Arch Enemy have followed up their first new single in four years, Deceiver, Deceiver, with another brand-new standalone effort: House Of Mirrors.

Says guitarist Michael Amott of the tune: "Musically, this is an idea that has been bouncing around in my head for a while, and finally it got finished. It all started with the guitar motif that kicks off the track, which naturally leads to the galloping ’80s metal feel of the verses. As is always the case with us, we had quite a few different arrangements and demos of this song until it was, dare I say, fckn perfect!"

Vocalist Alissa White-Gluz continues: "House Of Mirrors is a song that twists its way into the human psyche. I wrote the lyrics during a dark time of strict, dystopian lockdown, and I think people will be able to relate to that feeling of being totally alone – but never truly alone – when you are surrounded only by past and future versions of yourself as company."
