Floor Jansen Floor's Blog
Here you'll find my lifeblog with photos, videos and more about me and myself.
In the few years of ReVamp’s young existence the band endured many challenges and unexpected circumstances. Heavy winter storms with long periods of suffocating frost! Followed by sudden summer rains with wild streams of water that’s taking everything with it into unknown territory. A survival of the fittest! ReVamp came out stronger, more mature and with darker and more brutal music that tells the tale of this wild ride!Singer Floor: “Never before in my career I faced a situation like the one we were in with this album. It was a huge challenge because of several reasons. My sickness caused a major break between the first album and tours plus... read more
Dear reader, not on the road this time! At home working on ReVamp's second album. After the tour with Nightwish in Australia and New Zealand we had nice holiday in Thailand. Revived and tanned like never before in January I returned home. I had to finish some last lyrics and vocal lines on songs, full focus immediately. I was 100% ready for the recordings that started 10 days after I came back home. Joost van de Broek did the recordings. I worked with him for years and I know we make a great team!!! Joost played keyboard and was songwriter in After Forever. He was... read more
Dear reader, It is January 2013. Summer here in Australia, winter back home in The Netherlands. In my home country it has been snowing and that means everything gets deranged immediately.

My French bulldog Obi needs to wear a coat because she has no fur on her cute little belly, I wear my summer dresses and put on sun crème on a daily base. I love touring :-) I have never been to Australia nor New Zealand before. I have never... read more
Dear reader, I left you a while ago on my way to Cusco. A city high up in the Peruvian Andes mountains. The altitude is vast there and climbing the stairs to my hotel room already made me running out of breath :-) We had some time off in the city but went to bed early because we would leave the hotel in the middle of the night to get to the train station. Breakfast at 03:15 at night...2 hours in a van and two more in the train. The train ride was beautiful! The track meandered along a wild river, trees and nature all... read more
Dear reader, The vast distances between the countries here in Latin America make us fly a lot and therefore it's not a coincidence I write the first words while sitting in an airplane. A miniature plane will take us from Lima to Cusco today. No shows the coming 2 days but some very special site-seeing! We have the honor to see Machu Picchu! Time becomes liquid when you travel a lot. It's been a little over a week ago I left home to go to the airport. From Amsterdam to London where I met with all the guys to fly to Mexico City together. 15... read more
