your online source for all things Simone

The last show of 2018 took place yesterday in Czech Republic. It seems Simone was bored in the plane home and she decided to have a mini Q&A on Instastories !

When asked if the band would one day play a concert with the Metropole Orkest, she answered “maybe”. We also learnt that she won’t go back to wearing corsets, that Vincent can draw and paint very well, that she wishes she could play In All Conscience, Mirage of Verity and Tides of Time more often on stage, that she would never get sick of singing Unchain Utopia and that her favorite Dutch city is Amsterdam.

You can find all the other questions and her answers here in the press section.

EDIT : I translated the questions/answers from Dutch to English. I don’t speak Dutch very well so I hope it’s correct !

Last year, Epica won a competition organized by The Metropole Orkest, a world-renowned Dutch orchestra, and recorded a rendition of Beyond the Matrix with them, featuring Arjen Lucassen from Ayreon.

The song will be released as a limited-edition vinyl and digital download on October 26th. Visit the official webshop to pre-order the vinyl and bundles.
