Within Temptation Announce New Single ‘Don’t Pray For Me’ – July 8th @ Sounderground.net

New York, NY (Top40 Charts) On July 8, 2022, WITHIN TEMPTATION will release their brand-new single ‘Don’t Pray For Me’ – the fourth single of the band’s independent releases and leading up to their forthcoming album. The legendary leaders of dark anthemic music, with a career spanning two decades and with 7 studio albums under their belt – all accounting for more than 4 million record sales to their name – remain a genuine force to be reckoned with.

These past years Within Temptation have shifted their focus from releasing albums to releasing a series of singles, enabling the band members to indulge themselves in their creative processes thus delivering freshly inspired music. The band have released ‘Entertain You’, ‘The Purge’ and ‘Shed My Skin’, singles that have all thrilled their fanbase, had great critical reception in the UK and Europe, peaked in the top 20 of the US Billboard Mainstream Rock Indicator Charts and topped the official German charts.

And now band is gearing up for the release of the next single ‘Don’t Pray For Me’.

Vocalist Sharon den Adel comments: “‘Don’t Pray For Me’ strives against forcing beliefs and fears onto others and bears witness to being acceptive of everyone’s own journey. It is an anthem about coming to terms with the fact that beliefs can be fluid, multiple or, frankly, different. The song is about allowing people to pursue their own destiny.”

Within Temptation have been busy in the studio writing and recording brand new songs for their forthcoming album, which they expect to release next year. The remainder of 2022 will be filled up with a European Summer festival season, a USA tour with Iron Maiden and their much anticipated co-headlining European tour together with Evanescence in the autumn of 2022.
