NIGHTWISH‘s forthcoming album ‘Endless Forms Most Beautiful’ will be the band’s first studio album to feature Dutch vocalist Floor Jansen and is set for release on 30th March 2015 via Nuclear Blast.
NIGHTWISH main man Tuomas Holopainen comments: “The writing process was extremely smooth and relatively easy. I had more fun than ever during the recordings. The Röskö summer camp was a lot of fun. The days were filled with friendship, hope and music. Obviously the sad thing was that Jukka had to step aside – but everything else has been really good.”
Bassist Marco Hietala adds: “The songs did grow during the process. We started out with Tuomas’ computer demos and my own demos. We put them together and started building the songs around those basic blocks. They really grew in depth and character along the way.”
Famed evolutionary biologist and atheist writer Richard Dawkins will appear as a guest on the band’s eighth studio album.
