ReVamp - Floor Jansen Is Suffering From Burn-Out


Ex-After Forever/ReVamp frontwoman Floor Jansen is suffering from a burn-out.

She recently released the following update: "For a few months now my health has not been good... I suffer from a burn-out. It took me a while to accept this fact, it was and is hard to be forced to take it easy and stop doing my work.

The shows booked for ReVamp are and have been for the last month my only activity and even that costs me more energy than I have. This burn-out doesn't mean I do not love my work! It's a sign of my system that I worked too hard for too long. I now have to be extremely careful with the amount of activities because my condition is poor.

On our tour in Latin America I will only be able to do the shows. I am sorry to say that I cannot attend to any other meetings or signing sessions. Also the social media such as Facebook and Twitter has been a bit quiet and will remain silent for a while until I am fully recovered.

I hope to be back on my feet soon and ask you for your sympathy. Music and the amazing support of you all have always energized me and I am sure this will pull me through this difficult period in my life again!"

Shame to hear this. Not sure if it could've been affecting her back in March, when ReVamp were touring the UK with Epica, but if it did, it certainly didn't show when I saw them in Sheffield. Her performance was amazing and included signing with Simone Simons for Epica's 'Quietus' as part of the encore. No doubt she did this and similar things at many other shows too.

Hope she gets the rest she needs!

I could understand burnout in this business. One must do virtually the same thing every night. Same songs, same lyrics, same after show activites, etc. Just the repetition alone probably broke her. Oh well, I wish the best for her!

Hahahah, burn out
She should try working in a boring dead-end job for a few months before claiming to be burnt-out.

Her and Sander Gommens said the same thing. Both within a couple of months of me seeing them live. Am I that much hard work?

Yeah, you're totally right. Not to mention singers always have to look great and do their best on stage.

@jupitreas: I disagree here. The life of a singer/musician could be extremely exhausting, especially during long tours.

The World Health Organisation does list it in its International Statistical Classification of Diseases (ICD) under the number Z73.0. Probably mental health is called mental health for a reason.

Oh, the ignorance is appalling here. Just because she didn't break her leg or have some outwardly visible illness doesn't mean she doesn't need medical attention and to take care of her health.

Only people who have done what she does should be able to judge. Complainers, sorry about your dead end jobs, that's your problem to deal with. Sucks to be you

Floor is amazing. However much she has to give us is enough.

I've suffered burn-out myself, so I feel for her. It's a legit medical condition that should be diagnosed and treated like everything else. I'm glad she's taking the proper procedures.

I know touring is tough, it does take its toll, being with the same bunch of people for a long time, playing the same songs over and over again. It can get monotonous and boring, but its still quite funny
@ Marcus, let me know if it works, I might try it out as well

First Sander and then Floor. Dang, burnouts must suck. I think I've felt burned out before, but probably on a small-scale, more temporary basis. I don't know what her life is life (or Sander's for that matter), but I hope she gets better soon. I have high respect for them as people and musicians.
