Interview by Tarja Virmakari
Things couldn’t be better for Floor Jansen: Since she joined NIGHTWISH in September 2012 the Dutch power woman has been touring the world with the Finnish symphonic metallers, if only as a stand-in singer to date – and now she’s ready with the furious sophomore release of her own band REVAMP! In a couple of weeks, on August 23, three years of agonizing waiting time for record number two will finally come to an end – that haven’t only demanded a great deal of REVAMP’s fans, as Floor admits: “Never before in my career had 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.”
The new REVAMP effort “Wild Card” will come out via Nuclear Blast, on August 23.
Recently Tarja Virmakari had a nice chat with Floor Jansen, she spoke widely about ReVamp’s upcoming album “Wild Card”, but she talked also about the hard times she had when recovering from her burn out, but that she has learned a huge lesson through it. Today she’s stronger and knows how to take life’s challenges, and to make the best out of them. She’s very satisfied with this new album, and commented: “A wild card is an unpredictable and unforeseeable factor. You don’t know what you’re getting, or when. That’s this album! It’s 100% ReVamp and it’s your wild card!”
