Within Temptation Search For Redemption On New Single The Purge

Watch the official video for Within Temptation’s soaring latest single, The Purge.

Within Temptations bold new single The Purge now has an official accompanying video, with the Dutch symphonic metallers giving vocalist Sharon den Adel’s powerful lyrics a whole new meaning.

The Purge revolves around self-reflection and a search for redemption,” she explains. No-one gets through life without scars or without inflicting them on others and there will always be moments in your life you start questioning your choices. You start realizing you’ve made mistakes, causing harm to not only others but also to yourself. To confess, to acknowledge and to accept these mistakes, can be a very painful process – however, unescapable when the burden becomes too heavy.”

The Purge follows 2020 single Entertain You, and arrives ahead of Within Temptation’s co-headline tour with Evanescence in 2021.

We’re going to make a new stage set especially for this tour, because the venues are a bit bigger,” Sharon told Kerrang! of what to expect from these gigs. Most of the time what we brought was too big for the venues we played. But there are people who came to see us already on the Resist tour, so we want to make something special for those people as well. We try to make it so that the visuals support the music, but the music is the most essential thing, of course. You want to have the whole experience and that’s what we’re trying to do with the live show. It’s a whole experience built around the songs and the music.”

Fingers crossed The Purge will now be included in the setlist and this entire new experience’.
