DELAIN Releases Music Video For New Single 'Burning Bridges'

Dutch symphonic metallers DELAIN have release the official music video for their new single, "Burning Bridges". The emotive clip highlights the spectacular vocal talents of vocalist Charlotte Wessels, and once again, the undeniable atmospheric range of DELAIN's music solidified by their potent previous releases.

Juxtaposing multiple genres and musical landscapes, "Burning Bridges" not only confirms the fascinating duality of DELAIN's concept, but also allows Wessels to unleash her hard rock-tinged charisma in melodic chorus — the central point of the diverse song structure. Combined with the music video’s breathtaking aesthetics, "Burning Bridges" is in line to become a signature track amidst DELAIN's catalog — combining gripping guitar solos, cinematic instrumentals, and outstanding vocal performances.

After creating suspense with the previous release of two video teasers, DELAIN unfolds the entire story in their new music video.

The band states: "We are proud to present 'Burning Bridges', the first track off our sixth full-studio album. With its energy and bombast, the track marries some of our favorite musical elements, and introduces a real-life choir as a new color on our palate. We hope you enjoy the track, along with its video, shot in beautiful Snowdonia."

This past June, Wessels confirmed that DELAIN was putting the finishing touches on its new album for an early 2020 release.

DELAIN's latest release was "Hunter's Moon", which came out in February via Napalm Records. The effort consisted of new studio tracks accompanied by a live Blu-ray from the group's sold-out "Danse Macabre" 2017 European tour.

DELAIN drummer Joey De Boer is missing at least the first few shows of the band's current North American tour. According to a Facebook post by the Dutch metal band, "there has been a delay" in obtaining Joey's U.S. visa and "it may take as much as a couple of weeks to get" the paperwork processed. Filling in for him is AMORPHIS drummer Jan Rechberger.

Guitarist Merel Bechtold left DELAIN in June to focus on different musical ambitions. Her final performance with DELAIN took place on June 23 at the Graspop Metal Meeting in Dessel, Belgium.
