Alissa-thumb


The global metal scene recognizes Alissa White-Gluz for her unforgettable and inimitable work as the vocalist of iconic metal band Arch Enemy. At this point in her career, the versatile singer has worked steadily in heavy bands for half her life. The impactful frontwoman has cultivated her style and her sound through years of writing, recording, touring, and old fashioned, iron-clad work ethic. Alissa is armed with equal skill and experience, as well as abundant artistic confidence, and is backed by the fact that music lovers all over the world are eager to hear more of her astonishing range. That's why White-Gluz is doing something new.

 It's an entity dubbed simply "ALISSA" and her brand new solo project has now been worldwide signed by Napalm Records.

 First things first — White-Gluz remains firmly installed in her role as the frontwoman of Arch Enemy. That status has not and will not change. ALISSA is more of a musical collective, led by White-Gluz and featuring contributions from her wide network of also-talented friends, like an own creative commune with little in the way of rules, regulations, or limits.
 
So what is ALISSA all about?

Alissa White-Gluz on her signing with Napalm Records: 
“I’m excited to announce that I am currently composing and building my first solo album for the project aptly and honestly entitled “ALISSA” which will see some more of my creative adventures unleashed. It is a welcome creative outlet to unlock all of my lyrical and musical vaults with zero restriction or pressure to conform to any particular style or era. I also pay close attention to what my fans want - I haven’t been ignoring the consistent requests for my clean singing voice! With Angela Gossow as management and Napalm Records just as passionate as I am about this new project, I’m fortunate to have found a home amongst friends and colleagues who are supportive and encouraging of my full musical spectrum. This album will also feature members of the Arch Enemy family, both current and past, as well as many of the other great artists I have had the pleasure of sharing a stage with throughout my career. So many respected artists have invited me into their music over the years, now it’s time to bring them into my world.   Thank you to all my incredible fans around the world - this music is for you!”


Thomas Caser, Napalm Records CEO states: 
„A true pleasure to announce this signing today. We are looking forward to this cooperation with one of the most talented front-ladies and artists in today’s business!”


The ALISSA project is about style and substance, with White-Gluz affirming, "This album will be very personal. I have a lot of ideas, songs, lyrics, and compositions built up in my brain over the years, I want to get them out this way." White-Gluz is stretching her creative muscles and trying new things in a dynamic way.


Most people know Alissa from being in Arch Enemy, where she focuses mostly on her growling vocals. With creating ALISSA it is the perfect platform for presenting her clean singing voice more often as well as delivering other techniques we all have heard from other works with bands. While the project is taking shape, some of the confirmed guests so far include past and present members of Arch Enemy and Kamelot, as well as Doyle from The Misfits. More creative partnerships will be revealed as this exciting and delightfully nebulous project develops and grows. In the meantime, White-Gluz continues to flesh out the material while recruiting players.


ALISSA is essentially another vehicle for White-Gluz to display her talents and an entity that has no boundaries and therein lies the musical thrill — for Alissa White-Gluz and her listeners. An album is already scheduled for 2017 and tour dates will follow around the album release as well. Stay tuned for many more exciting details & info to follow!
