Nightwish have confirmed long-held suspicions that former After Forever and current ReVamp singer, Floor Jansen, is to become the band’s official full-time singer.
â€œWords cannot describe what I feel,â€ says Floor, who will also be joined by Troy Donockley. â€œThis union is beyond everything, and I cannot tell you how wonderful it is to continue this amazing journey with my new brothers! Once I had a dreamâ€¦ and this is it!â€
â€œOriginally we were going to wait until 2014 to make a decision about the future lineup of the band, but the past year has clearly shown us that Floor and Troy are perfect matching pieces to our puzzle,â€ say the band in a statement. â€œWe are really grateful of the bond that has grown between all of us. We love you, guys.â€
Floor replaces Anette Olzon, who made a surprising departure from the band last year.
