As of 2008 Delain is a real band. Phillips is also involved in the production of the second album April Rain (March 2009) featuring guests like Marko Hielata and cellist Maria Ahn (Ahn Trio). On 31 October 2009 plays a special show in a church in the city of Zwolle. During Delain: November Rain (The Final Edition) several guests join the band, including bassist/singer Marco Hietala from Nightwish. After a show in Birmingham on 7 November 2009, guitarist Ronald Landa leaves the band. He is replaced by Ewout Pieters (Mythlorian). In November Delain tours in fifteen European countries as support act for Finnish band Sonata Arctica. The tour kicks off in Prague and ends on 15 December in Stockholm, Sweden. Bassist Rob van der Loo plays with the band during the Dutch shows, for the remainder of the tour he is temporary replaced by Roel Vink (ex-Sun Caged).
