Delain drop their new album Apocalypse & Chill on February 7th, but kick off their UK (OK, English) dates a day earlier in Birmingham on the 6th. Before that, though, they’ve released a video for “Ghost House Heart” which you can enjoy below. Pre-order the album at Amazon and help support this site!
Apocalypse & Chill explores topics of impending doom and human indifference, making this their boldest, most daring, and undeniable offering yet. Brutal riffs, synth-heavy patterns and fully orchestrated compositions accented by vocalist Charlotte Wessels’ extraordinary vocal potency will enthral the listener, while new influences may surprise. Martijn Westerholt valorised the music and direction of the album not just as keyboard player but as producer. The broad soundscape on Apocalypse & Chill ranges from anthemic rock to electronic metal, breaking stereotypes without losing unique Delain trademarks.
The dates in full are:
- Thu 6th Feb – BIRMINGHAM O2 Institute
- Fri 7th Feb – MANCHESTER O2 Ritz
- Sat 8th Feb – BRISTOL Anson Rooms
- Sun 9th Feb – LONDON Electric Brixton
