New LP "Wild Card" Announced By ReVamp

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!"

The band also recently started a kickstarter campaign to help with costs of an upcoming world tour supporting the release. Check out the perk packages and how you can contribute over at this location.
