Within Temptation Signs To Roadrunner Records

Roadrunner Records is proud to announce the signing of critically acclaimed Dutch goth-metallers Within Temptation for the UK, Australia, and Japan.

Fronted by the nightingale-throated Sharon den Adel, the band is completed by Robert Westerholt (guitar), Jeroen Van Veen (bass), Stephen van Haestregt (drums), Martijn Spierenburg (keyboards), and Ruud Jolie (guitar).

“We are very happy that our new album is being released by Roadrunner in the U.K., Australia, and Japan,” say Sharon and Robert. “A lot of our fans from these countries send us messages requesting a local album release. We wanted to work with a label that understands our music and now we are definitely at the right place.”

Formed in 1996, Within Temptation has released three albums including the platinum album 'Mother Earth' - selling over 800,000 albums in their career to date. Latest album 'The Silent Force', originally released in November 2004, crashed into the Netherlands official chart at #1, and was certified gold a mere three weeks later. Further Top 5 positions followed in Germany (gold), Belgium (also gold), and Finland, with Austria, Sweden, Switzerland, Spain, France, and Norway all also placing the album high in the Top 30. A UK release is set for August 29th in brand new CD and CD/DVD formats including bonus tracks and live footage.

In early 2005, with over 400,000 copies of 'The Silent Force' sold in Europe, the band was awarded the Conamus Music Export prize as well as the Edison Award for Best National Band (the Dutch equivalent of the US Grammys & the UK Brits). A TMF Award (MTV Benelux's domestic award ceremony) followed.

Within Temptation are currently on the European festival circuit, appearing at Pinkpop, Werchter, Rock Am Ring, Rock Im Park, Sweden Rock, Ruisrock, Aerodome, Wacken, and Gurten. Support slots with Iron Maiden in Paris and Zurich have also been announced. In addition, a special one-off show in Amsterdam on July 22 is confirmed, where the band will perform on an island in the middle of a river for 10,000 fans! In the UK, Within Temptation will headline the annual Bloodstock Festival on September 3. Stay tuned for more dates

COB, Hammerfall To Headline Bloodstock 2005 Fests

BLOODSTOCK 2005 will comprise 2 separate festivals. The brand new outdoor show BLOODSTOCK OPEN AIR ( B-O-A ) will take place on June 24th-25th 2005 at Catton Hall, in the Midlands, with the annual BLOODSTOCK05 – UK Metalfest taking place indoors at the Assembly Rooms in Derby on 2nd-3rd September 2005.

With the indoor festival now having reached capacity within the current location, the next logical step was to find an additional location, and the decision to go outdoors was an easy choice to make as the UK does not have an outdoor Euro-style Metal festival along the lines of Wacken, Bang Your Head and Summer Breeze (DE), Gods of Metal (ITA), Sweden Rock (SWE), Graspop (B), Dynamo (N) and so many more. The current choice of venue, Catton Hall, offers a fantastic location within a rural setting, centrally located within the UK for all areas to reach easily, and yes, camping will be provided. Our initial capacity is for up to 8,000 with further growth at the site to accommodate 20,000 within a few more years. More...

Within Temptation To Do Unique Concert In Paris

This is now officially confirmed. Previewing the release of their new album, Within Temptation will give a unique concert in Europe, on Monday November 8, in Paris, to the Bataclan.

This exceptional concert will be filmed and broadcasted live in several cinemas throughout Europe. For the occasion, the band will present a new and exclusive show, with grandiose production….

You can buy the tickets in all the habitual sell points (Fnac, Virgin, Carrefour, France Billet. ..).

Because of the special aspect of this concert, a number of tickets will be allocated to the French and international media and for sure, a lot of fans from all over Europe will come too. Don’t forget that the capacity of the Bataclan will be reduced because of the installations of the movie cameras and equipment for the retransmission. You must understand that this concert will be quickly sold out.

For their upcoming tour, the band will play live in France (more than 10 shows for the country are already programmed…) and Europe only in February and March 2005…

Entitled "Silent Force," the new album of Within Temptation will be out on Tuesday 16 November, in three different formats: a limited edition luxury digibook with a DVD in bonus, a “normal” version, and a version without booklet at a really cool price.
