Fresh off of the release of their JUNO Award-winning 2020 full-length album ‘Abyss’, Canadian modern power metal frontrunners UNLEASH THE ARCHERS revisit its stunning predecessor, 2017’s seminal ‘Apex’. In celebration of the album’s five-year anniversary, ‘Apex’ will be available as a limited reissue 2-CD Earbook edition, as well as in Deluxe Digital formats, on November 18 via Napalm Records! Pre-orders for the special edition of ‘Apex’ are available now.

 

Both the 2-CD Earbook and Deluxe Digital versions will include the full original Apex album, plus two new bonus tracks – “Falsewave” and “Acoustipex” – genius reimaginings of original album tracks “False Walls” and “Apex”, respectively, as well as a newly mastered instrumental version of the original album. The bonus tracks will also come on a limited edition single-style 10” vinyl EP available as part of the Earbook edition.

The synthwave reimagining “Falsewave” translates perfectly with the original track’s super moody, midtempo vibes, while “Acoustipex” haunts with gothic folk/country-western cinematic flavor, breathing new life into the ‘Apex’ title track. Hop in your DeLorean and jam to the electric grooves of “Falsewave” now, also listenable via a brand-new lyric video!

 

UNLEASH THE ARCHERS frontwoman Brittney Slayes says:

“Hard to believe it’s been five years since we released ‘Apex’! That record was really the beginning of a new era for us, so we are so excited to finally give it the deluxe treatment it deserves! The new bonus tracks were a lot of fun to create, as they’ve allowed us to show some of our other musical influences more prominently. The earbook is definitely the part I am most excited about though, being that the earbook for ‘Abyss’ was really a sequel to the story from ‘Apex’. Now our listeners can read the full ‘Immortal Saga’ chapter by chapter and discover some new details that were too difficult to convey through the music. And, we can’t forget about the instrumental edition! We’ve had fans asking for it for a long time and we can’t wait to hear the vocal covers and new renditions they come up with! We are just so excited for everyone to get their hands on this new edition – it’s such a great way to celebrate the fifth anniversary of this album that will always remain so special to us!”
