Three women who’ve established themselves as metal songstresses — Kari Rueslåtten of The 3rd and The Mortal (who wrote a guest column for us not that long ago), The Gathering’s Anneke van Giersbergen and Liv Kristine Espenaes Krull of Leaves’ Eyes and Theatre of Tragedy — will join forces for “The Sirens” tour this fall.
The seeds for “The Sirens” were planted when Anneke approached Kari in early 2013 with the proposal of doing a duet for her Drive album (released in 2013).
The song they worked on didn’t make the final cut as it didn’t fit the album, but the two remained in touch.
Then, last summer, Anneke and Liv had a chance meeting at the Masters Of Rock festival in the Czech Republic, and “The Sirens” concept was born.
“We had a few minutes only to talk in between our gigs,” Liv recalls, “but we agreed that we really should get together and tour. We both had to smile then, thinking that we were, with Kari, the ‘originals’ within our scene. Moreover, all three of us being mothers and still highly busy in music and art. Anneke told me that she had just talked to Kari, and that was the ‘go’ for ‘The Sirens.’”
