ReVamp - New Album Update, Due Out In September

ReVamp's new album release date had been postponed to the fall of 2013 after singer Floor Jansen started touring with Nightwish and the band has now announced a September release date via Nuclear Blast for their yet untitled follow-up to their debut album ReVamp.

New album release dates:

  • September 6: Europe
  • Sepember 9: UK
  • September 12: Japan
  • September 17: US

    Singer Floor Jansen issued this message: "Never before in my career I faced a situation like the one we were in with this album. It was a huge challenge because of several reasons. My sickness caused a major break between the first album and tours plus the writing of the first ideas for the second album and the actual finalization of those songs and the album. And right at the moment we started to pick everything back up after I was sick I joined Nightwish. Like a winter and a summer storm, they bring unexpected things, some nasty ones and some amazingly wonderful!

    Also the recording of this album was unlike any I did before because I was on tour with Nightwish most of the time. Guided by Joost van den Broek (ex-After Forever, songwriter first ReVamp album) the talented musicians of ReVamp recorded all the instruments and when I came back to The Netherlands I stepped into the studio to find a rough diamond. A shiny dark crystal: ready for my vocals. That was magical! The singing went smoother than ever before. The lyrics are like a roadmap through our storms and through my personal detours and horrors."

    Floor adds: "Nuclear Blast knows about storms and their metal heart beats like ours. I am very exited they will release this album! The team is so good and with such great people I have no doubts our cooperation will again be fantastic."

    Just hope it has a bit more life to it than the first one.

    Expected to see her named as new Nightwish vocalist, so didn't expect this album to ever come out.
    Just because you believe in your strong morals it doesn't mean they are correct

    I thought she would be fully dedicated to Nightwish... although it make sense she wants to keep ReVamp as a backup -Toumas is very unpredictable.
