New ARCH ENEMY EP On The Way; Headbanger’s Ball Tour III Dates

Just in time for their appearance on MTV2‘s Headbanger’s Ball III Tour, ARCH ENEMY will release a new EP, Dead Eyes See No Future, on November 2nd. Mike Amott (guitars) further describes the group’s excitement over their new EP and upcoming tour, “Well – finally! Back to the U.S. again! After some of the problems we had earlier this year in America, it’s a relief to know we’ll be back again before the end of the year to shred it up for all you maniacs one more time! It’ll be a real blast coming out with CRADLE OF FILTH, not only will it give us a chance to play to a slightly different audience, but it’ll also be like a family outing for the drumming brothers Adrian [Erlandsson] (COF drummer) and our very own Daniel [Erlandsson]. Obviously Daniel‘s going to enjoy showing Adrian how it’s really done every night – we’ll see!! We’re also pleased to get a chance to get back to Canada again – we had such a great response last time we played there with IRON MAIDEN, we wanna see if they still remember us.

“The decision to make this EP started to come about after we played a particularly intense, sold-out show at the Elysee Montmartre in Paris this past April, which we were taping. Most of the recording came out sounding great, so we thought we should give you guys the chance to own a slice of prime live ENEMY, especially for all the people who haven’t seen us play yet! The inimitable Andy Sneap was on hand to do the actual live recording, and he also mixed the whole thing at his studio (where we did all the sessions for Anthems…). The cover songs on the EP – we had a real blast working out our take on these classic metal tunes, especially the CARCASS song… I was expecting to find it kind of strange to play it with the AE guys, but I have to say they made an amazing job of it – in my not-so-humble opinion!! Being a huge fan of MEGADETH, I must admit it’s a tough task to better the original there…we just did a very, very heavy version of the song. The MANOWAR track turned out unexpectedly brutal, this was always a favourite song of mine from my early “heavy metal daze!” I love the speed and intensity of this song ??” it sounds very ARCH ENEMY with lots of guitar shredding! So a fairly spur-of-the-moment idea actually turned into something good enough to let you guys get your teeth into it so enjoy.”
