"We live in a world where cultures and beliefs are melting together, while at the same time acts of intolerance and injustice dominate the world," Within Temptation state. "Both societal issues and a rapid increase in sub-beliefs have resulted in fear, fragmentation and disconnect."
Singer Sharon den Adel furthers, "'Don't Pray For Me' strives against forcing beliefs and fears onto others and bears witness to being acceptive of everyone's own journey. It is an anthem about coming to terms with the fact that beliefs can be fluid, in multiples, or frankly, different. The song is about allowing people to pursue their own destiny."
"Don't Pray For Me" is the fourth single of Within Temptation's independent release series. The band has been busy in the studio writing and recording brand new songs for its forthcoming album, which it expects to release next year.
After a busy summer festival season, Within Temptation will embark on a U.S. tour with Iron Maiden, before kicking off their highly anticipated European co-headlining tour together with Evanescence, which is finally happening in November/December 2022. The Worlds Collide Tour, for which an impressive number of 175.000 tickets in eight countries were sold, will bring both bands to venues such as the O2 Arena in London, AccorHotels Arena in Paris, Velodrom in Berlin, and Palais 12 in Brussels.
