New Release: Delain - Moonbathers (August 2016)

2016 seems to be a massive year for Dutch metallers, Delain. They released their EP Lunar Prelude, celebrate their 10 year anniversary, are planning a live DVD, are touring wildly and are about to release their fifth studio album, Moonbathers on 26th August on Napalm Records.

The band say:
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 anniversary celebrations 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 endeavours 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.
