Arch Enemy launch The Eagle Flies Alone video

Arch Enemy

Arch Enemy have released a video for their track The Eagle Flies Alone, taken from upcoming album Will To Power. Watch it above.

The follow-up to 2014’s War Eternal is released on September 8 and it’savailable for pre-order now.

Band leader Michael Amott says: “Strangely enough, this is a song I wrote in sunny Mexico last year, but fear not – Arch Enemy hasn’t gone mariachi on you!

“On the contrary, this song is steeped in classic metal and melancholic Scandinavian atmosphere. Lyrically, this is an anthemic war cry to all fellow individualists around the heavy metal world.

“We shot the video with our director Patric Ullaeus in Sweden, on the coldest outdoor shoot I can recall ever doing. The end result was totally worth it, It turned out beautifully – I guess sometimes you really have to suffer for the art!”

The band commence a European tour on September 9, including a run of UK dates in February. Full list below.
