Delain’s “We Are The Others” gets a release date, finally.

After being embroiled in that old chestnut, record company politics, Dutch Symphonic Rockmeisters Delain are set to release their third album, “We Are The Others” on June 4th in the UK, with a release in Benelux and Germany slated for 1st June.  The first single, “Get The Devil Out Of Me”, is out in April (live versions are around on YouTube if you care to take a look…).

This is clearly good news if you’re a fan – symphonic metal of all stripes is pretty much my nerdy brand of catnip – and the story behind it is supremely frustrating as it illustrates why so many people won’t be sad to see the major record companies chomp the dismal dust – record company A buys smaller record company B and fires people, restructures the business and bands get caught in the middle, with their record ready to go and no ability to release it until wholly irrelevant business stuff is resolved.

Still, it appears that Delain can get on with releasing their record – frustratingly after their UK tour (which I’m going to) has finished.  Not knowing the songs didn’t make seeing Lacuna Coil any less enjoyable, so I’ll just have to do some YouTube detective work…
