On July 29th, extreme metal masters Arch Enemy will unleash their 11th studio album, Deceivers, via Century Media Records. For fans that can’t wait for the record’s release, the band is now offering a new 7″, Sunset Over The Empire (due out May 20th) – with the title track also appearing on DeceiversArch Enemy‘s founder and chief songwriter Michael Amott comments: “I am thrilled that we are releasing our next single ‘Sunset over the Empire’ not only digitally everywhere as usual, but also as a physical 7″ vinyl record. I’m a big fan of the vinyl format myself and I think this killer looking 7″ will be a nice collector’s item as it’s a limited run. The B-side is an instrumental we’ve never released before on a record, and the A-side is one of my fave tracks off our new upcoming album ‘Deceivers‘!”

–white vinyl (limited to 1000 copies; available via CM Distro Europe)
