At the same time though, Sharon apologises to fans that this means the tour dates for Spring 2011 have been re-scheduled for Autumn 2011.  She admits:  “To be honest, this was not planned, but we are very happy about this surprise! Our children are an enrichment of our lives.”

The dates in London, Paris, Vienna, and Copenhagen have already been upgraded to bigger venues. Due to this strong demand, the band are pleased to announce 12 additional shows to the re-scheduled European tour. The tour now kicks off on September 21st and will also see the band visit Portugal and the Czech Republic.

Within Temptation are currently in the studio finalizing their long awaited fifth studio album with producer Daniel Gibson. Titled ‘The Unforgiving’, this is the band’s first concept album and is based on a comic book story written by script writer Steven O’Connell (BloodRayne & Dark 48). The band asked comic artist Romano Molenaar (Witchblade, Darkness and X-Men) to draw the characters and scenery of ‘The Unforgiving’.

The album is set for release in late March 2011, via Sony Music in Continental Europe and Roadrunner Records in the US, UK and Ireland, Japan, and Australia.

Tickets purchased for the original dates will remain valid for all rescheduled dates.
