Martijn Westerholt (Delain)



Fans of Delain expecting a new album in the wake of recent successful tours might well have been surprised by the appearance instead of the new ‘Lunar Prelude’ EP.

I had the pleasure of interviewing founding member and keyboard player Martijn Westerholt for Fireworks Magazine. He was great fun to chat to, and more than happy to give me the low down on the EP, album plans and forthcoming live work. He also had some interesting things to say about cultural differences between audiences in different parts of the world, and even in different parts of Germany!

The interview has recently been published on the Fireworks/Rocktopia website and can be read in full here:

I’ve been really impressed with the band’s recent output and, as you’ll see from the interview, their live show. They’ve recently expanded their line-up and now benefit from the skills of ‘second’ guitarist Merel Bechtold.

If you don’t know the band, or even if you do, check out the video for the new single ‘Suckerpunch’. It augers well for the forthcoming album, which, Martijn assured me, is on the way!
