Arch Enemy have announced that they’ll release an album of cover versions early next year.

It’ll be titled Covered In Blood and is a compilation of all the covers the band have recorded throughout their career. It's set to arrive on January 18 via Century Media, and while a full tracklist will be revealed in due course, the final cover art can be seen below.

In addition, Arch Enemy will launch a limited edition 7-inch vinyl single of their Will To Power track Reason To Believe on December 7. It’ll be backed by their version of the Tears For Fears song Shout.

The single will be available on black vinyl (300 copies), white vinyl (200 copies), clear vinyl (100 copies - available at CMDistro EU), silver vinyl (200 copies - available at Nuclear Blast) and red vinyl (200 copies - available at EMP). 

All are now available to pre-order, while both tracks will also be released on digital platforms.

Arch Enemy's Michael Amott says: "Reason To Believe is a song that was born out of reminiscing about my own youth and also the stories from our fans around the world. This one’s for you. Always keep on fighting, my friends!" 

The band also have several 2019 European festival appearances booked. Find details below.
