During a recent show on the band's European tour, Arch Enemy vocalist Alissa White-Gluz (who's still a new addition to the band) actually jumped so hard on stage that she broke her riser into pieces and broke a rib in the fall. However, she has been a trooper and continued with the tour. Arch Enemy already finished the first 10 shows and crowds have been welcoming Alissa on her debut tour with the band.

She said about it: "Thank you for the love and well wishes, everyone who has written to me! It really does help, seriously! As someone who avoids drugs at all costs, I take a pretty mind-over-matter approach to physical pain, so I'm finding ways of coping with the pain on stage and keeping my body horizontal when off stage.

"Anyone at that show who saw me body slam through the fucking riser could imagine there would be some damage. But, I'm a stubborn fuck and I waited a few shows before going to get xrays, ultra sounds and blood tests. The damage to my head, arms and legs is just bad bruising, there is no apparent organ damage and no internal bleeding.

"Unfortunately there is a compound break on one rib and severe bruising around several others. Good news is that the pieces of the rib are well aligned to heal back in place! The doctor forbade me to continue playing shows... But cancelling shows would hurt way worse. Today felt a bit better... I could breathe with less pain and I am almost able to stand up/sit down without pain. Can't wait to heal this shit so I can work out again. The shows have been just amazing, thank you! I look forward to destroying many more stages with you guys (and to hopefully avoid destroying myself from now on). Horns up!"

You can also check out the band's recently released track by track videos with Michael Amott (guitar) and new vocalist Alissa White-Gluz in anticipation of the new album War Eternal that will drop on June 9th in Europe and June 10th in North America on Century Media Records.

I would have requested a chopper rescue team for broken nail.

Tough Canadian chic. Horns up for the best national flag design in the world as well.

Oh wow. Well.. That's what I call... *puts on sunglasses* Brutal! Yeaaah! Oh wait, it doesn't work, this is a serious accident so I shouldn't joke about it on the internet. My bad.

I appreciate her spirit but I think these kinda things are no jokes ... it would be pretty stupid to die of some obscure body dysfunction. Anyway, I hope she gets well soon.

Ahah nice one! It's still weird seeing her sing old AE songs. Hopefully, it'll be easier with time.

She's trying so hard to vaporize Angela's image. She even tried to put up her body online and look at that, silly broke her rib.

Somewhere, Angela Gossow must be laughing hard.

I'm not so sure about that, since now Angela is on the managerial side of AE.

And honestly, I still find these Alissa vs Angela arguments pretty stupid. Everything was friendly, and it was Angela's decision to leave. I don't see any reason to bitch about that.
Cynic Metalhead - 08.06.2014 at 16:38  
Nothing was friendly. It was "made up".

Angela did her graduation in economics so she knows about the cash flow and maintaining balance sheet of AE(particularly Finance dept.). So, she took out this excuse and quit this band. In reality, she wasn't happy about AE linking up with Alissa.

Boom, I now got the reason to bitch.

"I am passing the torch to the super talented Alissa White-Gluz , whom I've known as a dear friend and a superb vocalist for many years. I always thought she deserved a chance to shine - and now she's getting it. Just like I got that chance back in 2001."

Maybe it's just me, but she doesn't sound so pissed off. These don't seem empty words suited to the occasion. Again, maybe it's me and my irreducible belief in people.

("Boom"? REALLY?)

Because most people seem to have to a VS. this or that. Versus this album, versus this band, versus this member, versus this genre. It gets old.

Its got a leaf on it. The Welsh flag has a dragon. Can't get more metal than that.
