Arch Enemy recently unveiled the one-minute track of The Shitlickers cover song, “The Leader (Of the Fuckin’ Assholes),” and while we aren’t entirely sure if this will be included on their forthcoming album, Will To Power, we did enjoy this surprising direction. However, that wasn’t all they planned to share this week. Today (14), these metallers unleashed a brand new song and video. “The World Is Yours,” is the first song officially taken from the upcoming album which will arrive on September 8th via Century Media Records.
Guitarist Michael Amott describes the song as:
“We’ve been hard at work on the new album for a while now and we’re proud to present the first taste of new Arch Enemy music in over three years with our new single and video, ‘The World Is Yours’! This was the first song I wrote for the upcoming ‘Will To Power’ album and Daniel [Erlandsson, drums] helped me arrange and finish it up. One of many songs we co-wrote and co-produced this time around. We had a blast recording together with the full band in the south of Sweden and then mixing with Jens Bogren, who did a superb mix and mastering — in my opinion even surpassing the epic sound on our previous record, ‘War Eternal’. People that have heard this song in particular are saying it’s got the classic anthemic Arch Enemy vibe going on, and I think they might be right about that… Looking forward to playing it live on stage later this summer!”
