Symphonic metallers Nightwish have confirmed that Floor Jansen, formerly of After Forever, is to be the bands full time lead singer.
Jansen had this to say; ‘Words cannot describe what I feel. This 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 dream… and this is it!’.
The band themselves commented; ‘Originally 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 is a perfect matching piece to our puzzle. We are really grateful of the bond that has grown between all of us.’
Jansen replaces Anette Olzon, who left the band last year.
