I had the pleasure of sitting down with George from Serenity to discuss the band and the new album Lionheart, which is released on 27th October:

 

  1. What inspired the name of the band?

 

“It’s a bit of a short story. Our former keyboard was a big fan of the British band Arena, and they had a song called Serenity, and he liked the name of the song so we chose that.”

 

  1. Many of your songs are inspired by history, which period of history is your favourite and why?

 

“When I’m not singing, I’m an assistant history professor, and as a child I was into knights and castles, so that’s where most of the history influences come from. I’m fascinated with 15th and 16 century, the ending of the medieval period and the beginning of the modern era. As for historical figures Emperor Maximilian I and Leonardo Da Vinci are some of my favourite historical figures.”

 

  1. What themes are explored on your latest album and why?

“In our new album Lionheart, we wanted to tell the actual story of Richard the Lionheart and explore certain myths that have come up around him, like the Robin Hood myth. Personally, I don’t think it’s possible for them to have met, or that Robin Hood actually existed.”

  1. What plans do you have for the future?

 

“We’re releasing Lionheart on 27th October, and then embarking on a tour with Delain, finishing up with a show at the Koko in London. Then we’re moving out on our own headlining tour with our label mates.”
