ARCH ENEMY drops the music video for the new song “The Watcher”
ARCH ENEMY has released the official music video for the song “The Watcher” which was created by Jens De Vos of Panda Productions and was filmed at Germany’s Wacken Open Air on August 6.
“The Watcher” is taken from ARCH ENEMY‘s 11th studio album, “Deceivers“, which arrived on August 12 via Century Media Records.
ARCH ENEMY guitarist Michael Amott previously said about “Deceivers”: “Having just celebrated our 25th anniversary as a group and now releasing our 11th studio album, one could easily assume that we would be cruising along and going through the motions at this point. In reality, nothing could be further from the truth when it comes to ARCH ENEMY and our new album, ‘Deceivers‘.
“It is, without a doubt, always a challenge to raise the bar each time in both the songwriting and production side of things, and it can feel a bit daunting before we get into it. But once we do get started and fully immerse ourselves in the creative process, it’s really like there is nothing else in the world and we are very focused. And believe it or not, for the most part, we have a ton of fun making this music! Creating ‘Deceivers’ was no different. Once again we shut out the outside world and went deep into the artistic zone. I believe we pulled out some really interesting musical and lyrical themes this time, a few things might even raise an eyebrow or two — while retaining all the signature elements of the band. In the end, it’s ARCH ENEMY at full speed and power.”
ARCH ENEMY is appearing at select summer festivals before embarking on the rescheduled “European Siege 2022” trek (with BEHEMOTH, CARCASS, UNTO OTHERS) in the fall.
