Following the release of their two latest singles, Burning Bridges and One Second, Dutch symphonic hard rock/metal group Delain have announced details regarding their new dystopian record.
Their newest full-length offering, ‘Apocalypse & Chill’, features a blend of heavy rock and metal influences and marks a new chapter in the band’s evolving catalogue.
Apocalypse & Chill – out February 7, 2020 – explores topics of impending doom and human indifference, making this their boldest offering yet.
Brutal riffs, synth-heavy patterns and fully orchestrated compositions are accented by vocalist Charlotte Wessels’ vocal potency, while new influences may surprise.
The broad soundscape on Apocalypse & Chill ranges from anthemic rock to electronic metal and breaks all stereotypes, without losing the special Delain trademarks.
“We think this Apocalypse & Chill will surprise our listeners,” the bands say in a statement.
“It is heavy with new influences and we’re really curious to find out how our audience will respond to that.”
Delain surged into the music scene in 2006 with the release of their first album, ‘Lucidity’.
Now, in 2019, the band has five successful releases – including the hit album ‘Moonbathers’, which ranked in the top 20 in the Netherlands, Germany and Switzerland, as well as top 50 in the UK and Belgium.
Having toured the world as headliners, as well as supporting artists for notable bands like Sabaton and Nightwish, and having rocked festivals like Wacken Open Air and Download Festival, Delain have carved their niche within the scene.
Their single ‘Stardust’ from their chart-breaking album ‘The Human Contradiction’ has over 10 million views on YouTube and millions of streams on streaming platforms from all over the world.
