Metal Shock Finland recently caught up with DELAIN vocalist Charlotte Wessels to discuss their new album and more. Check it out via the player below:

Charlotte on new release, Interlude: "We’ve got some new tracks, some covers, live tracks, remixes as well and a DVD. It’s a very complete package of the kinds of things we’ve collected over the years. At one point when we looked at all the material, we thought there is so much stuff, it actually deserves a record of its own. So we reworked everything, re-recorded some stuff and that became Interlude – we’re very happy to have it and to release it very soon. The live tracks bring back good memories from that gig, so it will be cool for people who were there to hear that and for people who haven’t seen us before.

Go to this location for a partial transcript. The interview will also be aired on Blackdiamond's Metal Mayhem via on Tuesday, May 7th from 10:00am GMT.

Delain thank their loyal supporters by presenting them with a special release. Interlude is a fantastic blend of brand-new songs, special versions and mixes of popular Delain tracks, covers ('Smalltown Boy', 'Such A Shame') and the beautiful single, 'Are You Done With Me'. Thanks to the new mix, the well-known anthem shines with a new-found splendor.

The album includes a special bonus DVD featuring exclusive live footage and all clips from the band’s career. Interlude is not only a must for loyal Delain fans, but also for those who have not experienced the music by Charlotte Wessels and her bandmembers so far. It is the perfect introduction to the world of Delain and the starting point to an emotional and bombastic journey.
