Dutch female-fronted progressive metallers ALERION have announced the addition of singer Laura ten Hoedt to the group’s ranks.
Commented the band: “Laura joined the band in December and has since worked with us on our existing songs, as well as on some new material.
“Laura is probably best known as singer-songwriter LADYLAU. Although less in the public view, she has also been active in several projects in progressive rock and metal. These include the German projects VOXAGER and ESCAPEDIA as well as live performances with DIAL and in AYREON tribute projects.
“Starting in April we will do some shows so you will all be able to hear Laura sing yourselves. Two gigs and a live radio performance have been scheduled so far, as well as a small acoustic performance to be recorded and aired on Radio Rijnmond.”
ALERION‘s most recent two-song promotional CD, “Turn Of Fate”, was released in 2009.
