In a recent interview with Metal Injection, Delain mastermind Martijn Westerholt (ex-Within Temptation) discussed four fifths of Delain shockingly exiting the band in 2022 and releasing a new album with a new lineup.
"I think [there are] healthy nerves, but also a lot of excitement as well. And it's just been one hell of a journey, really. Yeah, it really makes you feel alive, let's say that," Westerholt shared.
"Last year I was really nervous with the release of our first single in the summer. Man, it was like one of the most nerve wracking moments of my career because, indeed, we had a split. And of course the complete band broke up, and then I had to think after we broke up like okay, is this the end? Are we going to continue? If so, how are we going to continue? And then you're at that moment that you release your first single with a new vocalist. Man, that's quite a moment.
"And Delain really had a very loyal fan base and still has a very loyal fan base. And you know, that's the biggest challenge, to convince those people. And you will never convince everybody, and with a vocal change that always happens. But I really feel spoiled and blessed with all the responses and I'm so happy."
