ARCH ENEMY And KREATOR Announce Split 7" For North American Tour

This October/November, Swedish / American / Canadian metal icons ARCH ENEMY will return to North American soil to tour in support of their critically acclaimed new album, "War Eternal". To celebrate this momentous headlining trek, the band will release a split seven-inch single with German thrash metal veterans KREATOR, who will provide direct support on the run. The exclusive transparent red seven-inch single (limited to 500 copies) will be available at the merchandise table; a dark red seven-inch single (limited to 500 copies) will also be available on KREATOR and ARCH ENEMY's European tour, which sees ARCH ENEMY as direct support.

ARCH ENEMY/KREATOR split seven-inch track listing:

Side A - ARCH ENEMY

01. Breaking The Law (JUDAS PRIEST cover)

Side B - KREATOR

01. Iron Destiny

ARCH ENEMY's Michael Amott (guitar) comments: "Super excited about the upcoming tours in Europe and USA with KREATOR, and it's really cool to have this split vinyl seven-inch single coming out to celebrate the extreme metal party of the year!

"Covering the JUDAS PRIEST classic 'Breaking The Law' is obviously not the most original idea, but this is a heavily rearranged version that sounds very ARCH ENEMY, and anyhow, there's no denying that the mighty PRIEST is a great influence on ARCH ENEMY.

"Enjoy this unique and limited KREATOR/ARCH ENEMY release and see you on the road!"

KREATOR's Mille Petrozza (vocals, guitar) adds: "Finally, after all these years, ARCH ENEMY and KREATOR not only tour together, but will also release a split single!

"I have always been a fan of this stuff since these are special little collector's items.

"We chose the song 'Iron Destiny' for this. Lyrically, this is a tribute to the early days of the band, the days when we were young metalheads, discovering the music that we still love to this day.

"KREATOR is looking forward to this run and we hope to see all of you!"
