“Within Temptation to release Mad World”

November 17, 2018 by

Just after midnight, Friday 16 November 2018, worldwide fans of the Dutch rock band Within Temptation was excited to listen to their newest single, “Raise Your Banner“, but found another single next to this new release…

Mad World

Next to “Raise Your Banner“, which is in collaboration with In Flames singer Anders Fridén and was released Friday 16 November 2018, in limited territories a single edit of the “RESIST“-track “Mad World” got released by accident. It took Spotify (or the bands label) only 15 minutes to remove the track from Spotify. However, did we just accidentally learn the third single from their upcoming album “RESIST”?

Many thanks to César Godino for the update and needed information.

RESIST

It took a long time to make a new album. RESIST is set for release 14 December 2018 01 February 2019 via Vertigo Records. It’s their first record in almost five years, their last studio album, “Hydra“, was released early 2014. Within Temptation singer Sharon den Adel explained in an earlier interview how she was unable to write new Within Temptation songs and she doubted to continue with the band. “RESIST” will be an album which takes the nowadays pop songs into a new level, with heavy guitars and strong lyrics.
