Within Temptation Posts New Lyric Video “In Vain” Online

Dutch symphonic metal outfit Within Temptation has posted a new lyric video online for the song, “In Vain.” You can check it out below. “In Vain” appears on the band’s new album, “Resist,” which will be released on February 1st through Spinefarm/Universal Music.

“Resist is a true milestone for us. If it wasn’t for Resist, Within Temptation wouldn’t be here anymore,” the band stated.

“With this record, we’ve taken inspiration from modern music and gave it a face – a very dark one,” said singer Sharon den Adel. “Sometimes, it feels that today’s pop music lacks a rebellious edge. Our main goal was to collect pieces from sounds we did like and roughen it up as much as we could, resulting in a surprisingly new musical world that is heavier, dirtier and more futuristic than we’ve ever created before. Resist is our take on metal in a new way: to give modern music its rebellious edge.”
