Arch Enemy Replace Angela With The Agonist's Alissa White-Gluz

(TeamRock Radio) Angela Gossow has stepped down from fronting Arch Enemy in order to focus on managing the band, she's revealed. The band's upcoming ninth album, War Eternal, will feature new vocalist Alissa White-Gluz, ex of The Agonist. Her first track with the band will be launched later this week.

And while The Agonist have confirmed her replacement, White-Gluz sounded a tone of regret that she wasn't given the chance to continue fronting both bands.

Gossow says in a statement: "After 13 years of pure f***ing metal, six studio albums and countless tours, I feel the need to enter a different phase in my life. I'll remain business manager of Arch Enemy and I'll continue to develop my management roster. I'm staying true to my heavy metal roots - just leaving the spotlight, so to speak.

"I've known Alissa as a fear friend and superb vocalist for many years. I always thought she deserved a chance to shine, and now she's getting it, just like I got back in 2001. I'm proud to be part of this Arch Enemy chapter, albeit in a different way, revving up the engines behind the scenes.

"I hope to see you in front of the stage - I will join you there this time. Let the killing begin, once again!"
