IN FLAMES, TRIVIUM and DEVILDRIVER will be hitting the road together in late January for a full U.S. tour. No dates, cities or venues have been confirmed just yet, but the trek is expected to run through the end of February.
As previously reported, IN FLAMES's new album, "Come Clarity", is scheduled for a February 7, 2006 North American release through Ferret Records. The CD will be issued in Europe on February 6, 2006 via Nuclear Blast Records.
The follow-up to 2004's "Soundtrack to Your Escape", "Come Clarity" was mixed at Tonteknik studio in Umeå, Sweden and is "the best one we've ever done," according to IN FLAMES guitarist Jesper Strömblad. "It's kind of a mixture between the new stuff and the old stuff," Strömblad told Greece's Metal Temple webzine in a recent interview. "Like the previous two albums were a little bit experimental for us, we changed producers and we changed studios. So we took all the good stuff from the old stuff and the new and we did this album and it's brilliant. It's awesome. . . Musically it's more up tempo, more melodic to show that we have so much more to give and we're really hungry. The best album is yet to come."
IN FLAMES recently completed a U.S. tour as one of the main-stage acts at this year's Ozzfest. A video for the new album's opening track, "Take This Life", was shot last week with director Patric Ullaeus (DIMMU BORGIR, LACUNA COIL).
