Rustyn Rose from the Metalholic website recently checked in with Upon Wings frontwoman Anne Autumn Erickson to chat about the band’s upcoming EP, “Afterlife,” and more. The two talked in depth about the recording process behind “Afterlife,” including recording at Groovemaster Studios in Chicago, a famed recording studio owned and operated by Johnny K, the latter who has worked with band such as Disturbed, 3 Doors Down, Sevendust and Art of Dying.
Rose also chatted with Anne Autumn about the genesis of Upon Wings and how the group came together. Check out the full interview here, and here’s an excerpt from the feature:
Erickson’s haunting and emotive mezzo-soprano voice channels the spirit of Liv Kristine (Leaves’ Eyes), Tarja Turunen (ex-Nightwish) and Amy Lee (Evanescence). Her songwriting channels similar gothic and and ambient moods. Metalholic caught up with Erickson who was enjoying her spotlight on Sirius Octane’s “Women Rock” week. The lead off title single from her new EP “Afterlife” is receiving solid play on Sirius and numerous other radio outlets.
Many thanks to Rose for taking the time to chat with Anne Autumn. “Afterlife” is out March 5 via Sword of the Spirit Records LLC, and it’s currently available for pre-order here.
