Within Temptation Single & Tour


Within Temptation ENTERTAIN YOU

Release Their Brand New Single ‘ENTERTAIN YOU’

“There is blood on everyone’s hands!”

Offence, victimization and exploitation – it happens every day and is mainly justified under the name of economic necessity, politics, religion, culture, sex and race. Within Temptation’s new single, ‘Entertain You’, out today, revolves around the urge for self-gratification at the expense of the other.

Frontwoman Sharon den Adel comments, “We often cannot and do not want to see the consequences of our urge to satisfy our personal needs. To justify or simply avoid the misery we inflict on others, we simply look the other way or start pointing fingers. We should look into the mirror more often and start questioning our own beliefs. We should try to understand not only ourselves but also, and most importantly, the others and the world around us. It’s not the easiest way, but it’s certainly one that brings us further in this individualistic society.”


Listen to the brand new single ‘Entertain You’ now across all major streaming platforms. Smart link:

Over the past few years, Within Temptation’s flourishing career has been at its peak both creatively and in the live arena. Having sold over 150,000 tickets in eight countries for their Worlds Collide co-headline tour with US rock band Evanescence, sadly the current global situation has meant the tour has been postponed. Nevertheless, the dates have now been re-scheduled and the Worlds Collide tour will go ahead in September taking in major venues across Europe including the iconic O2 in London.



“We’re excited to announce the new dates of the Worlds Collide Tour. All existing tickets & VIP packages will remain valid for the rescheduled dates and all venues remain the same - except for Hamburg and Frankfurt. The Hamburg show will move to the Barclaycard Arena; all tickets will be honoured at the new venue and extra tickets to this show will be on sale immediately. We expect to have an update on Frankfurt shortly.”

Following up the release of HYDRA in 2014, the new musical era of Within Temptation has never been stronger, as newest record RESIST brings a futuristic take on metal to the table – both instrumentally and thematically. The message of Within Temptation’s seventh studio album is clear: RESIST. 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. It is an utterly distinctive metal record that takes inspiration from our modern and future society – both musically and personally – and casts it into mind blowing arrangements and dark melodies. And the most important message of it all?! “Wake up and protect your freedom!”




Within Temptation have shared the video for their new single, ‘Entertain You’. Dark and haunting, the video sees the band perform amid atmospheric black and white footage of vibrant performers, and visualises the track’s exploration of offence, victimization and exploitation.

An everyday occurrence justified under the name of economic necessity, politics, religion, culture, sex and race, ‘Entertain You’ revolves around the urge for self-gratification at the expense of the other.

Frontwoman Sharon den Adel explains, “Eventually everyone will have their own idea what the song and video are about. For us the inspiration comes from how we treat a certain group of people that don’t fit in our society and that we always feel a need to emphasize how much they do not fit in - so we can feel good about ourselves. We start singling them out, cornering them in all sorts of ways. Nowadays our first reaction is to film an incident instead of helping someone.”

They’re not here for our entertainment,” adds Den Adel. “It’s time for a bit more self reflection and to ask ourselves why we do it and think about the consequences for the other. Awareness is hopefully a step forward to change.”

Released earlier this month, ‘Entertain You’ peaked at #1 in the ‘Most Added Songs’ in the Billboard Mainstream Rock Indicator Chart and debuted in the Top 50 of the Mainstream Rock Charts in the USA within the first week of release.

It’s also had a fantastic reception in the UK with fans and media alike praising its dramatic new sound for the band. Stand by for further new music to come from Within Temptation as the year unfolds!
