They are back. And, better than ever! After almost a decade hiatus, the Cleveland based Darkwave band Lestat has arisen!
Last seen in early 2000, Lestat parted ways for a various personal reasons. However, they resurged in 2010. Over the last few years, Lestat has been touring across the US to a diverse and devout fan base. They reformed with three original members, Evan Nave (formerly Razz), Susan and Timothy, and added two new members to the line-up: War on bass, a former member of PKS and Scott, former drummer for Disown.
Lestat have completed their “resurrection” andpresent a new album, aptly titled Arisen. Imagine stepping back a few decades to a dark club night, full of smoke and haunting melodies. The eighties electronica, floating melodies and dark guitars mixed with deep, mysterious vocals. Now, fuse the styles of various darker genres, poetic turmoil, and mature musical experimentation. The diversity of tracks and male/female vocals, plus a cover of Siouxsie and the Banshee’s classic “Red Light” will leave you breathless. The nostalgia will take you back, but the clarity will awaken your dark soul. Includes remix of "Midinght Toll" by Adrian Smith of Click Click.
