Trivia

“We asked [former band members to perform with Epica on stage] and they all said “yeah, that’s fun”. We are all on good terms with previous members of the band, and they are part of the past of Epica and if they had not been there with us on that day it would not be complete. It felt a little weird as for example our drummer left long time ago and I haven(t seen him since. Yves (Huts) was the latest one to leave and he has cut his hair so it was weird for him to do some head banging because his moves didn’t work with his short hair. It was a wonderful evening – we had so much fun and also was extra special because I was pregnant and it was still a secret back then and that was the extra special guest that we had.” – Simone Simons

“We [Floor Jansen and Simone] rehearsed the song at her house. I visited her when I was in the Netherlands. It was definitely fun, she is an amazing singer and we have performed many times together. We wanted to do something special and we would love to do more stuff together in the future.” – Simone Simons

“It all started with the notion that we wanted to do something special because of our 10th anniversary as a band. We always celebrated special occasions with Epica, so this was another good excuse to do something special. The idea was to come up with our most elaborate stage show to date in order to celebrate our 10th anniversary with our fans. We had a lot of things going on, so it took quite some time to actually get the whole Retrospect project off the ground.” – Coen Janssen
