“Throughout history people have always been searching for ways to cleanse themselves. They’ve always been searching for… The Purge”
Dutch powerhouse Within Temptation have released the video for their brand-new single ‘The Purge’, which sees frontwoman Sharon den Adel search for self-redemption.
The track is a full-throttle rock song, heavy and dramatic with an addictive chorus, and contains elements of the classic Within Temptation sound, whilst pushing forward into new sonic territory and has received an amazing response from international press.
“The Purge’ revolves around self-reflection and a search for redemption”, says Adel. “No one gets through life without scars or without inflicting them on others and there will always be moments in your life you start questioning your choices. You start realizing you’ve made mistakes, causing harm to not only others but also to yourself. To confess, to acknowledge and to accept these mistakes, can be a very painful process – however, unescapable when the burden becomes too heavy.”
