ARCH ENEMY postpones 'Deceivers' album release
ARCH ENEMY have pushed back the release date of their 11th studio album, “Deceivers”, to August 12 from the previously announced July 29.
Earlier today, ARCH ENEMY issued the following statement regarding the matter: “Dear ARCH ENEMY fans, due to unforeseen circumstances, the release of the new album ‘Deceivers’ has to be postponed two weeks. The new release date will be August 12th. This is later than expected, but we promise it will be worth the wait. We want to thank you for your great support and hope to meet as many of you as possible this summer!”
Last month, ARCH ENEMY released a new seven-inch single, “Sunset Over The Empire”, with the title track also appearing on “Deceivers”. The official music video for “Sunset Over The Empire”, directed by Grupa13, was made available the same day.
In a recent interview with Tampa Bay Creative Loafing, ARCH ENEMY singer Alissa White-Gluz stated about the band’s decision to release more singles than usual this time around.

ARCH ENEMY guitarist Michael Amott comments: “Having just celebrated our 25th anniversary as a group and now releasing our 11th studio album, one could easily assume that we would be cruising along and going through the motions at this point. In reality, nothing could be further from the truth when it comes to ARCH ENEMY and our new album, ‘Deceivers’.
“It is, without a doubt, always a challenge to raise the bar each time in both the songwriting and production side of things, and it can feel a bit daunting before we get into it. But once we do get started and fully immerse ourselves in the creative process, it’s really like there is nothing else in the world and we are very focused. And believe it or not, for the most part, we have a ton of fun making this music! Creating ‘Deceivers’ was no different. Once again we shut out the outside world and went deep into the artistic zone. I believe we pulled out some really interesting musical and lyrical themes this time, a few things might even raise an eyebrow or two — while retaining all the signature elements of the band. In the end, it’s ARCH ENEMY at full speed and power.”
