Kiske/Somerville is a melodic rock/heavy metal duet project, put together in late 2009 by Serafino Perugino (president of the Italian record label Frontiers Records). The project finds vocalist Michael Kiske (ex-Helloween, Unisonic, Place Vendome) collaborating with American singer Amanda Somerville (Aina, HDK).

The project released the debut album Kiske/Somerville on September 24, 2010 in Europe and on October 12, 2010 in the USA.

The musical backing and the songwriting for the debut album were supplied by musicians Mat Sinner (Primal Fear, Sinner), Magnus Karlsson (Primal Fear), Sander Gommans (After Forever), Jimmy Kresic (Voodoo Circle) and Martin Schmidt.[1][2]

In October 2013 Amanda Somerville confirmed that a second Kiske/Somerville album is planned for 2015.[3]
