    In Flames have announced their 14th studio album Foregone, arriving February 10th, and shared the first of two title tracks.

    It marks the first post-pandemic full-length album from the Swedish melodic death metal vets. As heard on “Forgone Pt. 1,” the band is back with a vengeance. Compact and driving rhythms are fused with tuneful riffs — an In Flames staple — that balance out the harsh snarls of vocalist Anders Fridén.

    “Going into the Foregone sessions, we wanted to make a record that was heavily guitar-driven, and that had a strong foundation between the bass and drums,” Friden remarked in the press release. “We still approached our songwriting the same way, as we always have, as a juxtaposition between melody and aggression. That’s the DNA of our music. From the lyrical end of things, there was no shortage of inspiration to draw from, especially the concept of time.”

    With the pandemic creating a perceived effect of lost time, Friden states that “humanity as a whole was forced to slow down.” He further elaborated on the album’s lyrical concepts: “Time is a constant, but what do we do with it and how we perceive it varies. Especially now looking at where the world seems to be headed faster than ever before.”

    In Flames are currently on a US tour with Fit for an Autopsy. The next show is tonight (September 15th) in Fort Wayne, Indiana. The bands will stay out together until a September 30th show in Lincoln, Nebraska.

    On October 2nd, In Flames will then join Meshuggah for a run of dates starting with a concert in Denver. That leg runs through October 16th in Atlanta. The following night (October 17th) in Tampa, Florida, will see In Flames linking up with Born of Osiris and Darkest Hour for another leg of dates that wraps up on October 28th in Reading, Pennsylvania. Get tickets to In Flames’ upcoming shows via Ticketmaster.
