The Finns have received over 2,000 demos, all hoping to win the vocalist position in the band.

A posting on the band's official site reads:

"The auditions for the new vocalist have ended, with more than 2,000 demos sent to us (yesterday, Jan. 15, we received 120 demos!). A big thanks to everybody! So please don't send anymore demos, since now we need to concentrate on finishing the album recordings.

"The new vocalist will be announced at the end of May, together with the release of a new single."

The band are looking to replace former vocalist Tarja Turunen since her ousting last year.
