Within Temptation: New single ‘Don’t Pray For Me’

July 8th, Amsterdam: Dutch symphonic metal superstars Within Temptation’s newest single ‘Don’t Pray For Me’ is released today.

An anthem for pursuing one’s own destiny, the band state: “We live in a world where cultures and beliefs are melting together, while at the same time acts of intolerance and injustice dominate the world. Both societal issues and a rapid increase in sub-beliefs have resulted in fear, fragmentation and disconnect”.

Vocalist Sharon den Adel continues: “‘Don’t Pray For Me’ strives against forcing beliefs and fears onto others and bears witness to being acceptive of everyone’s own journey. It is an anthem about coming to terms with the fact that beliefs can be fluid, multiple or frankly: different. The song is about allowing people to pursue their own destiny.”

‘Don’t Pray For Me’ is the fourth single of Within Temptation’s independent releases. The band has been busy in the studio writing and recording brand new songs for their forthcoming album, which they expect to release next year.

The remainder of 2022 will be filled with a European Summer festival season, a USA tour with Iron Maiden and their co-headlining European tour together with Evanescence in the autumn of 2022.
