Former Cradle Of Filth backing vocalist / keyboardist turned solo artist Lindsay Schoolctaft has checked in with the following announcement:
“This month on my Patreon, a Creative Talk with the one and only Coen Janssen of Epica.
We’ll be chatting about Coen’s creative process behind their latest album and livestream, and more about their new venture into the Epica Universe. And my Patrons get to submit questions!
I’m so thrilled to be chatting more about music and creativity with one of the symphonic greats.”
For their 20th band anniversary in 2022, Symphonic metal titans, Epica, have prepared a massive celebration from January to December, with plenty of surprises, new projects, and of course some new music too that will all be revealed throughout the year.
After recently relaunching their first three albums, the now-classic The Phantom Agony, Consign To Oblivion and The Score 2.0, via Nuclear Blast, with an extensive physical re-release on CD, vinyl, as well as strictly limited earbooks and boxsets later this year.
Epica have started the year with launching nothing less than, well, their own universe: “We truly feel like there’s a universe within the band, a world of our own, and we want to invite our lifeblood to be citizens – Epicans, if you will”, the band explains. “Think of it as a sequel to past Epica fan clubs like “The Fantom Agony” and “The French Crusade” but updated for the modern era; it’s more fan community than a club. Epica Universe will give Epicans insight into our lives, both personal and professional, through exclusive behind-the-scenes photos, podcasts, polls, vlogs, live hangouts and much more. There’s even a (super limited) tier that includes one-on-one video calls with a band member each month!”
Join the Epica Universe here. Get a first glimpse of what’s to expect via this trailer, presented by the whole band:
And what would a 20th anniversary be without a proper celebration live and in full color? The massive anniversary show is taking place at the same venue as Epica played their first show back in the day, supporting Anathema: the 013 in Tilburg, The Netherlands. Tickets are moving fast, so get yours here.
