Mayan - New Album Next Year, Floor Jansen As Guest

Dutch band Mayan has recently entered the studio to record the successor to their debut Quarterpast (2011), which is yet untitled, along with producer Joost van der Broek (ReVamp, Stream Of Passion). The concept for the record concerns the current state of the world which is going totally insane. Is it now? For example, "the explosive situation in Syria, governments who constantly accuse each other of lying, spying and using tricks to revoke their own population". The album will feature 10 or 11 tracks and is set for release in January 2014 via Nuclear Blast. As a special guest, Floor Jansen, vocalist of both ReVamp and Nightwish, will contribute with her voice.

Vocalist Mark Jansen on the upcoming output: "I am very happy with the songs, the first album was one big (cool!) experiment but I have the feeling that the new material is more coherent and in balance. The philosophy of Mayan is to let things happen intuitively and be totally open minded for each other's ideas. This resulted in music that I can't stop listening to myself!"

The current incarnation of Mayan sees vocalist Henning Basse and Italian opera talent Laura Macri, who were guests on the previous record, as full time members.
