The complete list of opening bands for this year’s ‘Rock In India’ festival is not yet out, but we do know for sure that Kryptos is one among them. In a Headbangers India exclusive interview, we spoke to the band about this. Vocalist Nolan Lewis said, “It’s pretty unreal. We’ve been die hard Maiden fans since we were kids. Some of us have been fans for almost 20 years so this gig is going to be something really special for us. Hopefully everything should take place without a hitch.” Touchwood, now!The band is still not very sure about what they will be playing and for how long, but we presume it should be for atleast half an hour to forty minutes. “We are going to give it our all and have a blast on stage and take the crowd along for the ride”, they’ve said.
As for those of you who signed the petition that was circulating to get Kryptos to open, we cant say for sure how big a role it played in their final selection. However, you’ve got what you wanted. And yes, the band really appreciates the support.
Apart from Kryptos, there may also be a few bands from the UK who will play before the biggies on stage, and Lauren Harris is with Maiden again. Keep checking Headbangers.in for updates. We bring metal to you as and when it happens.
