Swedish metallers IN FLAMES have issued the following update:
"So we have played the last show of the 'Come Clarity' tour. It has been amazing, and the whole band would like to send out a MASSIVE thank you to all of you who came to our shows. Without you guys it would be pretty boring to play live, that’s for sure.
"As you know you can all submit your own photos from any of the IN FLAMES shows you may have been at. All you have to do is email them to firstname.lastname@example.org and they will be posted as soon as possible.
"If you think we are now all going on holiday and taking it easy you are all wrong…we are about to start pre-production/record the new album, which will be released next year at some point, hopefully around spring time. The new album will be recorded in IF Studios in Gothenburg.
"You can follow the entire recording step by step by checking in to www.myspace.com/inflames where a video diary will be shown. A new episode will be posted each Monday.
"The first episode will be up on September 10th so make sure to check in for that.
"Until then, thanks again for making 2006/2007 awesome years for us."
IN FLAMES was honored with the Swedish "Grammis" award in the "Best Hard Rock" category during a ceremony that was held on January 30 at Hovet in Stockholm. A total of five bands were nominated for their most recent releases, all of which came out during 2006. A video clip of IN FLAMES performing the song "Come Clarity" on the Swedish music awards show "Rockbjörnen" on January 11 in Stockholm, Sweden can be viewed below. The band's lineup for the performance included guitarists Björn Gelotte and Jesper Strömblad, who were both absent from the group's most recent U.S. tour.
