We Are the Others is the third full-length album by the Dutch symphonic metal band Delain. It was released in the Benelux and Germany on June 1 and in the United Kingdom and France on June 4, 2012, by CNR Music,[3] who took over Delain when Warner Music refused to release We Are the Others. The first single, "Get the Devil Out of Me", was released on April 13. The second single "We Are The Others" and its video was released on September 11, 2012. This is the first album by Delain without any studio songs with guest vocalist Marco Hietala. Live versions of "The Gathering" and "Control the Storm" are featured on the special edition of the album with Hietala singing his parts live.

History[edit]

During their 2011 live shows, Delain debuted three new songs from the album – "Manson" (which was later renamed to "Mother Machine"), "Get the Devil Out of Me" and "Milk and Honey".

In an interview with Sonic Cathedral, vocalist Charlotte Wessels discussed the inspiration she drew from the Sophie Lancaster case:

Originally intended for release in early 2012,[5] the album's release date was unknown after Warner Music's purchase of Roadrunner Records[4] but it was announced via a Facebook message on the band official page that the album would be released on the 1st June 2012 with the album's first single, "Get the Devil Out of Me", being released on 13 April 2012.[6] The song was released for listening online on April 3 on their official website.[7] The second single from the album was announced as the title track, "We Are the Others", and a music video was filmed.[8] Several well-known personalities from the metal scene appear in this video, such as George Oosthoek, Sharon den Adel, Robert Westerholt and ex-member Rob van der Loo.
