TEMPERANCE released their new acoustic EP, "Melodies Of Green And Blue", last Friday, February 19th, on Napalm Records! The new single, "Paint The World", is one of six acoustic interpretations of their album, Viridian, found on the band's new melodic and symphonic metal EP. After any years touring with giants like Nightwish, Luca Turilli's from Rhapsody and Tarja, TEMPERANCE have released "Melodies Of Green And Blue" - a gift for their fans!

In this acoustic version, musical production reaches passionate, dense and captivating vocal harmonies. With “Paint The World”, TEMPERANCE attend a kind invitation to a modest musical environment, offering glorious melodies and rich chords for one to get lost in an exceedingly pleasant way!

Singer Michele Guaitoli about "Paint The World":

"Together with the emotion of going acoustic, we also had the chance to write some brand new tracks for this acoustic EP, moving away from the original style of the band. Even though we released tracks like "Gaia" or "Scent of Dye" before, "Paint The World" is a semi-acoustic ballad that would have been hard to include in any other TEMPERANCE’s record as it too much in between the acoustic world and the electric world. Like many other times in TEMPERANCE’s history, we immediately took advantage of this possibility that Napalm gave us, to experiment with something different and new. I believe in this song as you can clearly feel the influences of our youth, the alternative rock of the early 2000s, and the beginning of our musical dreams: the dreams of a bunch of kids who wanted to paint their own picture of this world."

Furthermore, Michele Guaitoli comments on the "Melodies Of Green And Blue" EP:

"We’ve been talking about recording some acoustic versions of our tracks for a long time, as we all love the intimate and emotional feeling that this particular style can offer to any tracks. If you think of it, this is how most of our songs are composed: it’s Marco on his guitar or me on the piano. Everything for us begins in acoustic before going metal. This EP is a little dream come true, as we can finally show the heart of our music in its purest version."
