The members of Dutch act Delain seem to be restless spirits: The latest album "The Human Contradiction" was released in 2014 on Napalm Records and gained high praise from both fans and the press alike. The band followed up the release by touring the world with acts such as Sabaton, Within Temptation, and Nightwish, followed by a European headline tour that saw them conquering stages in sold out venues all over! Yet instead of resting on the success, the band hit the studio again to present a brand new epic endeavor: "Lunar Prelude" – set to be released February 19th via Napalm Records!

"Lunar Prelude" was mastered by Grammy Award winning producer Ted Jensen. It offers two brand new songs in the shape of the beyond catchy "Suckerpunch" and the melancholic "Turn The Lights Out." Today, the band teams up with Metal Underground.com to give you that "Suckerpunch," which can be heard in the player below.

In addition to the new tracks, "Lunar Prelude" includes a brand new version of "Don't Let Go" (originally appeared on 2014's "The Human Contradiction") and four incredible live cuts, as well as an orchestral reprise of "Suckerpunch," all of which proves once again how Delain is blatantly known for catchy hooks, bewitching melodies, symphonic bombast, and of course a good solid dose of metal! Delain has concocted a mesmerizing kaleidoscope of emotions and with the EP title featuring the tell-tale word "Prelude," our hunger is left to grow for a next full-length album…(coming later in 2016!)

On "Suckerpunch" the band commented: "Dear Delainers, our latest album 'The Human Contradiction' has taken us on a great ride, performing hundreds of stages around the globe for all of you. We barely managed to catch our breaths from our most recent tours, yet we've already got some new music that we simply can't wait to share. In preparation of our next full length studio album, we'd like to present to you 'Lunar Prelude,' a collection of several brand new tracks, a new version of a familiar one, and live versions of some our favorite The Human Contradiction tracks. Today, we release the first track off 'Lunar Prelude': an upbeat fight song about facing your demons and taking them on. Don't let them weigh you down! We hope you will enjoy 'Suckerpuch'!"

The track listing for "Lunar Prelude" is:

1. Suckerpunch
2. Turn the Lights Out
3. Don't Let Go
4. Lullaby (Live 2015)
5. Stardust (Live 2015)

Charlotte is such an amazing writer and singer. Martijn is a great arranger and the musicianship of Timo, Merel, Ruben, Otto and Martijn is what makes Delain a force in metal. Love the new song cannot wait til my gold EP arrives and I can crank the volume to 11. Seeing them live for the 5th time in March. Trust me they are great on albums, they are phenomenal live.

Well done my friends.
