Swedish metal band In Flames has re-signed with Nuclear Blast, extending their partnership on a worldwide level.
Marcus Hammer, the managing director of Nuclear Blast, said: “We are extremely happy to welcome In Flames back into the NBR family on a worldwide basis. Here’s the message to the metal world: A new metal masterpiece is about to drop and you can guarantee there is no decay visible. Quite the contrary. In Flames and Nuclear Blast will kill it together—once again and stronger than ever!”
Nathan Barley Phillips, senior A&R, said: “As a dedicated long-serving Jesterhead myself, it gives me great pleasure to represent In Flames as they embark on this exciting new chapter of their illustrious career. I cannot wait for you all to hear what this incredible band have in store!”
Following this news, In Flames have released a new single titled “State of Slow Decay.” Watch the video below.
The song, which was premiered live at Sweden Rock festival, comes accompanied by a video that features the band performing the new track on an unconventional stage.
“We have always done our own thing without any pressure from the outside world, BUT being back with Nuclear Blast worldwide has for sure inspired us to write a host of new material that includes the past, the present, and the future,” frontman Anders Fridén said. “‘State of Slow Decay’ includes everything that In Flames are known for. But it’s more than just a song, it’s a fucking statement. I couldn’t be happier to release this as a taste of what’s to come.”
In Flames will embark on a U.S. tour in September 2022. All dates are below. VIP packages are available here. Stay tuned for more touring news, as well.
