ReVamp frontwoman and currently Nightwish touring vocalist Floor Jansen has offered up some insight into the lyrical context that comprises ReVamp’s new Wild Card. The album is due out 26th August. The videos can be viewed below.

Regarding the new album’s lead-off track, Anatomy Of A Nervous Breakdown: On The SidelineFloor shares:

Three songs are connected to this [Anatomy Of A Nervous Breakdown] theme about the burn-out time that I had. I hope that my words make sense to other people who’ve been through something similar or even in completely different situations.  For me it’s good to get rid of certain demons, but it’s not a pure selfish act. I always hope other people can relate to it in a way that fits to their lives.  On The Sideline’is literally about standing on the sideline of my life.  That’s how it felt when I was sick. Everything went on, and I didn’t, and I was just looking at it.  And it also gave me the time to reflect on how things had been. Even though it was scary, I felt blessed with what happened . . . That’s also why the last sentence in the lyric says, ‘It made me so humble / I’ll stay a little while longer.’

Nightwish set to capture upcoming Wacken performance for DVD release

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , on 31st July 2013 by Nico Solheim-Davidson

Nightwish recently reached triple platinum status in Finland for their album Imaginaerum which is regarded as the band’s pinnacle masterpiece. They have also reached gold status with the album in several other European countries. The band also released their highly successful fantasy motion picture, Imaginaerum by Nightwish and have toured all around the globe in support of both these releases. The Finnish metal legends are now approaching what is to be the end of their album cycle with the last three shows in support of Imaginaerum closing in soon. So, to celebrate the grand finale of Imaginaerum, Nightwish will be recording their ENTIRE show at this year’s Wacken Open Air – The world’s biggest metal festival – for a Blu-Ray/DVD release. The band’s mastermind and keyboardist, Tuomas comments:

The time has come soon to wrap up the magical & memorable one-and-a-half year Imaginaerum World Tour 2012-2013! We still have three shows left, one of them being at the legendary Wacken Open Air Metal Festival on the 3rd of August. This show will be something extra special, since it will be released later this year on DvD/Blu-ray, together with a massive Imaginaerum World Tour 2012-2013 documentary. Our darling flying Dutchwoman, Floor Jansen (ReVamp/ex-After Forever), has been nothing but incredible during her time in Nightwish on this tour, so this is a perfect opportunity to immortalize the current vibe of the band on film!

More info soon to be revealed! Also, be sure to check out Floor‘s other project, ReVamp, with new record Wild Card set for release on 26th August 2013.
