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.
