After the release of Deceiver, Deceiver – their first original music in four years – and followup single House of Mirrors, which blends death metal with '80s-style lead guitars, Arch Enemy have officially announced their 11th studio album, Deceivers.

An 11-track record described as “ruthlessly catchy and mercilessly violent”, Deceivers is the band's first original full-length since 2017's Will to Power. And a third single is on the way, too. Handshake With Hell, the album's opener, is set to arrive next Friday (February 4), so mark your calendar.
