ARCH ENEMY will release a new live DVD, “As The Stages Burn!”, on March 31 via Century Media. The set contains video footage of the band’s largest stage production to date from their performance last summer at the Wacken Open Air festival in Wacken, Germany. This performance marks the pinnacle of a highly successful album campaign in support of “War Eternal”. It all began in March of 2014 when the band announced new vocalist Alissa White-Gluz as well as the video for the album title track, “War Eternal”. This debut track went on to become the bands most successful video in their career, surpassing 20 million views on YouTube. The release of the “War Eternal” album also saw ARCH ENEMY reaching their highest U.S. and German chart positions to date while going on to play over 200 shows in over 40 countries around the world. In late 2014, Jeff Loomis (ex-NEVERMORE) joined ARCH ENEMY during the world tour with KREATOR and in 2015 they played arenas as direct support for NIGHTWISH.

The official trailer for “As The Stages Burn!” is available below.

ARCH ENEMY guitarist Michael Amott told Spark TV about “As The Stages Burn!”: “I think this is the perfect album cycle to document. It’s a fresh new ARCH ENEMY, and we just spent two years on the road or more, and, yeah, we just wanna put it out there kind of as a document of this time. And the show at Wacken was really special as well. We put a lot of effort into the production and had our biggest show to date. And that’ll be the main part of the DVD, I guess, but there’s gonna be a lot of other stuff as well, and it’ll be like a live album, DVD, Blu-ray and all that stuff. We have a lot of other cool shows filmed as well, and parts of those might very well be a part of the DVD. But, you know, Wacken was just a great opportunity; it’s the biggest heavy metal festival in the world.”

ARCH ENEMY will celebrate the release of “As The Stages Burn!” with a number of European shows with special support from LACUNA COIL and THE HAUNTED.

Regarding the progress of the songwriting sessions for ARCH ENEMY’s follow-up to “War Eternal”, Michael said: “There’s plenty of ideas floating around, and there’s even some simple demos and stuff like that, but we haven’t really seriously gotten into the songwriting process yet. But there’s a lot of ideas. But we’ve been spending so much time on the road, and we’re not really the kind of band that writes music on the road. I mean, we might come up with a little riff idea or a melody, or something like that, or a lyrical idea, but it’s easier to put it together at home when you take some specific, dedicated time to write and put together music. It’s a different kind of focus that you need, I think. You wake up in a different city every day, and it’s a different life, and it’s a little bit hard to focus on things like that.”

Added Loomis: “I think the writing process is gonna be awesome between us. It’s just like Mike said — we really haven’t had a lot of time to sit down together yet, but I think that time is gonna be coming soon.”

Regarding the expectations for ARCH ENEMY’s next album, Alissa said: “I think that for all of us, with any new album, or even just with any show, it’s always a challenge to do better than the last time. And I think that we all love ‘War Eternal’ and it’s always gonna be super special to us, but we still wanna do better this time. It’s just a matter of always keeping very, very high standards and being critical on yourself but in a constructive way, so that you can always produce good music and good performances. I don’t think any of us are complacent when it comes to the quality of music that we’ve put out. I don’t think we have any specific ideas in mind for things that we have to achieve within the album, but we have a really strong lineup here that’s capable of putting together a really solid album. So we’re all pretty excited about it… Let’s not forget also that we have Jeff here for the writing process of this album, which we didn’t have with ‘War Eternal’, so right there we have a whole new world to explore. So that’s pretty exciting too.”

BELOW IS A RELEATED NEWS ARTICLE FROM 5 DAYS AGO

Former ARCH ENEMY frontwoman Angela Gossow has revealed in a new interview with France’s Hard Force that she is planning to launch a new extreme metal project at some point in the not-too-distant future.

The German-born Gossow, who is still closely involved with ARCH ENEMY as their manager, said that she will likely begin work on the new project in 2018, once the initial promotional and touring activities for ARCH ENEMY’s next studio album have been completed.

Gossow said in a 2016 interview that she was “losing the joy” of fronting an extreme metal band before finally making the decision to quit ARCH ENEMY, explaining that she wanted to “step down rather than pretend.”

After 13 years as ARCH ENEMY’s vocalist, Gossow shocked the heavy metal world in 2014 with the sudden announcement of her retirement from the band.

“I took over management in 2008 already, after I noticed our previous manager was making a nice chunk of money, but we — the artist — did not at all,” she told Roppongi Rocks about her move into artist management. “We hardly managed to get by. That couldn’t be right. A lot of things changed for us since then. I think most managers take way too much out of the artist’s pocket. Like 20% of the gross income, then they waste away what’s left, no regards for the budget and the fact the artist should really make the most out of it. I’ve changed that. I take a lot less commission and I always make sure the artist makes more money than me at the end of the day!”

About her decision to step down as ARCH ENEMY’s singer, Gossow said simply: “There’s a time and place for everything. I started out in 1991. I was simply losing the joy to be doing this, living a life on the road. So I decided to step down rather than pretending.”

Gossow also praised her replacement in ARCH ENEMY, Alissa White-Gluz, while revealing that she has started managing Alissa’s new, yet-to-be-disclosed solo project.

“I took notice of [Alissa] a couple of years ago [after] she came to an ARCH ENEMY show in Montreal and told me ‘Wages Of Sin’ was her reason to get into growling,” Angela said. “I checked out her stuff [with her previous band THE AGONIST and] I was really impressed. When I started to think about my future and the future of the band, I decided to approach her. There’s not many out there who’d be up for that task, it’s easy to throw some clips on YouTube and pretend to be serious. But the real game is much tougher. You’ll be out there performing no matter how you feel, you got a responsibility. You need to step it up big time to become a professional touring and recording musician. You need discipline, health and talent. She’s got it all.”

ARCH ENEMY is currently working on material for the follow-up to its latest album, 2014’s “War Eternal”, tentatively due before the end of the year.
