Nightwish promise fans ‘something special’ in 2018

Singer Floor Jansen says Nightwish will be back in 2018 with something ‘fans will really like’

Nightwish will return to action in 2018 with “something special” for fans, according to singer Floor Jansen.

The band are taking a year off following the release and touring cycle in support of their eighth album Endless Forms Most Beautiful, with Jansen also revealing in September that she was four months pregnant.

But she reports that Nightwish fans will be rewarded for their patience once the band reconvene in 2018.

She tells Metal Wani: “Well, we'll be back in 2018. We haven't said anything about a record or what we're going to do. We have been keeping it a secret on purpose, because it's something special – something that I really think Nightwish fans will really like.

“But for now, we're taking a break from the whole thing – not because it wasn't good, but maybe because it was good. It's good to reflect on life and take a step back and sit and relax and do something else. And we'll be back with a vengeance in 2018.”

While nothing will be heard from the Nightwish camp throughout 2017, Jansen will appear onstage with Ayreon for two shows in the Netherlands next year.

The performances will be held at the 013 venue in Tilburg on September 15 and 16, 2017, and will see Arjen Lucassen also joined by a raft of guests for the shows, which are being billed as the Ayreon Universe experience.

Nightwish will reveal live package Vehicle Of Spirit on December 9 in Europe, with a North American release to follow in January.
