Swedish metallers IN FLAMES will perform in South Africa in March 2012. They will play on Saturday, March 10 in Johannesburg and on Sunday, March 11 in Cape Town as part of next year’s Ramfest.
A short video message from IN FLAMES vocalist Anders Fridén announcing the band’s participation in Ramfest can be seen below.
IN FLAMES will release the second digital single off its new album, “Sounds Of A Playground Fading”, next month. Due on November 15, “Where The Dead Ships Dwell” will include three completely different remixes. With versions by German rapper Casper, drum-and-bass act THE QEMISTS and Kristof Bathory, vocalist of the black metal band DAWN OF ASHES, there should be something everyone can enjoy.
IN FLAMES‘ tenth album, “Sounds Of A Playground Fading”, 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.
