ARCH ENEMY announced the return of Christopher Amott to the band.
Having completed their 18-month touring promoting Doomsday Machine album and Live Apocalypse DVD, theyre now ready to prepare their next album.
Christopher who left the band in 2005 for personal reasons is now returning to join forces with his brother Mike and take ARCH ENEMY one step further.
Heres what Christopher says about his return:
This is very exciting for me, returning to Arch Enemy as a fulltime member! Right now we are working on our forthcoming album, and I'm very pleased about the way it's turning out. The new songs are fast and furious with lots of melody! To all the people who sent me kind messages while I was out of the band, thank you for your support; it helped me a lot. After this (much needed) two-year break, I'm looking forward to getting back on the road. I hope to see you all later this year!"
Michael, on his side, comments:
So, we are back with my brother Christopher on guitar - it's a huge rush to have him back playing in his signature style! He's jumped in at the end of the songwriting process for the new album and added some of his unique spice. I feel Christopher's playing has matured and is more precise and even faster than before! Guitar fans are going to freak out at the stuff were up to on the new album!"
ARCH ENEMY have spent recent weeks locked in intense rehearsals at their homebase in Halmstad, Sweden, putting the final touches on their new material and integrating Christopher into the new songs for the forthcoming studio album. More news on this will follow shortly.
