MUSIC NEWS: In Flames Announce Fourteenth Studio Album & Release New Single ‘Foregone Pt. 1’
In Flames have announced their fourteenth studio album Foregone, due for release on 10th February 2023 via Nuclear Blast.
“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. 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,” comments frontman Anders Fridén.
“Humanity as a whole was forced to slow down and take a breather. In that break, many of us spent time evaluating and reprioritising. Time is a constant, but what 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.
“It’s crazy that after everything we are still here and on our fourteenth album. I feel that we’ve found a great balance between the past, the present and the future with Foregone. This is a new era of In Flames!”
In Flames have also released their new single Forgone Pt. 1.
