In Flames a publié son nouvel album I, The Mask le 1er mars 2019 via Nuclear Blast. Le groupe est actuellement en tournée américaine en compagnie de Within Temptation, qui fait la promotion de son nouvel album intitulé Resist.
Niclas had to stay home and deal with some personal things. We’ve known Chris for 17 years. He was in a band called Jag Panzer, and they opened up for us back then, so we’ve been friends since. And when Niclas called us, like 48 hours before we had to leave, and he went to the hospital — he had to. So we didn’t wanna cancel. Our music is made for two guitars, and we didn’t wanna have one guitar playing and everything else on a backing track — we wanted to have someone playing it. We happily found out that Chris was free and he came out and we had a couple of days’ rehearsal in Austin before the tour started in Houston. And, yeah, it’s going great. We’ve known HIM, as I said, for a long time, so we knew it would work on a social level. And his guitar playing is obviously phenomenal. – Anders Fridén
