Vocalist, Anders Fridén says of the new track release and pre-order: “We’re always eager to release new music that we’ve been waiting so long to share with our fans, so days like today are always special to us. The title track is one of our favorite songs on the album so choosing it to release early was pretty easy. This is our 13th album, but every new piece of music we reveal still brings the same amount of excitement and surrealism that this is what we get to do. We can’t wait to experience these songs live together with you for the first time, but in the meantime, thanks for listening and we hope you enjoy.”
In Flames — guitarist Björn Gelotte, vocalist Anders Fridén, guitarist Niclas Engelin, bassist Bryce Paul Newman and drummer Tanner Wayne — brought some major names on board for
I, The Mask, including industry staples Howard Benson for production, Chris Lord-Alge for mixing andTed Jensen for mastering. Artist Blake Armstrong created the album’s artwork, which is an interpretation of In Flames’ mascot, The Jesterhead.

I, The Mask will undoubtedly showcase why In Flames are one of the biggest bands in the world – never shying away from pushing their artistic boundaries, crafting music that’s as catchy as it is crushing. Formed in 1990, the band are considered one of the forefathers of melodic death metal and the purveyors of the “Gothenburg sound.” With thirteen studio albums under their belt, countless successful tours around the globe playing with the likes of Metallica, Iron Maiden, Megadeth and Deep Purple, with millions of records sold and a massive fanbase worldwide, In Flames have proven to be an unstoppable force. From their 1994 debut, Lunar Strain, onwards, the band’s intricate twin guitar attack, melodic vocals, and superb arrangements have given them a signature sound that has evolved throughout the years. Pre-order I, The Mask here: https://inflames.ffm.to/themask.
