July.28.2016 ARCH ENEMY announce press conference at WACKEN OPEN AIR!
ARCH ENEMY will play the biggest stage production of their career at next week’s WACKEN OPEN AIR on Saturday, August 6th around midnight, making this the pinnacle of a highly successful album campaign. It all started in March 2014 when the band announced the new singer Alissa White-Gluz and the video for the album title track “War Eternal”, which became the most successful video in the band’s career and reached close to 20 million YouTube views. The album reached the highest US and German chart positions in the band’s career and ARCH ENEMY played over 200 shows in over 40 countries around the world. In late 2014 Jeff Loomis (ex-Nevermore) joined ARCH ENEMY during the world tour with Kreator and in 2015 they played arenas as direct support of Nightwish.
WACKEN OPEN AIR won’t be the last “War Eternal” show (see more dates below) but it’s going to be something special. Therefore, don’t miss their press conference at WACKEN on Friday August 5th at 5:00pm – 5:45pm CET in the press tent / VIP area.

Michael Amott comments: "Already 300 shows in on our current "War Eternal" world tour and it's become painfully obvious that we've been ignoring the UK for far too long. This is about to change in August! Norwich, Sheffield, Cardiff and Southhampton - we're coming for you! Fellow Swedes Soilwork are along for the ride too...get ready for the Scandinavian Metal attack!"
