In Flames Set To Release Tenth Album In June
Anders Fridén/In Flames had this to say: "This is number 10..... Album number 10!!!!! That we even made it this far, that is amazing. Then, to deliver the album of our career, that is something else..... It's fast, slow, heavy and mellow. It's happy, sad, angry and calm. 'Sounds of a playground Fading' is everything we ever done on crack (it's a metaphor boys and girls), it's cask strength whisky when it's THAT perfect moment. Use and abuse!!!!!
"By the way, we are happy to be in bed with Century media. They know the business, we know the music, a perfect match. What can possibly go wrong....ha, ha, ha!!!!!!"
In September 2010 In Flames once again entered their own IF Studios together with Roberto Laghi, Daniel Bergstrand and Örjan Örnkloo to start the recording of the new album. The album 'Sounds Of A Playground Fading' is planned for a June 2011 release.
Around that time, In Flames will play some of the most important European summer festivals (Sonisphere, Rock Am Ring/Rock Im Park, Hellfest, and more), followed by the Mayhem Festival US tour in July and an European tour in Fall/Winter 2011.
