WITHIN TEMPTATION To Release 'Utopia' Single

Dutch female-fronted symphonic metallers WITHIN TEMPTATION will release a new live album, "An Acoustic Night At The Theatre", on October 30 in Germany, Austria and Switzerland and November 2 in the rest of Europe. According to the band, the CD will contain a brand new song called "Utopia". "It's a duet between [WITHIN TEMPTATION singer] Sharon [den Adel] and Chris Jones. The ['Utopia'] single will also contain 'Restless', recorded live at our show in Eindhoven in 2007."

The group adds, "This single will only be available in stores in the Benelux from October 23, so if you want to have it, you can order it on iTunes or through our webshop in a few weeks."

"An Acoustic Night At The Theatre" contains "acoustic live tracks that were recorded during our sold-out theatre tour in November 2008," according to WITHIN TEMPTATION. "These were very special concerts, as we added an acoustic set to our live show, making our show more intimate. Besides this we used film projections emphasizing the great theatre ambiance."

Sharon den Adel and WITHIN TEMPTATION guitarist Robert Westerholt welcomed their second child, Robin Aiden Westerholt, on June 1. The couple also has a three-year old daughter named Eva Luna den Adel.

WITHIN TEMPTATION is taking a break from touring during 2009 but is continuing to work on new material. A new album is expected in 2010.

WITHIN TEMPTATION released a brand new double-DVD, titled "Black Symphony", on September 22, 2008. It is also available as a double-CD.
