Sweden's ARCH ENEMY have confirmed plans to return to North America for a headlining tour in late October/early November. "We are in the final stages of booking the shows," stated guitarist Michael Amott. "These are headlining shows and we are stoked!"As far as support bands go, we are doing our best to get a great package together," the guitarist continued. "More on that subject soon! We are in the middle of rehearsing, putting together a set list with a killer mix of old songs (some of this stuff we haven't played in a long time) and stuff from our recent Wages Of Sin album (we are also jamming a lot on brand new material for our next record, it's really sick stuff but that's a WHOLE different story!). "The dates will be concentrated around the east coast and north east, with hopefully some dates in Canada as well. There won't be any west coast shows this time around, but we might be there later in December (we are working on it, it's not a promise!)." Although no opening acts have yet been announced, DARK TRANQUILLITY and SWORN ENEMY are rumored to have been approached to join the package. No confirmed dates have yet been made available, but a November 9th date at Jaxx in Springfield, Virginia is said to be a distinct possibility.
