Nightwish's Next Album Will Take Some Years

(Prog) Nightwish mainman Tuomas Holopainen says he's not planning to start work on a follow-up to eighth album Endless Forms Most Beautiful for several years.

He believes the band will take a break when touring duties are completed, rather than starting work on a ninth studio project straight away. Endless Forms is their first release since vocalist Floor Jansen and multi-instrumentalist Troy Donockley were confirmed as full-time members, with drummer Jukka Nevalainen stepping back for health reasons.

Holopainen tells GuitarMania: "It's going to take a bit of time. Endless Forms Most Beautiful was quite the effort, and this tour's going to be quite the effort. I think we're going to take a little breather after this tour."

He adds: "I haven't really had the spark for even thinking about another album in the past few months. It's all been about touring and other things. So it's going to happen at some point - but it's going to take some years, I think." Read more and watch the full interview here.
