Green screen videos
It’s not the first green screen video the Dutch rock band produced and released. It all started back in their 2003-released music video for “Ice Queen”. This video was the very first green screen released music video by Within Temptation.
After this video, more green screen released music videos followed, such as “Stand My Ground”, “The Howling”, “Whole World is Watching”, “And We Run” and “Raise Your Banner”.
On 01 February 2019, Within Temptation released their latest studio album, “RESIST”.
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.
