Within Temptation have released footage of the symphonic metal stars playing The Reckoning with Amy Lee of Evanescence.

The clip is taken from the Dutch band’s upcoming live album Worlds Collide Tour, Live In Amsterdam, out via Force Music Recordings on June 21.

The performance was recorded at the Ziggo Dome in Amsterdam on November 29, 2022, where Within Temptation co-headlined with Evanescence as part of the two bands’ Worlds Collide tour.

Watch the clip below.

Within Temptation released their latest album, Bleed Out, in October and put out a standalone single called A Fool’s Parade, featuring Ukrainian producer Alex Yarmak, last month.

The band will tour Europe to promote Bleed Out later this year. See the dates and get tickets below.

Last month, Evanescence announced a co-headlining tour of North America with Halestorm to take place in October. Get tickets via the band’s website.

Lee recently denied rumours that she was replacing the late Chester Bennington as part of a reunion of nu metal icons Linkin Park.

“No, it’s not true,” she said. “But that’s awesome. They should ask me about that. I don’t have a ton of free time, but I might do it part time.”

Linkin Park are reportedly reuniting for a world tour with a female singer in 2025.
