"This album became the most aggressive album I've ever made," shares Jansen from her home in the Netherlands, "and in the lyrics I tell a lot about my personal experiences of the last years. This resulted into some heavy stories and some openhearted 'screams' I needed out of my system. It matches the violence of the music in a great way. We wrote as a great team but not one sentence or word can really cover the contents of this album - its variety in all its ingredients makes it almost impossible. A wild card is an unpredictable and unforeseeable factor. You don't know what you're getting, or when. That's this album! It's 100% REVAMP and it's your wild card!"
On the theme of the album artwork - created by Richard Stark of NI Concept & Design - Jansen elaborates:
"I am the queen of hearts on it, who is a wild card herself. You see a 'nice' and a 'nasty' queen. The nasty one has a cracked lip, cuts in her face, and a bleeding heart in her hand. The other queen looks nice even though queens of hearts never truly are... again, what is it you're going to get? In that respect, the artwork visualizes the music, from aggressive and nasty to melodic and pretty. This theme has been important to me personally throughout my career and also in this album I played with it to the max. I used my voice in so many different ways - the music invited me to do this! I am super proud of the amazing guitar riffs, the versatile and groovy but mega tight drums and the keyboard sounds and arrangements that bring something new to the table. We hope you like our wild card!"
