HOW DID YOUR NAME ORIGINATE?
We actually just put a bunch of words on a whiteboard and put them together in different combinations. Ghost Iris just kind of stuck. We have since then adapted a meaning to it - it represents life and death, just as our music can be very melodic yet very heavy.
WHERE WAS YOUR FIRST GIG AND HOW MANY PEOPLE WERE THERE?
We supported Vildhjarta in Copenhagen in 2014. Probably around 200 people in attendance. Killer show. But we have learnt and grown a lot since then.
WHEN WAS YOUR LAST DAY OFF AND WHAT DID YOU DO WITH IT?
It was today. I took my dog for a long walk and I answered interviews!
WHAT IS SOMETHING - APART FROM YOUR PHONE OR WALLET - THAT HAS TO BE IN YOUR VICINITY AT ALL TIMES?
Keys and ear protection. My dad got tinitus from a Type O Negative show 20 years ago, so being a musician myself I am always very cautious about protecting my ears.
WHICH SONG BY ANOTHER ARTIST DO YOU WISH YOU'D WRITTEN?
People=Shit by Slipknot.
WHAT'S BEEN THE MOST SURREAL FAN MOMENT?
Fans telling us how our music has saved their lives one way or the other. Some have even told us stories about how our music has kept them from suicide. Fans getting tattoos that have something to do with our band is pretty surreal too.
