Things keep getting more exciting for IN FLAMES. The band’s newest release Sounds Of A Playground Fading was just certified Gold in their native home of Sweden, the band is currently on a highly successful tour with Trivium, Ghost, Rise To Remain and Insense, and now IN FLAMES has been confirmed for Germany’s prestigious Wacken Open Air 2012!
“We are happy to announce that we will headline the Friday night at Wacken 2012. It’s gonna be great. Expect loads of pyros, loads of good music and five beer drinking heavy metal guys on stage.”
See the band’s Wacken profile here.
Before playing a massive show in Gothenburg’s Scandinavium IN FLAMES invited Trivium’s Matt Heafy for a dinner at 2112, the restaurant of bassist Peter Iwers and guitarist Björn Gelotte. Check out an entertaining clip here and see what Matt Heafy (vocals/guitar) from Trivium and Anders Fridén (vocals) from IN FLAMES thought about the food and drinks – apart from some other fun stories.
Next on their agenda will be the UK (with Trivium taking over headlining duties) on the Metal Hammer Defenders Of The Faith-tour.
After a short break around Christmas IN FLAMES will tour North America with Trivium, Veil Of Maya and Kyng in early 2012 before heading for Australia’s prestigious Soundwave Festival tour. For April/May 2012 they have announced a very exclusive Scandinavian club tour as a special treat for their supportive Scandinavian fans.
