After teasing previously, the group now reveals their thirteenth studio album, titled I, The Mask, that will be released on March 1st, 2019 via Nuclear Blast (worldwide, excluding North America) and Eleven Seven Music (North America). The album artwork was created by artist Blake Armstrong and depicts a unique interpretation of the band's mascot, The Jesterhead. In Flames also debuted not one but two new songs, so check them out now!







The story of the cover will be revealed via the full album artwork on March 1st, which coincides with each song on the album.

01. Voices
02. I, The Mask
03. Call My Name
04. I Am Above
05. Follow Me
06. (This is Our) House
07. We Will Remember
08. In This Life
09. Burn
10. Deep Inside
11. All The Pain
12. Stay With Me

Pre-orders for the album will begin January 11th offering "I Am Above" and "(This Is Our) House" as instant downloads. The 12-track album reunites them with Grammy-nominated producer Howard Benson (My Chemical Romance, Motörhead) who also produced 2016's Battles. Additionally, the album was mixed by Grammy award winner Chris Lord-Alge (Cheap Trick, Linkin Park) and mastered by Grammy mastering engeneer, Ted Jensen (Pantera, Eagles, Guns N' Roses).

"This album is really a special one to us. Since our last record, Battles, we've established our own annual festival in Sweden and have been touring non-stop worldwide, creating an even stronger bond with our fans. You could say it was a big part of our inspiration for this album. It's been such a long journey that just keeps going and growing; We feel extremely thankful for that, and for the support that makes it possible. We dedicate our 13th album, I, The Mask to our fans who allow us to keep making music and playing it every night. In Jesterheads We Trust." - Anders Fridén from In Flames.

A poignant video for "I Am Above" has also been revealed, which features famous Swedish actor Martin Wallström (Mr. Robot). The video takes place in a pitch black room with Martin who eerily lip syncs the metal ballad with expressive facial gestures that capture the song's emotion. Meanwhile, the lyric video for track '(This Is Our) House' features unseen footage from the band's first annual Swedish festival, Borgholm Brinner (Borgholm Is Burning).

"I was very intrigued by doing something I've never done before and honored getting the question from In Flames. Also trying to portray a lively song in a dark room, sitting in front of a camera was challenging, but I felt strongly for the song and the lyrics, so that was a comfort." - Martin Wallström from Mr. Robot.

Additionally, In Flames announced their UK plus Europe headline tour that kicks off on April 3rd in Glasgow concluding on April 18 in Zurich. Special guests to be announced soon.

I miss Jesper again and again until I take look at Cyrha and OMG do I feel confused


That was disappointing. I was expecting some Dimension Zero, got that shitty poppy crap.


the problem is not that it's poppy or catchy, it's that it is uninteresting, bland, heard it all before kind of thing.

Maybe I didn't express myself well enough, because that's what I was trying to say. By "shitty poppy crap" I mean generic riffs with predictable song structures and a boy band singer. Being catchy is never a problem to me, as long as you're not too cheesy or shallow.

It's just too confusing that a guy which wrote The Jester Race has been able to deliver such a mess, I'm still recovering.

Maybe the theory is that he is just unable to write songs anymore and just plays guitar for anyone who wishes..Peter Iwers just lasted a couple of months in that circus.

Confusing as shit.

That happens with a lot of bands. They just don't have as much fresh ideas as they had in the beginning after releasing so many albums, but that's their income, so they keep doing it, otherwise they would have to work a normal job.
