Who is angela gossow dating
Angela Gossow was one absolutely badass metal frontwoman.
Seeing Arch Enemy live during her 13-year tenure with the band was very much about Gossow’s performance; she just had that innate ability to completely dominate a stage and command an audience.
Which is why it was a major bummer when she stepped down in 2014.
Not that her replacement, Alissa White-Gluz, isn’t also fantastic.
But now it seems as if Gossow’s got the itch to return to the stage again, having spent the past two-plus years still very much involved with Arch Enemy, just on the management side.
In a recent interview with Hard Force, when asked about her future, here’s what Angela had to say: Yes, I want to do a new extreme metal project, but it will happen when everything with Arch Enemy and Alissa is over and everyone is sailing in calmer waters.
So that was happening, and I didn't know that was happening.\"And I was trying to fix it with whatever I could.Whether that meant touring more, touring less, writing more, writing less, anything I could do I had to try to fix it. I worked really hard to get out of that depression, because I'm straight edge so I don't like the idea of taking drugs, taking pills, anything like that, even though I was prescribed anti-depressants.\"But I just decided that I wasn't gonna do that.And when I started with Arch Enemy it was a different circumstance, because I was writing with very different people.\"Even other things in my life have changed to that point. When somebody says, 'Here's an obstacle,' I'm like, 'Fuck that obstacle! I just always have that open mind and positive attitude. ' So then they're like 'Take these anti-depressants,' I'm like 'Fuck no! '\"And that was a weird time in my life, but actually very empowering, because I realized that I was able to get myself out. Angela Gossow shocked the metal world in 2014 when she announced she would be stepping down as Arch Enemy's frontwoman after 13 years of service.The departure coincided with the addition of new singer Alissa White-Gluz, formerly of the Agonist, as Gossow put primary focus on her behind-the-scenes role as the band's manager and even helped recruit her replacement onstage.Speaking with Roppongi Rocks, the former singer opened about why she left the band, stating, “There’s a time and place for everything. I was simply losing the joy to be doing this, living a life on the road.So I decided to step down rather than pretending.” Discussing how she took over as the band's manager in 2008, Gossow revealed that she changed the financial model, ensuring the rest of the band takes home more money than she does.She explained how bands can save money by booking certain touring markets themselves as well as by securing plane tickets and visas early, while adding that missing shows due to improper paperwork can spell doom."It’s a manager’s duty to keep a good cash flow, review label and publishing statements, make sure all shows, etc. Numbers don’t lie."When asked if she had White-Gluz in mind as her successor prior to formally stepping down, Gossow explained, “Kind of.are being paid for, know the places you need to get an advance, take no risk with work permits, hire good crew and organise everything well ahead of time," Gossow said, adding, "Losing money and having stressful moments is threatening for a band’s existence. I took notice of her a couple of years ago, she came to an Arch Enemy show in Montreal and told me was her reason to get into growling. When I started to think about my future and the future of the band, I decided to approach her." Hitting on what it takes to be a professional touring musician, she continued, "You’ll be out there performing no matter how you feel, you got a responsibility.
