Nightwish has issued a statement informing us that Nightwish and lead vocalist Anette Olson have decided to part ways in a mutual understanding and on good terms. The band cites irreconcilable differences in direction and ambitions.

The band is still full of positive energy, and they have stated that they are not going to cancel any of the scheduled shows on the Imaginaerum World Tour. Instead, substitute vocalist Floor Jansen (ex-After Forever, ReVamp) jumped into action already yesterday in Seatle (1.10.2012).

“We forever remain excited about the adventures to come, and we are extremely proud of the two beautiful albums and the wonderful shows we have shared.”
