Liam Cormier commented:

“After having our road dog existence of constant touring over the past 15 years halted due to the pandemic, and with all four band members, now spread across Canada in separate cities, towns and Provinces, we haven’t been in the same room since March. While separated from each other, we thought what better time to re-examine and record new versions of 6 classic Bats tracks. With the end of 2020 just around the corner, the optimistic lyrics to ‘Deathsmarch‘ seem to ring truer now than when first shouted in 2008, ‘Hey World You’ll Never Break Us, try your hardest, try your hardest.’”

He also added:

“While we are excited for fans to hear and enjoy these new renditions, the other goal for this project is to raise funds and awareness for the clean water crisis that still exists within Canada for many Indigenous communities.”

You can stream “Deathsmarch To A New Acoustic Beat“ and “Bastards Waltz Recorded Live From TV” from the EP below:

Arch Enemy’s Alissa White-Gluz On Upcoming Solo Project: It’s “Kind Of Just Giving Me An Outlet To Do Basically Any Type Of Vocal Acrobatics That I Wanna Do”

During an appearance on Knotfest.com‘s “The Electric Theater With Clown,” Arch Enemy’s Alissa White-Gluz talked a bit about her upcoming solo project. The singer says the endeavor will give her “an outlet to do basically any type of vocal acrobatics” that she wants to do.

White-Gluz said the following:

“With ARCH ENEMY, I basically do screams — I’m growling; that’s the type of vocals that I do. But I actually do clean vocals a lot too, and not that many people know that. I’ve done a lot of guest appearances with other bands and other artists where I use that clean voice, but I don’t really use it that much in ARCH ENEMY. So the solo thing is kind of just giving me an outlet to do basically any type of vocal acrobatics that I wanna do, whether it be blues-style singing, which I have a guest thing coming out soon like that, which is pretty cool. Rock singing, power metal singing, opera singing… Basically, the idea is that it’s a way for me to kind of get my musical rocks off in any way that I want, and it’s separate from ARCH ENEMY. So I don’t have to go in and dilute ARCH ENEMY or change what that’s about it, ’cause that wouldn’t be right either. It’s basically something that I kind of just had as this ongoing project that I’ve been working on any time I had time off from ARCH ENEMY touring, which was basically no time until this year. So I’ve been working a lot on it this year and recording it at a home studio that I built. And, yeah, so far I really like it, and I’m looking forward to finishing it up.”
