Arch Enemy have released a video for their new track The Race.

It’s been lifted from the band’s new album Will To Power, which arrived in September via Century Media, with the promo featuring live footage from a recent show in Helsinki.

Founding member Michael Amott says: “This was actually the last song written for the Will To Power album. Listening through all the material we had up to that point, we agreed that the album needed one more song that would be a relentless and fast-paced counterpoint to some of the more epic compositions we already had.

“We sent vocalist Alissa White-Gluz the music and she came up with a thought provoking set of lyrics with an intense vocal arrangement that complemented the music perfectly.

“We’ve been having a blast playing this song on the current tour and we had our video director Patric Ullaeus come out to capture the mayhem at our recent show in Helsinki, Finland. Enjoy The Race!”

Arch Enemy will head out on the road again in January for a run of shows across Europe and the UK. Find a full list of their live dates below.
