Swedish/German extreme metallers ARCH ENEMY will return to Australia in November for a phenomenal headlining tour. Direct support on the dates will come from New York death metal legends SUFFOCATION. Also appearing on the bill is WINDS OF PLAGUE.
Commented ARCH ENEMY guitarist Michael Amott: "We're totally looking forward returning to Australia. You know we've missed the fans and the great weather! Although the tours in '06 (with MEGADETH) and '07 (with MACHINE HEAD) were amazing in many ways, we haven't played a full headline tour in Australia since our first visit back in 2005. So this is long overdue and we are more than ready to attack your shores once again! We can't wait to give you the full ARCH ENEMY heavy metal mayhem experience! And we already know you — the fans, will bring it... Aussie style! See you all in November!"
