New Album Battles out November 11 via Eleven Seven Music
Following the announcement of the November 11th release of their 12th studio LP, Battles, Sweden’s metal/rock pioneers, IN FLAMES have released the lyric video for lead single, “The Truth” via Sirius Octane, OUT NOW. WATCH the video HERE. With a pounding, anthem-like force, “The Truth” is instantly infectious, motivating the listener with a “take-the-power-back” mantra.
Last month, Decibel Magazine premiered a first offering from Battles, with the release of “The End.” Both songs, recorded in Los Angeles with Grammy-nominated producer Howard Benson (My Chemical Romance, Papa Roach, The Used), were part of a new approach of collaboration for the band. The album sees the band staying true to their signature sound, and will speak to all IN FLAMES fans alike.
Since forming in Gothenburg, Sweden in 1990, IN FLAMES have had six albums debut in the top ten in Sweden, including two #1 debuts. They have toured the globe countless times, performing alongside some of today’s biggest rock and metal acts, including METALLICA, JUDAS PRIEST, IRON MAIDEN, and MEGADETH, and have held several mainstage and headline spots at various music festivals around the world, including Ozzfest, Download Festival, Graspop, Taste of Chaos, Hellfest and Rock Am Ring / Im Park, amongst many others.
