Cleveland based Goth/Industrial band Lestat reformed in 2010 after a nine and a half year hiatus, and released a CD featuring all-new material in April of 2012 entitled "Arisen". Original members Evan Nave (formerly Razz), and Susan return, along with the addition of War on bass, a former member of PKS and Scott, former drummer for Disown.
Last seen in early 2000, Lestat parted ways for a various number of personal reasons. Lestat originally released three full length works, including “Theatre of the Vampires” (1990), “Grave Desires” (1991) and lastly “Vision of Sorrows” (1994), which was distributed through Metropolis Records. The song “?” from that release was also featured on the Cleopatra Records “Goth Box” compilation.
Since their reunion, Lestat has spent all of their energy writing the new release, as well as touring the country. They headlined Detroit, Columbus, Miami, New York, Chicago, and played a quick California tour, playing San Jose, Los Angeles, San Diego and Oakland. In 2012, they played the Age Of Decay festival in Jacksonville, Florida and had the honor of headlining the Anne Rice Vampire Lestat Fan Club’s Coven Ball in New Orleans, LA over Halloween weekend.
