ARCH ENEMY have revealed the second single, "The Eagle Flies Alone", taken from their forthcoming album Will To Power due out on September 8 via CENTURY MEDIA RECORDS worldwide.
Band leader Michael Amott comments: "Strangely enough, this is a song I wrote in sunny Mexico last year, but fear not - Arch Enemy hasn't gone Mariachi on you! On the contrary, this song is steeped in classic Metal and melancholic Scandinavian atmosphere. Lyrically, this is an anthemic warcry to all fellow individualists around the Heavy Metal world. We shot the video with our director Patric Ullaeus in Sweden on the coldest outdoor shoot I can recall ever doing! The end result was totally worth it, it turned out beautifully. I guess sometimes you really have to suffer for the art!"
Will To Power due September 8, Digital & Physical Pre-Order Bundles Available Now!
"The Eagle Flies Alone" will be offered as an instant download, along with their debut single "The World Is Yours", with all digital pre-orders.
Once Will To Power hits the streets, ARCH ENEMY will do what they do best - hitting the road and taking their latest batch of heroic metal anthems to the people! The band will kickstart their international Will To Power Tour with a headlining jaunt across Eastern Europe with special guests Jinjer in September, before making their way overseas for a co-headlining North American tour with Trivium, featuring support from While She Sleeps and Fit For An Autopsy from October through December. ARCH ENEMY will continue touring into the new year, with a January trek across Europe with support from Wintersun, Tribulation, and Jinjer. Full dates can be found below. Tickets for all shows are available here: www.archenemy.net.
