DELAIN Joined By NIGHTWISH's HIETALA, Former AFTER FOREVER Singer At Zwolle Concert

DELAIN's "special show" on Saturday, October 31 at Broerenkerk in Zwolle, Holland was professionally filmed for possible release. Joining the group during the performance were special guests Marco Hietala (NIGHTWISH, TAROT) and Floor Jansen (AFTER FOREVER, REVAMP).

Fan-filmed video footage of the concert can be viewed below. Photos are available at this location.

DELAIN's second album, "April Rain", entered the German Media Control chart at position No. 96. The CD was released in North America on June 30 via Sensory Records (with U.S. distribution through Ryko and Canadian distribution through Sonic Unyon). The North American version of the album features a bonus track — "Come Closer" — which was previously only available on the limited-edition digipack version of the LP.

DELAIN recently parted ways with guitarist Ronald Landa due to musical differences. A replacement axeman has yet to be announced.

DELAIN bassist Rob van der Loo will sit out the band's European tour with SONATA ARCTICA due to other personal commitments. He will be temporarily replaced by Roel Vink. Rob will still play the tour's Dutch dates.

DELAIN has been confirmed as one of the headliners of the Femme Metal Festival, set to take place November 7-8, 2009 at The Asylum (Saturday) in Birmingham and The Peel (Sunday) in London, United Kingdom.
