Fronted by the fiery-tressed Charlotte Wessels, Delain is the brainchild of ex-Within Temptation keyboardist, Martijn Westerholt. Originally conceived by Westerholt as an all-star studio project, the success of the debut album Lucidity tipped his hand and Delain evolved into a full blown band. The immediate impact of their debut “Lucidity”, put Delain on tour. An instant live hit, the band’s popularity continued to grow with the release of their 2nd album “April Rain”. The band found themselves on tour through out Europe, USA, Mexico, and Brazil.
We have been following the career of keyboardist Martijn Westerholt dating back to his days as an original member of Within Temptation as well as his current band Delain's first album "Lucidity".
Through a licensing agreement with Roadrunner NL, we are honored to present the North American release of Delain's sophomore release "April Rain". Street date is June 30, 2009 and will arrive in a digipak with an exclusive bonus track. At some point in the future we hope/expect to bring Delain over here for live performances.
