Yesterday night I got the opportunity to sit down with In Flames guitarist Niclas Engelin during their current tour alongside UK thrash metal band Sylosis, Hellyeah, and Lamb Of God. We discussed the idea of which region has the best crowds, what the Randy Blythe arrest means for touring bands, his first guitar, his favorite horror movie, and his favorite albums of the year! You can check this exclusive video interview below!
In Flames has had to cancel all remaining Rockstar Mayhem Energy Festival tour dates due to an illness in the family. It sucks because I was really looking forward to seeing them again (the last time I saw them was when the toured with Chimaira and Soilwork). However, I fully understand the need for family to come first. Therefore, best of luck to the In Flames family and I wish for all the best.
With a history as long and celebrated as In Flames, each new album is met by fans with great expectations and high hopes. “Will it be as good as The Jester Race or Clayman?” “Will it be something weird and a total deviation from what I’m used to?” Well, considering the fact that In Flames have been releasing studio albums since 1993, it’s impossible to ask them to stay with one sound. First of all, it gets boring for the listener and, second, musicians can’t be pigeonholed like that. Progression and expansion are a natural part of life as well as music. So it is with In Flames 10th studio release, Sounds of a Playground Fading. But does this expansion and progression work? Check after the jump.
Move over Katy Perry, your fireworks ain’t got NOTHIN’ on In Flames! Wanna know why? Because they actually got fireworks and didn’t just CG them in, you hussy. I’m sorry, that was probably uncalled for……tramp. Moving along! After the jump is the new video from In Flames for Deliver Us. Check it out and get ready for Sounds of a Playground Fading, which comes out June 21st.
In Flames have released a new studio clip in anticipation for their upcoming album, ‘Sounds of a Playground Fading‘. In this clip, the members discuss pretty openly their feelings about guitarist Jesper leaving the band and how it has affected them. You also get to see what they do to pass the time while one of the members is busy recording.
In Flames have released the album artwork for their upcoming album ‘Sounds Of A Playground Fading‘ as well as the official track listing (after the jump). The album is due to come out June 21st (thanks xreinhartx for the heads up). How many of you are planning on picking it up?
In Flames, who recently signed to Century Media Records (awesome decision, in my opinion), have announced the upcoming single ‘Deliver Us‘, which comes off of their soon to be released album, ‘Sounds Of A Playground Fading‘. Check out the single artwork below and keep your ears peeled for ‘Deliver Us‘, which will be released digitally on May 10th.
