Having recently announced their new label home with UK-based Dramatico, the multimillion-selling Dutch symphonic rock band Within Temptation have signed a licensing deal with Nuclear Blast Entertainment for the North American territory. The band is currently working on the follow-up to 2011's The Unforgiving.
"There are very few bands out there today who continually deliver on such a high and consistent level as Within Temptation," states Nuclear Blast Entertainment President Monte Conner. "That is why they have such an incredibly loyal worldwide fan base. I am thrilled they chose NBE as their US partner. Their fans are in for a real treat come later this year."
Equally excited are vocalist Sharon den Adel and guitarist Robert Westerholt, who comment: "We were looking for a partnership with a passionate and artist-minded company. Monte Conner, Markus Staiger (label owner), and the people at Nuclear Blast exactly fit this profile."
A late 2013 release date is expected for the band's sixth studio album and you can watch a 20-second teaser for their new single and video below.
