On blisteringly hot Friday night July 19th, Amaranthe and Kobra and the Lotus current U.S. tour stopped in at The Middle East in Cambridge, Ma. I was greeted by lead vocalist Jake, who I had gotten to know a few years ago at the ProgPower USA Festival in Atlanta, GA. During the opening bands set, the power went out causing the opener to cut their set short. So here I was with Elize Ryd in Amaranthe’s dressing room waiting for power to be restored. Luckily the lights stayed on so after talking for a while, we were both bored and dying from the heat, so to pass the time, I asked Elize if she wanted to do a short interview for Lady Obscure Music Magazine, to which she happily agreed! So what you will be viewing is a rough, unplanned, and off the cuff interview with lousy sound quality, but Honey Badger always takes advantage of a good situation. It was a nice chance to talk to Elize and ask a few questions about the current tour, new album The NeXus, and the bands U.S. debut last year at ProgPower USA. Enjoy!
