. As you can see on the picture, they did it voluntarily without being coerced into anything. The new partnership was celebrated by hitting the snowy and icy slopes surrounding Eisenerz, where Austrian and Dutch racers met in a friendly competition. As behind the microphone, Charlotte gave 110% and broke her arm while racing to a well-deserved victory. Don’t worry though, she’s fine and Delain is the latest addition to the ever-growing Napalm Records family! Welcome!"

The band commented: "We are so much looking forward to the cooperation with Napalm Records. This is the perfect label for us, and this cooperation makes it possible for us to build on, and reach out to our fans."

Thomas Caser, Head Of Napalm A&R stated: "Having been a fan and follower of the band since its beginning, I personally am extremely proud that Delain are now part of our roster. The band shares our visions and together we will bring Delain to the top!" More...

Following its release in Europe via Roadrunner Records, and in the Netherlands via CNR Entertainment, "We Are The Others" -- the third album from Dutch symphonic metal troupe Delain -- is out now in North America via Sensory Records.

"We Are The Others" is now streaming in its entirety via Blistering.com. You can play the songs here or in the player available below. The following press release was also issued about the album:

"As always fronted by the soaring, vibrant vocals of Charlotte Wessels and drenched in the glorious keyboard passages of band founder ex-Within Temptation keyboardist, Martijn Westerholt, We Are The Others boasts twelve of the most epic Delain hymns to date, with the North American version containing four additional exclusive live bonus tracks.

"We Are The Others is an album littered with concepts in every aspect, from lyrically bridging fantasy with reality and actual events in history, to the steampunk-influenced cover art created by noted pop surrealist Glenn Arthur. DELAIN enlisted a massive production team for the recording, including Jacob Hellner (Rammstein, Apocalyptica), Fredrik Thomander and Anders Wikstrom (Scorpions, Backyard Babies), bringing every element of the album to life. The band met Fear Factory vocalist Burton C. Bell at Wacken Open Air, which resulted in a guest appearance on the album." More...

Delain Recruits After Forever Guitarist For Tour

Dutch symphonic metal band Delain announced that guitarist Timo Somers will sit out the band's upcoming European tour due to other obligations. The band recruited former After Forever guitarist Bas Maas as a guest for the tour.

The band posted the following update about the situation:

Recently there have been some developments at the guitar department of Delain. Our band demands a huge amount of time and energy from our band members. Since our guitar player Timo has a lot of musical activities besides Delain, we want to give him the time and space to pursue this as well. Until now that was not possible, but recently we received a huge reinforcement in the band. Guitarist Bas Maas is joining in our group to relief Timo for some shows this year. Some of you may know Bas from Doro or his previous band After Forever. We want to give Bas a warm welcome in Delain. He will join us at our European tour, and a couple shows this spring. See you all on the road!

The band begins the tour for the forthcoming new LP "We Are the Others" on April 26, 2012 in Hamburg, Germany with Trillium and Halcyon Way. For more information head over to this location. More...

Delain Unveils Album Artwork And Track Listing

Dutch symphonic metal band Delain has unveiled the album artwork and track listing for the forthcoming LP "We Are The Others," the band's third studio release. No release date has been announced.

The band had the following comments in the most recent update on the release: "We are very proud to reveal the cover artwork and track listing of our third studio album 'We Are The Others.' As you might expect from us this album again offers some interesting collaborations, both in musical and visual terms. This record features none less then Fear Factory shouter Burton C Bell as a guest singer, and visual artist Glenn Arthur provided the cover artwork.

"Next to the title track 'We Are The Others,' the track listing below also reveals the song 'Where Is The Blood' featuring Burton C Bell (FEAR FACTORY). We met Burton at the Wacken Open Air festival a year ago and stayed in touch afterwards. When we were working on "Where is The Blood" we didn't hesitate to contact him for cooperation. He's done such an amazing job on the song turning the song into a most violent duet; his exceptional, raw voice fits perfectly to this song!

"The cover artwork was created by Glenn Arthur, a California based visual artist whose work is inspired by art nouveau design and steampunk imagery. Charlotte is a big admirer of Glenn’s work and she dedicated multiple blogs to his art. For the artwork of We Are The Others, we gave Glenn the lyrics to the song as inspiration. We’re incredibly happy with how the cover turned out. For more info on Glenn Arthur, check out his Facebook.

"We are very proud to have Burton and Glenn aboard on our album!

"The release date of We Are The Others is yet to be announced, keep checking this website for more news. The first show where we will play our brand new material live will be announced this Monday!" More...

Delain Announces First Single For New LP

Dutch symphonic metal band Delain announced that the first single from the forthcoming LP will the the title track "We Are The Others." No release date for the single was announced, however, the full album is due for a Spring 2012 release through Roadrunner Records. The album will follow the band's successful sophomore release "April Rain" in 2009.

Singer Charlotte Wessels noted that the inspiration for the title track is based on the 2007 hate crime against British girl Sophie Lancaster, who was beaten along with her boyfriend by a gang of youths because of their goth looks. Lancaster later died from those injuries.

"Sophie’s story hit close to home for us, being part of a subculture ourselves but it’s in no way an individual case; people are discriminated against -all the time- to the point of violence - based on their cultural or ethnic background everywhere. We Are The Others is our own ‘outsiders anthem’ for everybody who, deliberately or not, diverts from the norm. Whether it’s by looking different, acting different, or choosing a different path in life then is expected from you."

More information on the single and full album is expected soon.
