Hi Rick, about a year and a half ago, your most recent long player ‘You Are Next’ saw the light of day. It gained good reviews from press and fans from all over the globe. My colleague Sjak Roks did an extensive interview with you and singer Rop van Haren back then. What happened since the release of the ‘You Are Next’ album?
Yes, I remember the interview and review. That was awesome to have so much positive feedback, not only by Lords Of Metal, but as you said the review and positive response came from everywhere. We mainly spent time promoting ‘You Are Next’ by interviews, radio promotion and doing a lot of live shows here in the Netherlands but also many abroad. We toured Greece, played Portugal next to the obvious countries like Germany and Belgium on a frequent base. Next to headlining shows and festivals we had some awesome support opportunities with Saxon, Trivium, Raven, Vicious Rumors and Manilla Road for example We released the album also in Japan on Edge Trax were it was received very well too, so I think you can say ‘You Are Next’ opened many and new doors for the band.
