2003-11-07 00:00 - ORPHANAGE are in the middle of the recording process for their new album, which will be released in april 2004. The band just got confirmed as support act for the following WITHIN TEMPTATION shows:
13.12.2003 Paris - „Elysée Montmartre“
20.12.2003 Nürnberg - „Löwensaal“
21.12.2003 München - „New Backstage“
22.12.2003 Stuttgart - „LKA-Longhorn“
Between both bands there is a long friendship and also a musical connection. ORPHANAGE guitar player (and vocalist) Guus Eikens composed the hit single “Mother Earth” along with Robert Westerholt. The new track “Jane Doe”, which is featured on the single version of “Mother Earth” was written by Guus himself. While WITHIN TEMPTATION just received a gold record in Germany, ORPHANAGE is working on their fourth record. Especially the track “The Sign” shows the new direction of the dutch Gothic Metal act. More melodic, with the beautiful voice of Rosan van der Aa, but still with the deep voice of George Oosthoek, who also sung on “Deep Within” of the first WITHIN TEMPTATION album “Enter” (see also on their DVD). “The Sign” will be released on a limited tour edition EP, along with the german version of “At The Mountains Of Madness”, which will be called “In den Bergen des Irrsinns”, plus the old classic “Inside”. Something really big is growing there; expect a firework of emotions and don’t miss them along with WITHIN TEMPTATION.
