Dutch female-fronted symphonic metallers DELAIN have inked a worldwide deal with Napalm Records.
A statement from the label reads as follows: "Last week, DELAIN's Charlotte and Martijn hopped on a plane to Austria in order to pay the Napalm Records headquarters a visit and to sign a worldwide contract. As you can see in the picture below], they did it voluntarily without being coerced into anything. The new partnership was celebrated by hitting the snowy and icy slopes surrounding Eisenerz, where Austrian and Dutch racers met in a friendly competition. As behind the microphone, Charlotte gave 110% and broke her arm while racing to a well-deserved victory. Don’t worry, though, she’s fine and DELAIN is the latest addition to the ever-growing Napalm Records family! Welcome!"
Added the band: "We are so much looking forward to the cooperation with Napalm Records. This is the perfect label for us, and this cooperation makes it possible for us to build on and reach out to our fans."
Stated Thomas Caser, head of A&R at Napalm: "Having been a fan and follower of the band since its beginning, I personally am extremely proud that DELAIN are now part of our roster. The band shares our visions and together we will bring DELAIN to the top!"
DELAIN's third full-length studio album, "We Are The Others", was released in North America via the New Jersey-based top-tier progressive metal label Sensory Records. CNR Entertainment handled the release in The Netherlands and Roadrunner Records issued the CD in the rest of Europe.
The "Get The Devil Out Of Me" video can be seen below. The clip features footage from the recording sessions for the new CD and live material, including footage from the Sonisphere festival in the U.K. (used with kind permission of BlinkTV).
Described as "the band's most powerful, most atmospheric and intoxicating album to date," "We Are The Others" was helmed by producer Jacob Hellner — renowned for his work with RAMMSTEIN, CLAWFINGER and APOCALYPTICA — while the vocals were tracked with the Epicentre team of Fredrik Thomander and Anders Wikström (SCORPIONS, BACKYARD BABIES).
