Once again, Nightwish have split from their second lead vocalist, Anette Olzon. They assure fans that no dates will be cancelled however, as they have already found a temporary (at least for now) singer for the upcoming shows – former After Forever and current ReVamp singer, Floor Jansen.
Here is a statement recently issued by the band:
Another chapter of the Nightwish story has ended today. Nightwish and Anette Olzon have decided to part company, in mutual understanding, for the good of all parties involved.
In recent times it has become increasingly obvious that the direction and the needs of the band were in conflict, and this has led to a division from which we cannot recover.
We forever remain excited about the adventures to come, and we are extremely proud of the two beautiful albums and the wonderful shows we shared together.
