Anders Fridén of In Flames

Legendary melodic metal act In Flames announce the release of their twelfth full-length studio album Battles, out November 11 via Eleven Seven Music in the North America and Nuclear Blast globally excluding North America. Recorded in Los Angeles, the 15-track album sees the band taking a new approach while staying true to their vision and encompassing their unique, signature sound. In Flames brought in Grammy-nominated producer Howard Benson (Papa Roach, My Chemical Romance, The Used) as a collaborator on Battles, creating an album that speaks to all In Flames fans alike.

“I think being in California really affected this album in the sense that we had a studio in the house that we were staying at and the vibe was really relaxed which lent itself to productivity,” says vocalist Anders Fridén. “It really helped having a producer who could make us focus on what we needed to accomplish and keep us on track,” he adds. “This was a very new approach for us because we’ve never let anyone else in the way we did with Howard,” says guitarist Björn Gelotte.

Confidence and palpable excitement is dripping all over Battles. The instantly infectious “take the power back” anthem “The Truth,” will hit radio airwaves this Friday, but fans can get a first taste of the new album with the unveiling of new track “The End” off the upcoming album. It will be available via streaming partners starting tomorrow 8/26.  Read the rest of this entry »
