REVAMP, the band led by former AFTER FOREVER and current NIGHTWISH touring vocalist Floor Jansen, has released the following statement:
“Due to the changed situation in which singer Floor joined NIGHTWISH on their world tour and summer festivals, the band has decided to postpone the release.
“The new album deserves full attention, and with the schedule as it is today, it is not possible to do enough shows, tours and festivals.
“REVAMP wants to release the album in the fall of 2013. The exact date and more info about the possible tours will come as soon as possible. The recording of the album stays as scheduled and will start in December of this year.”
An 11-minute video clip in which members of REVAMP answer fan-submitted questions about their forthcoming second album — filmed this past September — can be seen below.
REVAMP returned to the live stage in January at Metropool in Hengelo, The Netherlands as the support act for EPICA.
Video footage of REVAMP performing a brand new song, entitled “Sins”, during the concert can be seen below.
Jansen appeared at Carioca Club in São Paulo, Brazil in November 2011 as a special guest of MAYAN, the band featuring EPICA/ex-AFTER FOREVER guitarist/songwriter Mark Jansen alongside Jack Driessen (ex-AFTER FOREVER) and Frank Schiphorst. This marked his first live appearance since her burn-out last year, which forced her to put on hold all concert activities.
REVAMP‘s self-titled debut album was released in Europe on May 28, 2010 via Nuclear Blast Records.
