Delain Comments On Theme Of New Album "The Human Contradiction"

Delain's Charlotte Wessels has checked in with the following statement about the band's new album:

“The title 'The Human Contradiction' is taken from one of my favorite books; Octavia E. Butlers trilogy Lilith’s Brood. A post-apocalypse story, in which the fact that humanity did not last is explained by our two most contradictory qualities; the fact that we are as a species both intelligent and hierarchic.

"This human contradiction causes an ‘us versus the others’ mentality, which in the book - as well as one could argue, in reality - proves to be a most self-destructive attitude. In a way, 'The Human Contradiction' presents a broadening and deepening of the lyrical concept of We Are The Others: ‘otherness’ and how people relate to this, has had my interest for years. Whether it is otherness within our species, so towards people who are perceived as ‘different’ by other people (which was 'We Are The Others' main focus) or in our attitudes towards non-human ‘others’, which is the lyrical addition made by our new record.”

"The Human Contradiction" will be released in North America on April 8th via Napalm Records and the album's track listing is as follows:

1. Here Come the Vultures
2. Your Body is a Battleground
3. Stardust
4. My Masquerade
5. Tell Me, Mechanist
6. Sing to Me
7. Army of Dolls
8. Lullaby
9. The Tragedy of the Commons
