The Sludgelord News: ARCH ENEMY continue to spread War Eternal announce new live dates for 2015

2014 was a busy year for Swedish extreme metal band ARCH ENEMY: New singer announced in early 2014, new album out in the summer, extensive press trip all over the world from LA to London to Berlin and Tokyo, followed by conquering the biggest summer festival stages. A US tour supported by Kreator in fall was the next step on their busy schedule, new guitar player Jeff Loomis (ex-Nevermore) came in and joined the massive winter tour supporting Kreator. But hard work pays off and 19 years after their formation, ARCH ENEMY are on a new level of their career – with no end in sight!

 2015 started with a fun trip on the 70,000 Tons Of Metal cruise to Jamaica, followed by a Latin America tour. March sees them busy with shows in Japan, Korea, China, Taiwan and Thailand. European fans will see ARCH ENEMY again in late April. The band is coming back with support from US metal force UNEARTH who will present their new album “Watchers Of Rule”, and DRONE from Germany who released their self-titled fourth album in April 2014.

 During the summer months, ARCH ENEMY will be headlining the Dynamo Metal Fest and play on further high profile festivals like Hellfest (France), Graspop (Belgium), With Full Force (Germany) and many more.

While other bands would finally go on holiday to take a break after more than a year on the road, ARCH ENEMY already announced the first shows for the second half of 2015. On December 19th they will join Nightwish to play the Wembley Arena in London. And there is even more news to come!
