Legendary melodic metal act, IN FLAMES, have announced the release of their twelfth full-length studio album, Battles, out November 11th via Eleven Seven Music in North America and Nuclear Blast globally excluding North America.

Recorded in Los Angeles, the 15-track album sees the band taking a new approach while staying true to their vision and encompassing their unique, signature sound. IN FLAMES brought in Grammy-nominated producer Howard Benson (PAPA ROACH, MY CHEMICAL ROMANCE, THE USED) as a collaborator on BattlesIN FLAMES fans alike.

“I think being in California really affected this album in the sense that we had a studio in the house that we were staying at and the vibe was really relaxed which lent itself to productivity,” says vocalist Anders Fridén. “It really helped having a producer who could make us focus on what we needed to accomplish and keep us on track,” he adds.

“This was a very new approach for us because we've never let anyone else in the way we did with Howard,” says guitarist Björn Gelotte.

Confidence and palpable excitement is dripping all over Battles. The instantly infectious “take the power back” anthem “The Truth”, will hit radio airwaves this Friday, but fans can get a first taste of the new album with the unveiling of new track “The End” off the upcoming album, which is streaming below.

Battles sees the band making the hooks sharper, the riffs tighter and honing the overall attack in a way that parallels their legendary live shows in an unparalleled fashion. “When people hear this album I think they're going to instantly know that it's the new IN FLAMES without us repeating the same song over and over, and that's something I'm incredibly proud of,” Fridén says.

Since forming in Gothenburg, Sweden in 1990, IN FLAMES have had six albums debut in the top ten in Sweden, including two #1 debuts. They have toured the globe countless times, performing alongside some of today’s biggest rock and metal acts including, METALLICA, JUDAS PRIEST, IRON MAIDEN, and MEGADETH, and have held several mainstage and headline spots at various music festivals around the world including, Ozzfest, Download Festival, Graspop, Taste Of Chaos, Hellfest and Rock Am Ring/Im Park amongst many others.
