Dutch rock band Within Temptation released their music video for the recently released brand new track “The Purge”. The single, released 20 November 2020 via independent label, came just over a year after their latest full length studio album “RESIST”. This new single is a new direction which Within Temptation is ready to head into.

“The Purge”

The single was announced via social media as a heavy track with ‘And yes, it has that old school Within Temptation vibe!!’ – and it does. The song, written by longtime producer Daniel Gibson together with Robert Westerholt and Sharon den Adel is heavy from begin to end.

The music video also takes us back to the older eras, with in general the “The Silent Force“-era, as the released music video reminded fans of the “Stand My Ground” music video.

New Within Temptation album

For fans who got excited with the release of the new single by the Dutch rock band, might be slightly disappointed by the fact that Within Temptation is not yet planning to release a full length follow up studio album. Their 2018-release is still fresh in their memory.

The most concrete goal is to release three singles per year and six singles every two years, with eventually a potential album release. The direct goal is to release new tracks more consistently, resulting in both the band and the fans being at the forefront of fresh, newly composed music.
