Angela Gossow Steps down as Frontwoman for ARCH ENEMY; Replacement Announced

March 17th, 2014
Arch Enemy

Arch Enemy

In early June 2014, Arch Enemy will unleash their 9th studio album, War Eternal, worldwide via Century Media Records and Trooper Entertainment in Japan. With this upcoming release, the band will introduce a new member to their ranks: Alissa White-Gluz, former vocalist of Canadian extreme metallers 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 management, while Alissa takes her place.

Angela Gossow comments: 
“Dear ARCH ENEMY fans, this is not easy to tell you…I have decided to step down from being ARCH ENEMY’s voice of anger. After 13 years of pure fucking metal, 6 studio albums and countless tours through five continents, I feel the need to enter a different phase in my life, be with my family and pursue other interests. I will however remain business manager for ARCH ENEMY, and I will continue to develop my artist management roster. I am staying true to my heavy metal roots, just leaving the spotlight so to speak. I am passing the torch to the super talented Alissa White-Gluz, whom I’ve known as a dear friend and a superb vocalist for many years. I always thought she deserved a chance to shine – and now she’s getting it. Just like I got that chance back in 2001.

arch enemy1
I want to thank all ARCH ENEMY fans, our labels Century Media (worldwide) and Trooper Entertainment (Japan), our dedicated road crew, and in particular Michael, Daniel and Sharlee for their love and support throughout all these years. It’s been one hell of a ride! We conquered every situation, made it through thick & thin together in the most exciting and rewarding time of my life. Thank you all for being there with me on stage, in front of the stage, and backstage. You have touched my heart, and I hope I was able to give something back to you. I am grateful for the wonderful memories – I will cherish them forever! I am looking forward to the next decade of ARCH ENEMY madness! Right now I am listening through rough mixes of the new studio album and I am blown away! 2014 will see a renewed ARCH ENEMY at the top of their game. I am 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!”

Extreme metallers THE AGONIST have announced a string of dates with DANZIG and CORROSION OF CONFORMITY along the West Coast! In regards to these upcoming tour dates (and the recent cancellation of their trek with CRADLE OF FILTH in February/March), the band comments:

“We were very honored and excited to have been included on this tour with three amazing bands that we have the utmost admiration and respect for…So when news of the cancellation came through we were not only disappointed but heartbroken about losing out on the entire experience of touring with CRADLE OF FILTH, THE FACELESS and DECAPITATED. All the members of THE AGONIST have been gearing up for this tour since the fall of last year and we were really looking forward to putting on an amazing show for both old fans and new fans alike…But alas, THE AGONIST moves on and is proud to announce an upcoming tour with the almighty DANZIG(!!!) as well as the legendary CORROSION OF CONFORMITY in the month of April, 2013! As a way to still connect with our fans, we will be holding specials in our online merch store throughout the next month. We want to wish the best of luck to the bands that were on this tour and as for the fans, the wait will be more than worth it when we come to your town in the upcoming year!”

THE AGONIST TO KICK-OFF KAMELOT TOUR WITH NEW EP EXCLUSIVELY AVAILABLE ON THE ROAD AND AT CM DISTRO; LAUNCHES OFFICIAL YOUTUBE CHANNEL

August 26th, 2011

After spending a few months in the studio, melodic death metalers THE AGONIST are ready to hit the road with KAMELOT, ALESTORM, and BLACKGUARD on their imminent North American trek. Unfortunately, lead-guitarist Danny Marino will be unable to join the band on tour, but THE AGONIST will be bringing their friend and ex-THE CATALYST guitarist Justin Deguire to handle rhythm guitar duties while Paco takes over lead guitar in his stead.

For fans that have been patiently waiting for new material from THE AGONIST, this tour will be the first opportunity to get your hands on the band’s latest release! Their brand-new “The Escape” EP will be sold exclusively on the road and online at CM Distro for the duration of the tour, and it features two songs from their upcoming full-length album: “Lonely Solipsist” and “The Escape”. The only way to get your hands on a physical copy of this limited edition EP is to catch the band on their run with KAMELOT or to order via CM Distro. The EP will also be available in a digital format after the tour-click here to see the album artwork!

Mixed by Tue Madsen (THE HAUNTED, DARK TRANQUILITY, SUICIDE SILENCE), ” The Escape” EP will be fans’ first taste of what’s to come from THE AGONIST’s upcoming full-length album. Already tracked and currently being mixed, the album is slated for an early 2012 release via Century Media Records, so stay tuned for more new material from THE AGONIST coming soon!

For fans that can’t wait for the album’s release, THE AGONIST has now launched an official youtube channel that includes a new webisode with behind-the-scenes footage of the band in the studio and on the road!

Alissa White-Gluz (THE AGONIST) named Peta2′s “Sexiest Female Vegetarian”!

July 8th, 2011
Alissa White-Gluz (THE AGONIST)

Alissa White-Gluz (THE AGONIST)

Already named one of the “Hottest Chicks In Metal” (Revolver Magazine), THE AGONIST’s Alissa White-Gluz is now also the world’s “Sexist Female Vegetarian” (Peta2)! Her star-studded competition for the 2011 title included celebrities such as Natalie Portman, Anne Hathaway, and Olivia Wilde, but ultimately metal queen Alissa reigned supreme. While honored by the title, the ever modest front-woman is just happy to show a different side of herself and other fellow veggies:

“I have been vegetarian since birth and vegan for more than half my life. Living cruelty-free is the closest thing to a religion I’ll ever believe in and it is a huge part of me and my music. Of course, the ‘sexiest veg celebrity’ contest is just for fun, but I do like how it shines a different light on the idea of veganism/vegetarianism. It’s showing people that a lot of the celebrities that they look up to and admire already follow this lifestyle, and that it’s not some weird, challenging, alienating ordeal to be veg – it’s simple, healthy, popular, and, well, sexy! I’m very honored to have won.”

Alissa and THE AGONIST recently completed a highly successful South American tour and are currently in the studio working on their upcoming release.  All instruments have been tracked and Alissa is in the midst of finishing up her vocals on the album, due in early 2012. Tue Madsen (THE HAUNTED, DARK TRANQUILITY, SUICIDE SILENCE) will be handling mixing duties on what promises to be yet another epic melodic death metal masterpiece!

For North American fans that can’t wait until 2012, THE AGONIST will be touring this August/September with ALESTORM and KAMELOT, so be sure to catch them on the road where they’re be selling an exclusive tour-only EP that will include two tracks from the upcoming album, plus a remix of “The Tempest” off of Lullabies for the Dormant Mind!

Tour Dates feat. THE AGONIST with KAMELOT, ALESTORM:

8/26 Atlanta, GA @ The Masquerade

THE AGONIST Now On Tour With Otep; Alissa White-Gluz Checks In From The Road

August 3rd, 2010

Canada’s most exciting female fronted export, THE AGONIST, are back out on the road trekking across North America with Otep, The Birthday Massacre and Beneath The Sky. The group will be debuting some new material on these dates and be sure to visit www.myspace.com/theagonist now to view their complete tour itinerary.

Alissa White-Gluz (vocals) further comments: “THE AGONIST is back on tour. We all packed our bags and headed ardently into the ‘Blue Hornet’ (Chevy Express) that carries us off to distant states to perform, but unfortunately the tour got off to a rough start. First, we get held back at the border and miss the first week of shows (which hurt us just as much as it hurt you, if not more!), and now as we are only just three shows in, our van dies on us. As soon as we get back to Montreal we are going to scrap this van in the most spectacular way possible (might ask our buddy Bam for advice on that) – it has been the bane of our touring for a long time. Luckily, we have the privilege of touring with some very awesome bands and extremely fun people, Beneath the Sky, The Birthday Massacre and Otep. It’s definitely fun for me to have other girls on the tour, not to mention other Canadians! So far the fans have been incredibly unique and fun to play for and we look forward to the rest of the shows (van permitting). It’s great to hit the West Coast and Southern U.S. again and we are EXTREMELY excited to be hitting Argentina and Chile on August 19 through 22.

“We are also excited to be able to start showcasing some material from the new album. We are now deep into the writing process and we are challenging ourselves once again, even further than we did on Lullabies for the Dormant Mind. We also have a fantastic new addition on this tour, guitarist Paco Jobin, who is also participating in the writing of our upcoming release.

“THE AGONIST is also happy to announce that we are FINALLY playing Europe! Come check out our MySpace page or my fan page (www.facebook.com/AlissaWhiteGluzFans) for dates and so I can answer any questions you may have. We are working hard on some major projects and hope to see you soon.”
