The latest installment of the “Iron City Rocks” podcast (web site) features an interview with drummer Daniel Svensson of Swedish metallers IN FLAMES. The podcast is now available for streaming using the audio player below.
In a recent interview with Full Metal Jackie‘s nationally syndicated radio show, IN FLAMES frontman Anders Fridén stated about the band’s plans for the next studio album: “I wish we can write on the road but we can’t. We have all the time in the world, but I don’t know — too much beer to drink. We’re looking into writing and recording something at the end of [this] year, I think. So we’re hoping to have a release in early 2014. It seems so far away, but it’s not.”
IN FLAMES has just kicked off a U.S. headlining tour with support from DEMON HUNTER, ALL SHALL PERISH and BATTLECROSS.
IN FLAMES‘ tenth album, “Sounds Of A Playground Fading” (Century Media), sold around 14,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 27 on The Billboard 200 chart.
IN FLAMES‘ previous CD, “A Sense of Purpose” (Koch) opened with 20,000 units to land at No. 28. This was slightly less than the opening tally of “Come Clarity” (Ferret), which shifted just under 24,000 copies in February 2006 to enter the chart at position No. 58.
