In Flames Announce 12th Studio Album 'Battles' + Reveal Trailers...

Confidence and palpable excitement is dripping all over 'Battles'

"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 In Flames 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 today, and fans can get a first taste of the new album with the unveiling of the new track 'The End' off the upcoming album.

On Friday, legendary melodic metal act In Flames released its first double single from the new studio album Battles, out November 11 (through Nuclear Blast) together with a lyric video for 'The End'. Now the band members talk about their choice of releasing not only one but two new songs at the same time and why they picked the tracks 'The Truth' and 'The End' in the below trailer...

Battles sees the band making the hooks sharper, the riffs tighter and honing the overall attack in a way that parallels their legendary live shows in an unparalleled fashion. “When people hear this album I think they're going to instantly know that it's the new In Flames without us repeating the same song over and over, and that's something I'm incredibly proud of,” Fridén says.
