NIGHTWISH Singer FLOOR JANSEN Says 'There Will Be A Bright Future For REVAMP'

October 28, 2013

NIGHTWISH and REVAMP singer Floor Jansen has posted the following message on her official blog:

"The news about [me joining] NIGHTWISH [as an official member] got a lot of happy and supportive reactions. Thank you for that! But it also raised questions about the future of REVAMP.

"The coming month, REVAMP will tour Europe [with KAMELOT] and in 2014 we will work on more tours, which we can hopefully announce soon

"The summer of 2014 will be an exciting and full one, with REVAMP doing festivals and NIGHTWISH rehearsals and recordings.

"The new NIGHTWISH album will probably come out in 2015 and we will rock the world in 2015 and 2016. This doesn't mean REVAMP stops existing, however! It cannot be a full-time band, but a band for sure that can still make albums and play shows. This with its own, typical super-heavy and dark music that I am so fond and proud of.

"So there will be a bright future for REVAMP.

"I welcome you to celebrate this future at one of our shows!

"Hope to see you soon!!!"

REVAMP's second album, "Wild Card", was released in Europe on August 23 via Nuclear Blast Records. The CD was recorded at SandLane Studio in Rijen, The Netherlands with Joost van den Broek (ex-AFTER FOREVER) and features guest choir parts by Marcela Bovio (STREAM OF PASSION) and Daniƫl de Jongh (TEXTURES). The effort features additional guest appearances by Mark Jansen (EPICA),Johan van Stratum (STREAM OF PASSION) and Devin Townsend.

The opening track, "The Anatomy Of A Nervous Breakdown: On The Sideline", was released as a digital iTunes single on July 19.

REVAMP recently announced the addition of bassist Henk Vonk to the group's ranks. He replaces Jaap Melman, who left REVAMP before the band entered the studio to begin recording its second album. The CD was eventually completed with the help of STREAM OF PASSION bassist Johan van Stratum, who filled in on short notice and "did an amazing job to record and edit the bass parts," according to a press release.
