Floor Jansen To Stay With Nightwish
Nightwish have confirmed that Floor Jansen will stay on as their permanent singer, and touring member Troy Donockley has become a full member of the band too.
Jansen – who was brought in at short notice after the band split with Anette Olzon last year – says it’s a dream come true, after she was under no illusions that her stint with the band might be a short one.
But mainman Tuomas Holopainen, who’d previously insisted no decision would be taken until next year, says his experiences of working with the Revamp frontwoman changed his mind.
He reports: “The past year has clearly shown us that Floor and Troy are perfect matching pieces to our puzzle. We’re really grateful of the bond that has grown between all of us. We love you, guys.”
Jansen states: “Words cannot describe what I feel. This union is beyond everything, and I can’t tell you how wonderful it is to continue this amazing journey with my new brothers. Once I had a dream, and this is it!”
