Update on Stratovarius...from the Noise Records website:

Official Stratovarius Press Release: New vocalist for Stratovarius is called "Miss K"

The vocal talents of this sultry Finnish lady vary from raunchy rock to classical operatic. Her voice range is over 3 octaves and she is capable of transforming the Stratovarius sound to something unique, something that has never been heard in Metal before.

She is 30 years old and has a background in gymnastics, where she has twice become a Finnish Champion, and in acting. She has until now been singing in some local bands and has done over 200 gigs. Drummer for the next album will be Anders Johansson, the brother of Jens Johansson.

After selling over 1 500 000 copies of their previous records, Stratovarius is now ready to take the next step in their career.

The band will enter the studio, a secret place, in May to record 11th studio album, which has a working title "PopKiller". The album is due February 2005 followed up by massive World Tour.
