NIGHTWISH is planning to undetake a third U.S. tour in support of its new album, "Dark Passion Play", beginning at the end of August 2008 and running through the end of September.

The band will release a "platinum" edition of its latest album, "Dark Passion Play" (release date to be confirmed), which will include all 13 songs from the original version plus five bonus tracks:

01. Erämaan Viimeinen (new track)
02. The Escapist (new track)
03. Meadows of Heaven (orchestral version)
04. The Poet and the Pendulum (demo)

NIGHTWISH has just released a Finland-only single, "Erämaan Viimeinen" (Last of the Wilds). "Erämaan Viimeinen" is the instrumental "Last of the Wilds" off "Dark Passion Play", but with Finnish lyrics, courtesy of Jonsu from the all-girl pop/rock band INDICA, who will open for NIGHTWISH in Scandinavia.
