NIGHTWISH is currently on the road in North America with special guests SABATON, a Swedish heavy metal band that gives us a history lesson in their songs on war and historical battles, and Duthc female-fronted metallers DELAIN.
The VIP package for the Vancouver show — which is now sold out — included a meet-and-greet with the band, signed poster, show program and a general admission seat in the orchestra section (floor).
NIGHTWISH‘s new album, “Endless Forms Most Beautiful”, was made available on March 27 in Europe and March 31 in the U.S. via Nuclear Blast.
The “Élan” four-track single, which arrived on February 13, features the album version of the title cut, a radio edit and an alternate version of “Élan”, as well as the non-album bonus track “Sagan”.
The cover artwork for “Endless Forms Most Beautiful” was created by the band’s longtime collaborator Toxic Angel. Famed evolutionary biologist and atheist writer/leader Richard Dawkins appears as a guest on the effort.
Longtime NIGHTWISH drummer Jukka Nevalainen sat out the recording sessions for“Endless Forms Most Beautiful” due to health issues. He has since been replaced by Kai Hahto (WINTERSUN, SWALLOW THE SUN, TREES OF ETERNITY).
Singer Floor Jansen, who officially joined the band in 2013, made her live debut as the frontwoman of NIGHTWISH on October 1, 2012 at Showbox Sodo in Seattle, Washington.
