Sworn enemy will release their 11th studio album, deceiversGoing through Media Records of the Century on July 29, 2022. The group today released another new single and music video for “Handshake With Hell!” Pre-orders are live for the new album now. The track is streaming now and the video, directed by Patrick Ulleeseen below.

Michael Amott (Guitars) comments:
“Our new single/video ‘Handshake with Hell’ started with riffs and melodies that I thought would suit each other, and when I showed the parts I had to Daniel (Erlandsson, drums), he also felt it had potential. We worked on a demo of it, developing it a lot more together, and once we got to a point where we felt it was ready, we sent the instrumental version to Alissa in Canada. She came back with this really cool approach to vocals and lyrics which elevated the song even further. For me, it’s a standout track on the new album “Deceivers”, which really shows what we are capable as songwriters and performers in 2022 – this is definitely one of the new songs I’m dying to play live on tour!”

Alissa White-Gluz adds“When Michael and Daniel showed me the instrumental they had concocted, I had a ton of vocal ideas to complete the song. ‘Handshake with Hell’ has a classic heavy metal feel to it, and it was a good time to release some classic heavy metal vocals to match. I think the result is really interesting and eye-catching!
