Within Temptation have released their eighth studio album, “Bleed Out.”
Recently, the band also issued “Ritual,” the fifth single from the album.
“It’s a fun track about seduction,” vocalist Sharon Den Adel explained. “It’s about the lady taking power in a male dominated world and taking her own initiative.”
She added, “(It) is one of the kinkiest songs the band have ever written.”
“Bleed Out” Track Listing:
Earlier this year, Den Adel discussed the band’s decision to shift its focus from releasing albums to issuing a series of singles. “Since we started doing only singles, it takes so much more time, so much more effort, because every single is a single. It’s not just a random song on the album.”
