First single: “Faster”. Premiere: 21-01!

Unforgiving 2

“Faster and Faster and Faster”…. the lyrics of Within Temptation’s new single set the pace for the exciting weeks to come.

The energetic and adrenalin boasting song  will receive its Worldwide Premiere on Guardian Media Group’s ‘Rock Radio’ network in the United Kingdom on Friday January 21st at 9am GMT / 10am CET.  Fans worldwide can tune in online to hear the single at (those in Manchester can tune in at 106.1 FM and Scotland 96.3FM).

Robert:  “Faster” is a song which surprised ourselves. It’s a very fresh new sound wrapped around the 80′ties heart and soul of the track. “Faster” reflects one of the many musical roots we have. Combined with the modern influences on our new album, it’s like the past and future created the present.”

The next milestone in our journey leading to  ”The Unforgiving” album release will be the world premiere of one of the movies featured in “The Unforgiving” film trailer. Mark the 31st of  January in your calendar, this is the day the door to “The Unforgiving” will open!

  • Tash

    How exciting! I am going to leaving work earlier tomorrow! Can’t wait to hear Faster!

  • scream

    You are the best !!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Anne

    It’s just slightly disappointing that it will be presented in UK only (okay, we’ve got internet, but hey), although your roots lie in The Netherlands. I think it’s good you try to get some fame, but why not present the new single in your home country first?

    Well, can’t wait for the single, anyway.

  • vtsx3

    That is gonna be at 4am over here—sigh—guess I’ll set my alarm!

  • jane97

    Great! :D

  • hartogendelano

    @Anne Yes, but…. everyone can listen to this. For me it’s not a big deal, even if they would decide to broadcast it on the moon, as long as I can hear it :p

  • daaniejel

    Ill have my exam for physics =( i wont be able to concentrate

  • weatherluvr

    Well –based on the 90 secs or so that was leaked–I think I’m really gonna like this song :-) But I have to say I think Where is the Edge is the better of the two! haven’t heard enough of In the Middle of the Night to tell about that one.

  • EvelineWT

  • Mikeallen

    Heard ‘Faster’! Well it is a little bit different from previous singles, but it is a good single. It is a little more mainstream rock than usual but I like Sharon’s vocals. If it can get more people liking Within Temptation’s music then all the better.

  • aoefreak666

    Love it…it is different from the “old” wt….but I think it’s great….thumbs up here WT !!!! :-)

  • poeva

    I miss in that single more orchestral music….but, its soooo goood single! I like it a lot!
