Arch Enemy will be kicking off their upcoming North American tour with Kreator, Huntress, and Starkill in a couple of weeks. If that lineup wasn’t enough to get you to attend maybe the following announcement will convince you to go. Arch Enemy and Kreator have announced that they will be collaborating on a limited tour-only 7″. If that last statement is lost on you because you’re awestruck by the news or something, that means you need to be at one of the tour stops to purchase the pressing.

The 7″ will be limited to 500 copies on transparent red vinyl in America and 500 on dark red vinyl for the European leg of the tour. Side A of the split will be Arch Enemy’s cover of Judas Priest’s “Breaking The Law” while side B will be Kreator’s “Iron Destiny”. You can get all the juicy details along with some comments by guitarist Michael Amott and Kreator’s Mille Petrozza in the following Facebook post to Arch Enemy’s page below. The post includes dates to the complete tour and links to purchase tickets, records, etc. The complete tour itinerary for both the North American and European legs of the tour are also included below in case you’re not particularly interested in reading the Facebook post (that and I already included them in the post and don’t want to delete them. You think hitting ctrl+c followed by ctrl+v is easy? It’s not.).
