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!
“We have never had so many milestone events in one year. The release of our EPLunar Prelude, our fifth studio album Moonbathers, our upcoming 10 year anniversarycelebrations and Live registration, and there is still more to come. All of this whileplaying our most heavy touring year ever. We are on a roll, and our new albumMoonbathers is here to embody that. We hope you will enjoy this new effort and join uson 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.
