Dutch singer Floor Jansen (pictured; NIGHTWISH, REVAMP) will join Swedish metallers SOILWORK on stage on March 21 at Circus in Helsinki, Finland. The concert will be filmed for SOILWORK‘s first-ever live DVD, to be released later in the year. SOILWORK says: “The song that Floor will lend her beautiful and powerful voice to will remain a secret for now, as I’m sure you understand… Just make sure you don’t miss out on this!!!”

Adds Floor: “I have been a fan of [SOILWORK‘s] music for years! They will record a live DVD this special evening; definitely a show you don’t want to miss! The show takes place in Circus in Helsinki, Finland. See you there?!”

The choice of location for the shoot of the first-ever SOILWORK audiovisual live document was an easy one since Helsinki has always been a second home to the band. The venue itself, Circus, was just the right one to offer a full-on SOILWORK show.

The show will mark SOILWORK‘s only Scandinavian show of the spring.

The DVD will be produced by Jouni Markkanen and directed by Ville Lipiäinen, who also helmed the most recent NIGHTWISH DVD, “Showtime, Storytime”.

SOILWORK‘s ninth studio and first dual-disc album, “The Living Infinite”, sold around 7,800 copies in the United States in its first week of release to enter The Billboard 200 chart at position No. 60. The effort also landed at No. 11 on the Independent Albums chart, and No. 2 on the Hard Music chart. “The Living Infinite” entered the iTunes Metal Top Albums chart at No. 1 and was the No. 1 most added album on the CMJ radio chart.

“The Living Infinite” was produced by Jens Bogren (OPETH, AMON AMARTH, BLOODBATH) and boasts artwork by MNEMIC‘s Mircea Gabriel Eftemie. The CD features Justin Sullivan — lead singer of the English band NEW MODEL ARMY — as a guest vocalist on the track “The Windswept Mercy” and also marks the recording debut of longtime SOILWORK touring guitarist David Andersson (also of THE NIGHT FLIGHT ORCHESTRA).

SOILWORK released a lavish deluxe version of its 2001 classic breakthrough album “A Predator’s Portrait” on October 18, 2013 in Europe and October 15, 2013 in the U.S. The effort was reissued as a digipack with an all new artwork and will contain two previously unreleased live bonus tracks.
