Cleveland based Goth/Industrial band Lestat has reformed after a nine and a half year hiatus, and will be releasing a CD featuring all-new material in the coming year. Original members Evan Nave (formerly Razz), Susan and Timothy return, along with the addition of War, recently a member of PKS and Scott, former drummer for Disown.
Last seen in early 2000, Lestat parted ways for a various number of personal reasons. Since then, Evan Nave has performed with local metal band PKS, while Timothy performed most notably with UV and the Mercury Project. Lestat has released three full length works, including “Theatre of the Vampires” (1990), “Grave Desires” (1991) and lastly “Vision of Sorrows” (1994), which was distributed through Metropolis Records. The song “?” from that release was also featured on the Cleopatra Records “Goth Box” compilation.
Evan Nave will continue as vocalist, with Susan returning on guitar. Timothy is switching to keyboards and electronic percussion, and War will be a new addition to the band as their first bass guitarist. Scott will take over drumming duties, adding another new dimension to the band’s overall sound. Watch for new Lestat information at lestatmusic.com.
