REVAMP's self-titled debut album was released in Europe on May 28 via Nuclear Blast Records.

After the breakup of AFTER FOREVER, singer Floor Jansen decided she wanted to start over and present a new band to the public as soon as possible. To accomplish this, she joined forces with two additional songwriters to first compose, then record an album. A live band formed soon after the CD's completion, which got her back on stage where she belongs.

REVAMP touring lineup:

* Floor Jansen: Vocals
* Jaap Melman (DREADLOCK PUSSY, PENDEJO): Bass
* Ruben Wijga (INSOMNIA): Keyboards
* Jord Otto: Guitar
* Arjan Rijnen (PENDEJO): Guitar
* Matthias Landes (DARK FORTRESS): Drums

KELLS' sophomore album, "Lueurs" (French for "lights"), was released last year in France via Season Of Mist. The follow-up to 2005's "Gaïa" features a guest appearance by vocalist Candice Clot from the French metalcore band ETHS on the track "La Sphère".

KELLS recently parted ways with drummer Jean "Jano" Padovan and replaced him with Julien Nicolas (FURIA).
