So far, Swedish melodeath titans Arch Enemy have released two new tracks from their upcoming album, the blistering “Deceiver, Deceiver” and the infectious “House of Mirrors.” Now, the band have revealed the full details for the record, and are teasing a new single for next week.

Arch Enemy’s 11th studio album will be called Deceivers, and will see the light of day on July 29th via Century Media Records. The album is available to be pre-saved on streaming platforms. Not only that, but the band are teasing a new single, “Handshake With Hell,” for February 4th.

“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,” says guitarist Michael Amott. “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!”
