IN FLAMES’ 12th studio album, Battles, which was recorded in Los Angeles by Grammy-nominated producer Howard Benson (My Chemical Romance, Papa Roach, The Used), is available for pre-order TODAY and available November 11 via Eleven Seven Music (North America) and Nuclear Blast (All territories except North America). Those who pre-order the album will instantly get both “The End” and “The Truth” and two more tracks before the official album release on November 11.
“I think it really helped having a producer who could make us focus on what we needed to accomplish and keep us on track,” Anders Fridén says. “This was a very new approach for us because we’ve never let anyone else in the way we did with Howard,” Bjorn Gelotte adds. “We met with a lot of producers prior to starting this album and he seemed like the only guy who didn’t want to change anything; he just wanted to make sure we were making the best In Flames record that we could and it just felt right,” Gelotte continues. “It’s not that we aren’t happy doing things ourselves. We just thought we would try something different because that’s what this band has always been about.” The 12-song collection shows IN FLAMES avoiding proven formulas in favor of trying new things.
Confidence and palpable excitement is dripping all over Battles from the instantly infectious “take the power back” anthem “The Truth” to the jaw-dropping technical brutality of “Through My Eyes” and distinctive groove and climactic chorus of the album’s title track. In other words, the album 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. “There’s something in the fingers of the guys and my voice that’s undeniable, but I really hope that our songwriting is something that can continue to evolve the way it did here in the future.”

3. Like Sand

Recorded in Los Angeles, the 15-track album sees the band taking a new approach while staying true to their vision and encompassing their unique, signature sound. In Flames brought in Grammy-nominated producer Howard Benson (Papa Roach, My Chemical Romance, The Used) as a collaborator on Battles, creating an album that speaks to all In Flames fans alike.
“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 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.
