Great news for fans of Dutch symphonic rockers Within Temptation. The band has just announced that in addition to signing with a new label partner, BMG Rights, they are aiming to put out a new album in the fall.

Having formed in 1996, Within Temptation have been treating fans to their signature brand of symphonic goth rock for over 15 years, with five full-length albums released within that time period. Fans of the band have shown a stunning devotion to their Scandinavian heroes, with the outfit taking home 2011 Loudwire Music Awards for Artist of the Year, Rock Album of the Year ('The Unforgiving') and Rock Goddess of the Year for vocalist Sharon den Adel.

Within Temptation broke the good news to their fans via the band's official website:

Hi everyone,

We have been, and we are still hiding in our studios since winter started. With every writing session new things are happening. We are experimenting a lot and are trying to hold on to this magical feeling.

We are looking forward to the moment that we can share with you where this journey has taken us.

We are excited to have found a new enthusiastic label partner, BMG Rights, with whom are aiming for a release in autumn, which perfectly fits the mood of the album. As soon as we can, we will share more information about the new album. In the mean time we will see you on the road this summer!

Sharon, Ruud, Stefan, Martijn, Jeroen, Mike and Robert

So far, Within Temptation have signed on to perform at three European summer festivals, but stay tuned for more dates to be announced.
