Arch Enemy - DVD Release In The Works, New Album Planned For 2014

Arch Enemy's vocalist Angela Gossow has left a personal update today on her Facebook page divulging what's next for the band and their future plans. The band intends to release a new DVD/Blu-ray next year and write/record a new album, to be released in 2014.

Angela Gossow's message: "Time for a personal update :-) European tour was awesome! Lots of people came to the shows - very, very grateful for this given the tough economy all around. We know how it feels to be broke. Been there many times. But just like you we rather spend our last penny on music (or gear for that matter) than paying our phone bill.. for that matter I only have a prepaid card and no phone contract ;-) I hate bills and reminders.

Back home now, recovering from dirty backstage rooms, cold showers and lack of quality sleep. I love playing live, a shame I can't bring my home (or at least my bed and my clean bathroom) on tour though, haha.. After 12 years of continuous touring I can tell ya, sometimes I think about stopping for good and route for the homely life instead.

We got the Latin America tour kicking off in November all the way through December and then we'll stop touring for at least 6 months, we'll just do a few EU festivals in the summer, like Wacken :-). Will be interesting how that feels.

We have a massive new live DVD/BlueRay in the works and it will take up a real chunk of my time to get that together for an autumn 2013 release. We filmed so many shows... And we will film even more now during the Latin America tour. We got a ton of incidental footage too... That will be weeks and weeks of sorting out, editing, cutting, mix and master. Plus we got a new album to write and record in 2013 too. It will drop in spring-ish 2014."

It looks like the band's upcoming Latin American tour will be the last extensive touring for a few months.

Them taking some time off would be a great idea
Maybe they"d be able to release something good again after a few years pause

Haha, that's like saying "compose your own Metal album and upload it here, instead of writing a review of an album". :lol:

I hope the new album bears inspiration from Wages of Sin or their older albums in the Liiva era... maybe that is just wishful thinking

PLEASE go all out for this album and use all your potential! The previous one was an absolute disaster.

I think it's a good move to give it more time for the next one. But to be honest, I stopped expecting much from them after their latest album.

I hope that the next album won't have the rebellious themes... go and sing / play about something else!
