In Flames have signed with Century Media for their upcoming album, Sounds of a Playground Fading. For those of you keeping track, this will be their fourth label in as many albums, following eOne, Ferret and a long run on Nuclear Blast. The album is due sometime in June, at which point the band will play European festivals. The following month, they’ll hop on the road with the Rockstar Energy Mayhem Festival. Here’s Anders Friden’s statement about signing with CM.
“This is number 10….. Album number 10!!!!! That we even made it this far, that is amazing. Then, to deliver the album of our career, that is something else….. It’s fast, slow, heavy and mellow. It’s happy, sad, angry and calm. ‘Sounds of a playground Fading’ is everything we ever done on crack (it’s a metaphor boys and girls), it’s cask strength whisky when it’s THAT perfect moment. Use and abuse!!!!!
By the way, we are happy to be in bed with Century Media. They know the business, we know the music, a perfect match. What can possibly go wrong….ha, ha, ha!!!!!!”
