Epica, the symphonic metal band from the Netherlands, toured Australia from March 18 to March 20, 2016. On their road, the Huffington Post Australia caught them and interviewed Simone Simons, the female front singer, in a video.
She talks about being a woman in a heavy metal band composed of five men, but she also comes back on her pregnancy and life as a mother. Simone gave birth to a son in October 2013. In the video, she explains how she combines being a mother and touring the world with the band Epica.
