Roadrunner Records U.K. has posted the following update from Holland's WITHIN TEMPTATION:"In November last year, our third album, 'The Silent Force', came out in Europe and we recently just released it in the U.K. as well. Things have been going great, and after a summer full of cool European shows it was also good to see some of our U.K. fans in London and at the Bloodstock Festival earlier this month [September]. We are happy and a little proud to look back on a year full of highlights. "Now, the festival season is almost over. Everyone thinks WITHIN TEMPTATION are going to sit back and put our feet up! On the contrary, we are currently preparing the release of a new live DVD which will contain the special concert we did on Amsterdam's Java Island, cuts from many other live shows, interviews and backstage footage plus the promo videos since the previous DVD (from the 'Mother Earth' tour). We want to get as many highlights on the DVD(s) as possible for our fans! The release of the 'The Silent Force Tour' DVD is scheduled for November 21st. And in the U.K., to follow on from our first single 'Stand My Ground', we are also working on our second single — which will be 'Angels'. "But there is still more good news to announce! There will be a new album in 2006, maybe around the summer. Before that though, a new band member will see the light of day... Sharon [den Adel, vocals] is five months pregnant and she and Robert [Westerholt, guitar] expect a baby in January 2006. "The last two years have really given a boost to our inspiration for new songs — we already have a lot of ideas. After the DVD is finished we will be concentrating on writing in order to surprise you with a fresh and an interesting mix of songs as soon as possible! "Today we have been informed that WITHIN TEMPTATION have been nominated for the 'Best Dutch & Belgian Act' Award at MTV's European Music Awards held in Lisbon on November 3rd. If you like, you can vote for WITHIN TEMPTATION at ema.mtv.nl. "We would like to thank all of our fans who made it possible for us to play so many international festivals and shows this summer. We enjoyed being on stage in front of you very much and we look forward to seeing you again very soon!"
