Arch Enemy have announced a UK and European tour for early next year.

They’ll kick off the 27-date run in Munich on January 12 and wrap up with a set in Bristol on February 14.

The shows have been organised in support of the band’s upcoming album Will To Power, which arrives on September 8 via Century Media.

Arch Enemy released a video for their new track The World Is Yours last month, with guitarist Michael Amott reporting: “This was the first song I wrote for Will To Power and drummer Daniel Erlandsson helped me arrange and finish it up – one of many songs we co-wrote and co-produced this time around.

“We had a blast recording together with the full band in the south of Sweden and then mixing with Jens Bogren, who did a superb mix and mastering – in my opinion even surpassing the epic sound on our previous record War Eternal.”

Arch Enemy previously unveiled the cover art for Will To Power – and it can be seen below, along with the final tracklist, the band’s tour dates – and a special message from vocalist Alissa White-Gluz.

Will To Power is now available for pre-order.
