In early June 2014, Arch Enemy will unleash 9th studio album, “War Eternal,” worldwide via Century Media Records and Trooper Entertainment in Japan. In what seems like but apparently is not an early April Fools joke, Century Media records has issued the following statement about the band now replacing front woman Angela Gossow: “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.

Sabaton vocalist Joakim Broden confirmed that the recent news about the lineup split and said it was no joke. In a post on his Facebook page, Broden stated:

“The recent news is no April fools joke I’m afraid. :(

“This hurts like a motherfucker, but we wanted different things in life and everybody is right when it’s coming to what’s right for him. There will be a new Sabaton (mk2) coming and we would never try to fool you into thinking that it would be the same.

“We are coming…… dare I say stronger than ever?”
