In Flames Announce 'Battles' Album, Premiere First Song: In Flames News

In Flames

On Friday In Flames Announce 'Battles' Album, Premiere First Song was a top story. Here is the recap: (Metal Hammer) In Flames have announced that they'll release their new album entitled Battles later this year. It will be the Swedish outfit's 12th album, with the follow-up to 2014's Siren Charms set to launch on November 11 via Eleven Seven Music.

Guitarist Bjorn Gelotte reports that the record has a very different feel to their previous material - and he puts that partly down to where they recorded the album.

He tells Decibel Magazine: "Siren Charms had a very dark vibe to it. We recorded it at a cold, damp and dark time during the year in Berlin so it gave it a certain melancholy to the record.

"Now, recording in Los Angeles with the sunshine, it's a different energy. The writing process was different this time, too - that I would like for us to continue to explore."

Crediting Grammy-nominated producer Howard Benson with his work on Battles, Gelotte adds: "Working with Howard and his team was great. I got stressed taking a break for even five minutes because they were always ready to go for the next take and kept my energy up."

In Flames have given fans the first taste of what they can expect from the album by releasing a stream of the track The End. Listen to it - here.
