Arch Enemy to release 11th album, ‘Deceivers,’ on July 29

Arch Enemy will release its 11th studio album, “Deceivers,” on July 29, 2022, via Century Media Records. A new single, “Handshake with Hell,” will drop and the album pre-order will start Feb. 4. Pre-save the record here, and see the album artwork below.

Before “Handshake With Hell” launches next week, fans can check out the previously released album tracks “Deceiver, Deceiver” and “House of Mirrors.”

Guitarist Michael Amott said: “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!”
