The clip was directed by longtime collaborator Patric Ullaeus and focuses on the band members while they are performing the song, especially new vocalist Alissa White-Gluz, who recently replaced Angela Gossow.
Not only is ‘War Eternal’ the debut Arch Enemy album for White-Gluz, it’s also the first for guitarist Nick Cordle, who joined the band in 2012. Guitarist and founding member Michael Amott addressed the changes.
“Changes in the band lineup are hardly ever looked upon favorably by the fans, which I completely understand,” Amott says. “Nonetheless, it does happen and the changes that have been made in the Arch Enemy camp were necessary in order for the band to survive and keep going. I love the energy of working with new people and Alissa and Nick have certainly brought a lot of talent and enthusiasm to the band!”
“My goal is to keep Arch Enemy alive and thriving!” White-Gluz says. “I want to open a whole new chapter for Arch Enemy, powerful and diverse, all the while respecting the legions of fans that love traditional Arch Enemy. Fans can expect loads of pure f–king metal.”
Arch Enemy just kicked off a busy touring schedule. They’ll be playing numerous European festivals this summer and have other tours scheduled for the rest of the year, but no North American shows. You can check out their full concert schedule here.
