Within Temptation has released a video for the song “Supernova”. The song is taken from the band’s latest album, “Resist” which was released on February 1.
“I wrote this song for my dad,” singer Sharon Den Adel said. “He died last year in April. It’s about the fact, when somebody passes away, you hope they’ll give you a sign that they’re okay. This song is about you hoping to see this ‘supernova,’ this super-bright star. This super glow, like a sign from this afterlife.”
“Resist” track listing:
01. The Reckoning (feat. Jacoby Shaddix)
02. Endless War
03. Raise Your Banner (feat. Anders Fridén)
05. Holy Ground
06. In Vain
07. Firelight (feat. Jasper Steverlinck)
08. Mad World
09. Mercy Mirror
10. Trophy Hunter
“‘Resist’ is a true milestone for us. If it wasn’t for ‘Resist’, Within Temptation wouldn’t be here anymore,” the band stated.
“With this record, we’ve taken inspiration from modern music and gave it a face — a very dark one,” Sharon said. “Sometimes, it feels that today’s pop music lacks a rebellious edge. Our main goal was to collect pieces from sounds we did like and roughen it up as much as we could, resulting in a surprisingly new musical world that is heavier, dirtier and more futuristic than we’ve ever created before. ‘Resist’ is our take on metal in a new way: to give modern music its rebellious edge.”
