Arch Enemy Put the Spotlight on New Lineup in ‘War Eternal’ Video
Arch Enemy are wasting no time in getting their fans acclimated to the surprising vocalist switch that they revealed earlier this week. Longtime frontwoman Angela Gossow left the band, with The Agonist‘s Alissa White-Gluz taking over on vocals. Here, White-Gluz makes her video debut with the title track from the band’s new ‘War Eternal’ album.
As can be seen in the Patric Ullaeus-directed video above, the focus is on the performance and White-Gluz commands the screen with her in-your-face vocals. As for the band, they’re their usual heavy selves with some serious guitar riffing showcased in the clip.
Guitarist Michael Amott says, “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—ing war.”
The ‘War Eternal’ song will be streaming via Spotify beginning this Friday (March 21). As for the ‘War Eternal’ album, fans can look for that coming in June via Century Media Records. Look for the band touring in Europe beginning in May, with a U.S. trek in the planning stages for fall 2014.
