NIGHTWISH's 'Amaranth' Video To Make Its Prime-Time Debut In The U.S.

NIGHTWISH's video for the song "Amaranth" will be played on the network Reelz Channel on a program called "Movies & Music" (the evening edition), as part of an episode entitled "Rocker Girls." The show is half an hour long and it will air on Monday, June 14 at 7:30 p.m. EST.

Commented the band: "This has come about due to a campaign started at Oceansouls of America where people requested NIGHTWISH videos at this network, and as a result, several videos that were never played in the U.S. before were debuted. However, these videos were only aired on the morning version of the show.

"This will be the first time that NIGHTWISH is moving from an early morning airtime to the more desirable time slot of early evening.

"Prime-time television is a huge deal, and this is the biggest sort of media exposure that NIGHTWISH has ever gotten in the United States."

NIGHTWISH keyboardist/mainman Tuomas Holopainen has completed work on a pre-production demo of the band's follow-up to 2007's "Dark Passion Play". The band will reconvene in Finland between July and September to rehearse the material and prepare for the album's final recording sessions, which will take place during the fall/winter and early spring 2011. The as-yet-untitled new CD is tentatively due in September 2011.

NIGHTWISH manager Ewo Pohjola of King Foo Entertainment Ltd recently Finland's MTV3 that singer Anette Olzon's surprise revelation that she is expecting her second child will not affect the band's plan to begin recording its new studio album.

NIGHTWISH played a special homecoming show in September 2009 at the sold-out, 11,000-capacity Hartwall Arena in Helsinki to mark the end of the band's colossal "Dark Passion Play" two-year world tour.

NIGHTWISH is not expected to play any more shows until the release of the band's next studio album.
