Revamp Posts New "Wild Card" Trailer

Dutch metallers Revamp will release second album "Wild Card" on August 23rd via Nuclear Blast. Today, vocalist Floor Jansen offers you further information on the album’s cover artwork and the song writing process in the form of the third album trailer that can be watched below.

The opening track "The Anatomy Of A Nervous Breakdown: On The Sideline" will be released as a digital iTunes single on July 19th. The album will feature guest musicians Mark Jansen (Epica), Marcela Bovio & Johan van Stratum (Stream of Passion), Daniel de Jongh (Textures), and Devin Townsend. The band comments:

"The record lives up to its name 'Wild Card' in every single second! This album became the most aggressive album I’ve ever made and in the lyrics I tell a lot about my personal experiences of the last years. This resulted into some heavy stories and some openhearted ‘screams’ I needed out of my system. It matches the violence of the music in a great way, we wrote as a great team! But not one sentence or word can really cover the contents of this album. Its variety in all its ingredients makes it almost impossible. 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!” More...

ReVamp Announces New LP "Wild Card"

Dutch metal act ReVamp, featuring Ex-After Forever and live Nightwish vocalist Floor Jansen, has announced that the band's sophomore LP will be entitled "Wild Card." The album is set to drop on August 23, 2013 via Nuclear Blast Records. A trailer for the release, which includes the album's artwork can be viewed below.

Jansen commented on how the title of the record came to be: "This album became the most aggressive album I've ever made and in the lyrics I tell a lot about my personal experiences of the last years. This resulted into some heavy stories and some openhearted 'screams' I needed out of my system. It matches the violence of the music in a great way, we wrote as a great team! But not one sentence or word can really cover the contents of this album. Its variety in all its ingredients makes it almost impossible. 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!"

Jansen went on to explain about the album's concept, which can be taken literally in the album artwork: "I am the queen of hearts on it, who is a wild card herself. You see a 'nice' and a 'nasty' queen. The nasty one has a cracked lip, cuts in her face and a bleeding heart in her hand. The other queen looks nice even though queens of hearts never truly are... Again, what is it you're going to get? In that respect it visualizes the music, from aggressive and nasty to melodic and pretty. This theme has been important to me personally throughout my career and also in this album I played with it to the max. I used my voice in so many different ways now! The music invited me to do this, I am super proud of the amazing guitar riffs, the versatile and groovy but mega tight drums and the keyboard sounds and arrangements that bring something new to the table. We hope you like our wild card!" More...

Revamp Comments On New Album

Revamp's vocalist Floor has checked in with the following announcement about working on a new album:

"In the few years of ReVamp’s young existence the band endured many challenges and unexpected circumstances. Heavy winter storms with long periods of suffocating frost! Followed by sudden summer rains with wild streams of water that’s taking everything with it into unknown territory. A survival of the fittest! ReVamp came out stronger, more mature and with darker and more brutal music that tells the tale of this wild ride!

"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.

Anette Olzon Departs Nightwish

In the midst of the North American tour with Kamelot, Nightwish announced the mutual split with vocalist Anette Olzon due to "conflict in the direction" of the band. The band will proceed with the rest of the North American tour with ReVamp vocalist Floor Jansen on vocals. The joint announcement reads as follows:

"Another chapter of the NIGHTWISH story has ended today. NIGHTWISH and Anette Olzon have decided to part company, in mutual understanding, for the good of all parties involved.

"In recent times it has become increasingly obvious that the direction and the needs of the band were in conflict, and this has led to a division from which we cannot recover.

"NIGHTWISH has no intention of cancelling any upcoming shows, and as a result we have decided to bring in a substitute vocalist starting in Seattle 1.10.2012. Her name is Floor Jansen from the Netherlands (ex-AFTER FOREVER, REVAMP), and she has graciously stepped in to help us complete the ”Imaginaerum” world tour.

"We are all strongly committed to this journey, this vehicle of spirit, and we are sure that this will lead to a brighter future for everyone.

"We forever remain excited about the adventures to come, and we are extremely proud of the two beautiful albums and the wonderful shows we shared together.

"NIGHTWISH & Anette Olzon"

A couple of nights ago, Annette Olzon fell ill prior to the show in Denver and was briefly hospitalized. The show proceeded with Kamelot guest vocalists Elize Ryd (Amaranthe) and Alissa White-Gluz (The Agonist) filling in.

"ReVamp is proud to announce that we will proceed working on new songs for our second album with the professional help of Joost van de Broek!

"He will guide the songwriting process and use his expertise to make the second ReVamp album a killer! Joost worked with Floor in After Forever and on the first ReVamp album. Their cooperation has proofed itself. ReVamp started writing as a band before Floor's burn out already. Due to her sickness the process stopped. Now that her health is improving we decided its time to pick up the songwriting in a higher speed again. Guided by Joost we will search for a fresh metal sound, a ReVamp sound!!!

"When the album can be recorded and released is not sure yet. We will keep you updated about every step and like you; we can't wait to play you some new stuff!!!"
