2016 means ten years of DELAIN – and therefore ten years of larger-than-life symphonic metal!

The band’s latest EP Lunar Prelude was a tasty treat earlier this year, but haven`t we all been waiting for the main course? Finally the wait is over, as DELAIN have now unveiled first and hotly anticipated details for their upcoming and fifth studio album titled Moonbathers, set to be released August 26th 2016 on Napalm Records!

Delain - MoonbathersDelain: “We have never had so many milestone events in one year. The release of our EP Lunar Prelude, our fifth studio album Moonbathers, our upcoming 10 year anniversarycelebrations and Live registration, and there is still more to come. All of this while playing our most heavy touring year ever. We are on a roll, and our new album Moonbathers is here to embody that. We hope you will enjoy this new effort and join us on our endeavors making 2016 the biggest year for Delain ever!”

Moonbathers, mastered by Grammy award winning Ted Jensen, will satiate your hunger for the symphonic greatness, catchy hooks and a solid dose of metal that the band is known for. It showcases DELAIN from both their most extravagant and sensitive sides as they explore all things nocturnal through an especially varied set of tracks including a surprising cover of classic rock legends Queen as well as a reappearance of Alissa White-Gluz as a special guest on opening track

“Hands Of Gold”.

The visual counterpart comes courtesy of longtime collaborator and neo-Victorian romantic Glenn Arthur.

The track list will read as follows:

  1. Hands Of Gold – Featuring Alissa White-Gluz
  2. The Glory and the Scum
  3. Suckerpunch
  4. The Hurricane
  5. Chrysalis – The Last Breath
  6. Fire With Fire
  7. Pendulum
  8. Danse Macabre
  9. Scandal
  10. Turn the Lights Out

Bonus CD

12. Suckerpunch – Live In The Netherlands
13. Turn The Lights Out – Live In The Netherlands
14. The Glory And The Scum – Live In The Netherlands
15. Don’t Let Go – Live In The Netherlands

With ten years, touring the world with acts such as Sabaton, Nightwish or Within Temptation, two EP’s and now their fifth full-length album under their belt, 2016 will undoubtedly prove to be the biggest year for DELAIN so far!
