Nuclear Blast Records Signs Within Temptation For North America

Arguably the pioneers of the symphonic female fronted metal scene, Dutch act Within Temptation has signed on with Nuclear Blast Records for North America. The band is currently working on the follow up to the 2011 release "The Unforgiving," which is scheduled for an late 2013 drop. A teaser for the new single can be heard over at this location.

"There are very few bands out there today who continually deliver on such a high and consistent level as Within Temptation,” states Nuclear Blast Entertainment President Monte Conner. "That is why they have such an incredibly loyal worldwide fan base. I am thrilled they chose NBE as their U.S. partner. Their fans are in for a real treat come later this year!"

Equally excited is Within Temptation’s vocalist Sharon den Adel and guitarist Robert Westerholt, who comment: "We were looking for a partnership with a passionate and artist-minded company. Monte Conner, Markus Staiger [label owner], and the people at Nuclear Blast exactly fit this profile."

More information on the new album is expected soon.
