Delain – Touring with Moonbathers
By Dave Schwartz

Delain has had an amazing year.  In February 2016 they released “Lunar Prelude,” an 8 song EP that spawned the single, "Suckerpunch.”  In August 2016 they released the 10-song album, “Moonbathers.”  In December they celebrated their 10th anniversary with a blowout show at Paradiso in Amsterdam.   And finally, Delain is just finishing up their first co-headlining tour of North America – teaming with HammerFall.  Each of these successes was the result of years of hard work. 

But once again, there’s no rest for the wicked.  In June Delain returns to Europe and festival season.  And later this year Delain will embark on the brief Danse Macabre Tour featuring Marco Hietala of Nightwish.  Hietala has contributed to most every album that Delain has produced and it’s exciting to hear that he will sharing the stage with Delain for a short string of shows. 

I climbed aboard the tour bus to share a moment with vocalist Charlotte Wessels and asked those questions and more.  Watch…
