Angela Gossow Says She’s Starting Another Metal Band, New Arch Enemy Album Coming in 2017
Angela Gossow was one absolutely badass metal frontwoman. Seeing Arch Enemy live during her 13-year tenure with the band was very much about Gossow’s performance; she just had that innate ability to completely dominate a stage and command an audience. Which is why it was a major bummer when she stepped down in 2014. Not that her replacement, Alissa White-Gluz, isn’t also fantastic.
But now it seems as if Gossow’s got the itch to return to the stage again, having spent the past two-plus years still very much involved with Arch Enemy, just on the management side. In a recent interview with Hard Force, when asked about her future, here’s what Angela had to say:
Yes, I want to do a new extreme metal project, but it will happen when everything with Arch Enemy and Alissa is over and everyone is sailing in calmer waters. I suppose I will have time for that in 2018, when we have completed the first series of headline tours and so on. I will do it when the time comes.
Elsewhere in the interview (and as alluded to above), Gossow reveals that Arch Enemy will release a new album in 2017, and Jeff Loomis (who I always forget is in Arch Enemy now!) will release a solo album as well. Good stuff to look forward to.
