With the successful release of their fifth album ‘The Unforgiving’ last year, Dutch symphonic metalers Within Temptation have revealed that they already have written six songs for their next studio album.

In an interview with Radiometal.com, frontwoman Sharon del Adel says, “I must say that we’ve already written six songs, so we’re working fast : these six songs will be on the album and are very good.”

She adds, “It surprises me, because sometimes it’s a real struggle to write new songs, but apparently 'The Unforgiving' album is quite inspiring and we’ll continue in that direction.”

With ‘The Unforgiving’ being a concept album based on a comic book, Adel also reveals that the band has started writing a script for a full length film. “We’ve already made three short movies for our last album and a year ago, we started to write a script for a full-length movie, but we’re not sure when we’ll release it, because we do not want our album to suffer from this project. Once ready, everybody will know.”

Within Tempation are currently are currently on a worldwide tour and will have a special show in Belgium on Nov. 13 in order to celebrate 15 years together as a band. For a full list of tour dates, go here.
