Within Temptation released studio album “RESIST”
01 February 2019

It’s a good day. Within Temptation released their seventh full length studio album “RESIST” today, Friday 01 February 2019. It’s their first studio album since their 2014-release “Hydra”. Was it worth the 5 year wait?


For this new studio album, Within Temptation signed a new album deal with the German based Vertigo Music, which is part of Universal Music. It will be their first release through this label. The reason why it took the Dutch rock band 5 years to return back with a new album is known already. Singer-songwriter Sharon den Adel faced a writers block and could not find any new inspiration to continue with Within Temptation. Next to this, her father got very sick and it was time for Sharon to take a break

After this, she returned to songwriting after a while. Her first solo project was born, “My Indigo“, with a first single late 2017, and her solo album early 2018. During her solo project, she finally found the mood and motivation again to write for Within Temptation. It took the band only a year to write, record and master this album. Fans already got a preview for this album, with the release of four singles and five out of ten tracks performed live during their RESIST Europe 2018 tour.

It is pretty common these days, artists releasing their music on Vinyl LP, this kind of media made a strong comeback. Some artists even re-issue their album on limited and coloured discs. So did Within Temptation. For the very first time, they released their debut EP “The Dance” and CD “Enter” via own label.

In 2019, Within Temptation is even planning on releasing their full discography on vinyl LP! Yay!
