NIGHTWISH Now Signed To Nuclear Blast On Both Sides Of The Atlantic

Monday, 4th August 2014

NIGHTWISH has signed a North American deal with Nuclear Blast Entertainment. NIGHTWISH has been signed to Nuclear Blast for the European territory since the release of Once in 2004.

The band’s as-yet-untitled eighth studio album will be the first to feature Dutch vocalist Floor Jansen (REVAMP, ex-AFTER FOREVER), who has toured with NIGHTWISH since October 2012.

Comments Nuclear Blast Entertainment president and A&R chief Monte Conner: “It was a pleasure to work with NIGHTWISH at my former label, but now in my new capacity at NBE, I will be more directly involved with the band than ever before.

“I would like to thank NIGHTWISH and their management for their continued faith in, and loyalty to, me.

“I am particularly excited at the prospect of hearing Floor Jansen’s debut studio recording with the band. Her performance on last year’s live release Showtime, Storytime completely blew me away and proved why she is the PERFECT singer for NIGHTWISH.”

NIGHTWISH’s longtime co-manager Ewo Pohjola of King Foo Entertainment adds: “Having Monte Conner now back with NIGHTWISH in North America makes us all really happy. And with Nuclear Blast, we have always felt at home since Day One.”
