WITHIN TEMPTATION are from Waddinxveen, Netherlands & formed together in 1996 by vocalist Sharon den Adel and guitarist Robert Westerholt.
According to a press release, “Entertain You” has arrived one week after the last show of the “Worlds Collide Tour” was supposed to happen. The co-headline tour with EVANESCENCE was originally planned for April 2020, but due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it has now been postponed to September 2020. The “Worlds Collide Tour” , which had an impressive 150,000 tickets sold in 8 countries, will go ahead as planned across venues such as the O2 Arena in London, AccorHotels Arena in Paris, Velodrom in Berlin, and Palais 12 in Brussels.
In a recent interview with KERRANG magazine, Vocalist Sharon den Adel says of the track:
“(The song)revolves around the urge for self-gratification at the expense of the other.. We often cannot and do not want to see the consequences of our urge to satisfy our personal needs,” she explains. “To justify or simply avoid the misery we inflict on others, we simply look the other way or start pointing fingers. We should look into the mirror more often and start questioning our own beliefs. We should try to understand not only ourselves but also, and most importantly, the others and the world around us. It’s not the easiest way, but it’s certainly one that brings us further in this individualistic society.”
