I love this band for almost 10 years and I always loved their music, their sound, the way all the members work inside of each project they are involved and last but definitely not least: Sharon’s amazing voice.
But probably what I love the most about this band is the fact they never stop for a second: I mean, in 2011 they released “The Unforgiving“, a cool concept album based on Sinèad’s character, one of The Unforgiving, helped by the mysterious Mother Maiden, the leader of this particular group which has a second chance after the death and punish the evil people.
The band was so really into this project that first they thought to create also a movie (something Tuomas Holopainen from Nightwish did for “Imaginaerum“) than they picked the choice to create a comic book based on this album.
And just in occasion of the previous era I had the pleasure to see the band live in concert, in Milan for the very first time. It was simply EPIC!
Now after two years of silence, well… the word silence in this case isn’t the right one, since they toured for the whole globe with “The Unforgiving Tour“, gladed their homecountry with an amazing acoustic tour called “Sanctuary” and rocked on stage with “Elements” last year in occasion of the 15th anniversary of the band + worked on awesome covers picked by fans and last but definitely not least performed in several festivals and worked on the new album too that will be released this Fall.
The craziest fact is that there already are some dates for their new worldwide tour that will start next January in sale for a while.
And…. yesterday the band revealed the name of their new upcoming single: “Paradise (What About Us?) and posted a lyric video on their YouTube page.
I already fell in love with the lyrics and I seriously can’t wait to see the new single and especially watching the music video + I won’t miss them in concert!
