In February of 2021, fans of Delain got a huge shock when they found out the band would be parting dissolving, and that Delain would be continuing as a solo project by founder, keyboardist and main song writer Martijn Westerholt. Surrounded by much uncertainty, Westerholt announced that the Delain would revert to its original format of a project; working with different guest musicians.

A few months later in June however, it was announced that the band would indeed continue on as a live band and that a new lineup would shortly be announced, still keeping the same DNA that Delain is known for. Original members Sander Zoer (drums) and Ronald Landa (guitar) were then announced as returning, followed by the introduction of Delain’s new bass player in May of 2022, Ludovico Cioffi.

With a new and re-energized lineup just about set, the band released their first new single “The Quest and the Curse”, along with announcing Diana Leah as the new lead singer of the band.
