Legendary leaders of dark anthemic music, with a career spanning two decades and with 7 studio albums under their belt – Enter , Mother Earth , The Silent Force , The Heart of Everything , The Unforgiving , Hydra  and RESIST : all accounting for more than 4 million record sales to their name – are a genuine force to be reckoned with. Simply, one of the world’s most successful heavy rock groups.
In the past three years, the band released a series of independent releases – “Entertain You”, “The Purge”, “Shed My Skin” and “Don’t Pray For Me”, singles that all peaked in the top 20 of the US Billboard Mainstream Rock Indicator Charts and topped the official German charts. The band’s work has received numerous international awards, including a World Music Award, MTV Europe Music Awards, a Metal Hammer Award and many more, as well as millions of streams on their hit songs such as breakthrough song ‘Ice Queen’, Paradise ‘(What About Us?)’ (feat. Tarja) and their collaboration with Jacoby Shaddix of Papa Roach for ‘The Reckoning’.
WITHIN TEMPTATION has previously headlined all the major festivals in Europe – Download, Hellfest, Wacken Open Air, Graspop and Woodstock Poland amongst other major events. During the lockdown, the band has achieved great success with their virtual event ‘The Aftermath’ – a spectacular online show that, thanks to the very latest technology, allows the band to stretch the boundaries of reality. After the release, the band embarked on an American tour with the legendary IRON MAIDEN, appearing as their special guests during the second leg of the tour. In November/December 2022, the Dutch band finally went on their highly anticipated and long awaited “WORLDS COLLIDE TOUR” – a massive European co-headline tour together with EVANESCENCE. The band has toured Europe’s most important venues, including The O2 in London, Accorhotels Arena in Paris, and Ziggo Dome in the Netherlands, selling close to 200.000 tickets for this tour.
2023 is set to be a very promising year, with the release of a stream of brand new singles, and a brand new album in the fall of the year!
