Rock / Metal Icons WITHIN TEMPTATION’S are back with a double helping of new music. Raise Your Banner and Mad World are taken from the highly anticipated new album Resist which will be released 14th December 2018. Raise Your Banner features In Flames frontman Anders Fridén.
The message of WITHIN TEMPTATION’S seventh studio album is clear: RESIST. Sharon: “It’s important to resist, because in today’s society people increasingly get oppressed by social subjection – a process fueled by authorities, dictators but also multi-nationals that manipulate and control. We have to break free in order to develop ourselves, especially when we are constantly being controlled and monitored by a higher power”.
Watch the ‘Raise Your Banner’ lyric video below.
This wake-up call soars through the album track list as a sharpened knife. RESIST is armed with ten anthemic tracks, driven by grand melodies and dark hooks. “RESIST is a true milestone for us. If it wasn’t for RESIST, WITHIN TEMPTATION wouldn’t be here anymore.” “Resist is a true milestone for us. If it wasn’t for Resist, Within Temptation wouldn’t be here anymore. With this record, we’ve taken inspiration from modern music and gave it a face – a very dark one. Sometimes it feels that today’s pop music lacks a rebellious edge.
