REVAMP, the band led by former AFTER FOREVER and currentNIGHTWISH touring vocalist Floor Jansen, has entered the studio to begin recording its sophomore album for a fall 2013 release via Nuclear Blast Records. REVAMP states: “REVAMP started recording the drums for the second album! 33 mics will catch the drums from Matthias Landes. It will be great!!!”
An 11-minute video clip in which members of REVAMP answer fan-submitted questions about their forthcoming second album — filmed this past September — can be seen below.
REVAMP returned to the live stage in January at Metropool in Hengelo, The Netherlands as the support act for EPICA.
Video footage of REVAMP performing a brand new song, entitled “Sins”, during the concert can be seen below.
Jansen appeared at Carioca Club in São Paulo, Brazil in November 2011 as a special guest of MAYAN, the band featuring EPICA/ex-AFTER FOREVERguitarist/songwriter Mark Jansen alongside Jack Driessen (ex-AFTER FOREVER) and Frank Schiphorst. This marked his first live appearance since her burn-out last year, which forced her to put on hold all concert activities.
REVAMP‘s self-titled debut album was released in Europe on May 28, 2010 via Nuclear Blast Records.
