There was an official announcement this month that the band Leaves’ Eyes and singer Liv Kristine had split. The message suggested that the split was mutually agreed and represented what all parties wanted. However, since that message went out there have been a lot of comments on social media and Liv Kristine herself seems to be unhappy with the split. The band had touring commitments to meet that Liv was apparently unable to meet, so the band are continuing their tour with a new vocalist in Elina Siirala (from EnkElination).
I quite like what I have heard from Leaves’ Eyes album King of Kings. Shame Liv has gone but life must go on I guess. At least she has solo stuff she does and has done whilst in the band. Apparently, now the lawyers are involved – that’s always a bad sign.
