Arch Enemy To Release “Sunset Over The Empire” 7″ In May

Arch Enemy will be releasing a new 7″ single titled “Sunset Over The Empire” on May 20. The effort will come with two songs including the title track and “The Judging Eyes.” This news comes as the band are preparing to release their new album “Deceivers“ on July 29. Michael Amott commented:

“I am thrilled that we are releasing our next single ‘Sunset Over The Empire‘ not only digitally everywhere as usual, but also as a physical 7″ vinyl record. I’m a big fan of the vinyl format myself and I think this killer looking 7″ will be a nice collector’s item as it’s a limited run. The B-side is an instrumental we’ve never released before on a record, and the A-side is one of my fave tracks off our new upcoming album ‘Deceivers‘!”

Earth Crisis Finish New 7″ Release “Vegan For The Animals”

Earth Crisis have finished recording a new 7″ release titled “Vegan For The Animals.“ Frontman Karl Buechner said the following about the effort during a recent appearance on “The Meep Meep Podcast“:

“We’re 200% proud to be vegan straight edge and to write songs to this day that literally spell it out. We just did a 7-inch that’s getting released, hopefully, this summer and it’s called ‘Vegan For The Animals‘ and that’s the catch line for the song; nothing will ever change when it comes to that.”
