Liv Kristine (ex-Leaves’ Eyes/ex-Theatre of Tragedy) has found a new home by joining Midnattsol, as the group’s second vocalist. The symphonic folk metal outfit features Kristine’s younger sister, Carmen Elise Espenaes. Initially, the band planned for her appear on their follow-up to 2011’s The Metamorphosis Melody album as a special guest, and instead, they gave her a permanent role.
The group announced the following:
like we promised, here are the news for you:
LIV KRISTINE IS NOW AN OFFICAL SECOND SINGER IN MIDNATTSOL!!
Some time ago we discussed with Liv that she would support us on our upcoming album as a special guest. Working together, we found out that not only the result is awesome – we also have a lot of fun together. The logical consequence was that we pick up Liv as a permanent member of the band. So she is now the official second singer in Midnattsol.
We have already recorded Liv as second voice on some songs for the next album. Liv will also have her own parts in some songs, so these songs will be more like a duett of the two sisters. We think the result will blow you away.
As Liv is now a permanent band member we plan to play upcoming concerts together with her.
We are very happy and it means a lot to us to have auch an amazing singer and fantastic person in our Midnattsol family.”
