Ayreon - Floor Jansen, Hansi Kürsch, Guthrie Govan Among New Album Guests

Judging by the guests announced so far, it looks like Ayreon's new album will be stellar. In the last few days, mastermind Arjen Anthony Lucassen has been revealing some of the guests. You can start discovering more about the album today. Guitarist Guthrie Govan (The Aristocrats, Steven Wilson) is the latest confirmation. He will be doing a guitar solo on the new album and so will Paul Gilbert. Furthermore, Hansi Kürsch from Blind Guardian, Floor Jansen of Nightwish, Simone Simons of Epica, Tommy Rogers of Between The Buried And Me, James LaBrie (Dream Theater) and Michael Mills of Toehider will all sing on the record.

You can hear excerpts of each of these guests contribution here as their respective characters.

The new album is set to be released in 2017 and the album title hasn't been revealed yet.

This had better be good to make up for the previous album... which wasn't bad, just average and predictable.
I am not nor have I ever been a musician or a member of a one-man band, especially a band that has a name that starts with "D".

Sorry but this has been going for a month now so not necessarily "news" for me. But might be good update for anyone who isn't following them anyway.

Wish he was doing Star One instead.

Sounds a bit more focused than Theory, which is good. I liked that one, but it seemed to lack a grand design (ironically). Floor's parts are awesome.
