Nightwish’s Tuomas On Next Nightwish Singer: “Floor Is Top Of The List”
It looks like Nightwish mainman Tuomas Holopainen agrees with the general consensus amongst Nightwish fans that Floor Jansen should get the singer gig full-time – even if he’s not willing to officially confirm it, yet.
“The thing is that we haven’t really thought about it in a concrete way, because there is no need to,” he tells FestivalBlog. “It’s been such a mess once again, I feel I need a month or two just to not think about the vocal issue at all. Then by the end of this year, we have to make some decisions. But everyone realises that she is on top of the list, naturally. But I don’t want to do anything official, I don’t want to make this decision just yet.”
Floor stood in with the band following the shocking departure of Anette Olzon last year, but has not yet officially joined the band full-time, instead continuing with her day job, ReVamp. Their new album lands later this year via Nuclear Blast. Meanwhile, Tuomas is busy working on a project based on Scrooge McDuck. No, seriously.
