On July 24th Roadrunner released the new, highly anticipated Within Temptation album, The Heart of Everything, in the US and Canada, and the disc went on to debut at #1 on the Heatseekers chart.
The award-winning Dutch band has also announced dates for their flagship North American headlining tour. The tour is set to kick off on September 5th in Boston, MA. Tickets for all venues are currently on sale.
The Heart of Everything is a thirteen-song rollercoaster ride of dynamic female vocals coupled with catchy, epic orchestral music. The band is a staple on the European music scene, having stemmed from a loyal homeland following and a strong footing in the modern gothic rock community. Fusing poignantly composed rock with ethereal female vocals, the band has achieved multi-platinum success across Europe, fostered by relentless touring.
The first single from The Heart of Everything, "What Have You Done," includes guest vocals by Keith Caputo, vocalist of Life of Agony. The single has been well received in the radio community, garnering adds at radio stations throughout the U.S. Programming directors across the country are spinning the track at both modern rock and metal formats. Program director Dom Nardella at WKRI, a modern rock station in Cleveland, Ohio states, "Within Temptation had the phones going nuts after just two plays! I never believe that when I hear it, but this time it's true!" Destined to penetrate the surface of modern rock, The Heart of Everything is packed with solid tracks that command radio and listener attention.
