As announced earlier this week, Extreme Metal icons ARCH ENEMY have introduced a new member to their ranks: Alissa White-Gluz, former vocalist of Canadian act THE AGONIST. Angela Gossow, who joined ARCH ENEMY in 2000 and made her debut on the now classic Wages Of Sin (2001), will be stepping down as front-woman and focusing on the band's management.
Now it's time to present the new line-up with the title track of the upcoming album, War Eternal. The video was produced by the band's long-time friend, Patric Ullaeus. You can watch it here: http://youtu.be/InRMwptcgAo
The song will be also available for streaming through Spotify (starting Friday, March 21st in the early morning hours).
Chief song-writer, guitarist and band leader Michael Amott comments: "This is a day to remember. It is such a great feeling to come back with new music and to unleash the first single and video off 'War Eternal'. Behold the first chapter of the new ARCH ENEMY saga... This is f**king war!"
ARCH ENEMY will unleash their 9th studio album, War Eternal, worldwide via Century Media Records and Trooper Entertainment in Japan in early June 2014. War Eternal was recorded in various studios during winter 2013/2014 and produced by the band themselves with Jens Bogren (OPETH, PARADISE LOST, KREATOR) mixing and mastering the album at Fascination Street Studio. The "War Eternal" digital single cover was created by Gustavo Sazes; Costin Chioreanu is working on the full album cover, which will be presented soon.
ARCH ENEMY will start their War Eternal world tour in May with an extensive run through Europe. A US tour is planned for fall 2014.
Let the eternal war begin!
