Former AFTER FOREVER singer Floor Jansen performed with the RED LIMO STRING QUARTET on the Dutch TV program "Podium" on Sunday, August 30. Video footage of her appearance can now be viewed below.

As previously reported, Jansen also performed with the RED LIMO STRING QUARTET on August 9, 2009 at the Summer Darkness festival in Utrecht, Holland.

Commented Jansen: "Last year we did a similar show, and after many positive reactions, we play[ed] AFTER FOREVER songs again in this special form. Joost van de Broek (AFTER FOREVER keyboardist) made arrangements for this string quartet."

In February 2009, the AFTER FOREVER members announced their decision to go their separate ways, stating, "The break we took in 2008 made us appreciate all the more what we'd experienced. Now more than ever, we can look back on so many fantastic moments, something we never would have expected to be part of when we started the band all those years ago. However, that break also made us aware of the fact that we can only continue AFTER FOREVER with the energy, the full 110%, that we have always put into it and we've noticed lately that there is something missing. We have always been musicians who create music with lots of passion, and during the break we built up our own lives again and have been musically active and experimenting in several genres.

"Although AFTER FOREVER is very special to us, we feel that we have reached the point where we need to explore the world of music in each of our own different ways. Thus, we've decided to quit while we're ahead. We are sincerely proud of every CD; each album represents a unique period, and all comes together in our last album, 'After Forever', which made all of our dreams possible. We hope AFTER FOREVER will continue to be a source of inspiration for new bands and musicians alike so that our music can live on."
