IN FLAMES - release "I, The Mask"! - 2019-03-01

2019-03-01 - "The best IN FLAMES album since 'Soundtrack To Your Escape'."
ROCK HARD (IT), Emanuele Biani

"Definitely a contender for the Top Ten lists of 2019's best albums"
METAL HAMMER (D), Matthias Weckmann

"Old School magic, fresh heaviness: "I, The Mask" emits a metallic grandeur like you last saw it on IN FLAMES' 'Reroute To Remain'."
SONIC SEDUCER (D), Björn Springorum

Legendary Swedish visionaries IN FLAMES release their thirteenth studio album, titled »I, The Mask« via Nuclear Blast (worldwide, excl. North America) and E7M (Eleven Seven Music, North America) out now here on digital and deluxe CD that includes 1 bonus track. Additionally, the band is releasing a 2 LP limited edition vinyl that includes a Jesterhead pop-up, as well as a mailorder edition with Jesterhead latex mask.

Kicking off with the pounding anthem, 'Voices', the 12-track album takes you through a journey of the band’s signature melodic sound. From the anthemic riffing on the ballad 'Call My Name' to the relentless guitars on 'Burn' and sweetly syncopated groove of 'I Am Above', »I, The Mask« sees the band stretching out musically and crafting music that's as catchy as it is crushing.

“I love the act of creating something from nothing and then getting to travel the world and play these songs and see how they affect people. It’s extremely rewarding to hear how a certain song moves someone and then you talk to someone else and learn that it affected them in a profoundly different way. The dynamic between the creator and the fans and what they bring to the table is such an amazing feeling, so that's a big part of our drive. To make something and share it with the world, that's what we were meant to do.” - Anders Fridén.

“For »Battles« I wrote a lot of the material at home first, but for this one, Anders and I really wanted to just get in a room together and see where it would take us. I think this process worked really well because a lot of the lyrics fed off the music, or Anders would come up with a really powerful line and it would inspire a riff, so there was a lot of symbiosis between us in the songwriting.” - Björn Gelotte.

The record reunites them with multi GRAMMY nominated producer Howard Benson (MY CHEMICAL ROMANCE, MOTÖRHEAD) who also produced 2016's »Battles«. Additionally, the album is mixed by GRAMMY award mixer, Chris Lord-Alge (CHEAP TRICK, LINKIN PARK) and mastered by GRAMMY award mastering engineer, Ted Jensen (PANTERA, EAGLES, GUNS N' ROSES).
