With the release of City of Heroes, the new album from Kiske/Somerville, I was lucky enough to get the opportunity to interview Amanda Somerville. My very laid back interview style is perhaps a bit at odds with her incredibly bubbly and upbeat personality but it turned out well in the end. I maybe just need to perk myself up a bit more next time…ha :)
Amanda of course has recorded and toured with some of the biggest names in metal such as: Avantasia, Edguy, After Forever, Epica, Luca Turilli, Mob Rules, Hollow Haze, Kamelot, and many more.
During our interview we cover the new Kiske/Somerville collaboration, remote recording, the “Rock meets Classic” tour, her contribution on the new Hollow Haze album, her appearance on the singing talent show “Keep your light shining”, and what her plans are for the future.
City of Heroes is available from Frontiers Music and the release dates are:
EU: April 17th 2015
US: April 21st 2015
