Arch Enemy singer Alissa White-Gluz has issued a statement shooting down all allegations that she has been trying to prevent the release of the The Agonist's latest album. Vicky Psarakis, who replaced White-Gluz in The Agonist, stated in a recent interview that Alissa had been sabotaging her former band, telling: “I will say that she [Alissa White-Gluz] has been trying to kill this band ever since she was fired.”

In a statement published via former Arch Enemy frontwoman Angela Gossow‘s Kult Management, White-Gluz has now denyied the allegations. Tells Alissa White-Gluz of her ex-band:

“I do not and have not talked about them or even thought about them in years. I am more than happy to talk to Vicky and put her concerns to rest because I know for a fact they are completely untrue. I have nothing but good luck to give her since I know I really enjoyed the music I made in that band and I’m sure she is making great music now too. She is welcome to contact me and always has been welcome to do so, but never has.”

Adds White-Gluz:

“I want to give her the benefit of the doubt that she is just confused or misinformed. I don’t know anything about her and as such, don’t have any ill will towards her.”

White-Gluz went on to say of her only contact with her former bandmates in The Agonist:

“The only contact I’ve had with them in any way was when I encountered the bass player at a metal show in Montreal a few years back and had nothing but a handshake with him. That was the ONLY contact I have had with that band in any way shape or form since we parted ways. I cannot stress enough that I am extremely happy and extremely busy with my current projects and don’t have time to dwell on the activities of others.”

“I do not have any time, energy or interest to invest in trying to control someone else. Women in metal ALL stick together, no matter what. She and I are both just trying to have our music heard and I know firsthand how emotional and difficult it can be because I’ve been through it all, working my way from the ground up for years.

I have no negative feelings towards her. I think she just misspoke and got emotionally carried away.

She is welcome to contact me at any time. I am happy to help her in any way she needs and I sincerely wish her the best.

I am proud of my fans for taking the high road and not engaging in harassing others. Please do NOT harass Vicky or her band. People make mistakes and we can forgive them. Thank you.”
