The band's 14th album rekindles a flame introduced by the vivid art of Blake Armstrong.
On February 10, 2023, Sweden's In Flames will release Foregone via Nuclear Blast Records — a culmination of the band's historical years treading down multiple sonic paths. To ease listeners into next year's record, the band share Part 1 of title track Foregone, which comes accompanied by a perplexing visualizer created by Ukrainian graphic designer Oleg Rooz using AI. Expect to hear it on tour this fall.
Frontman Anders Fridén comments:
"Going into the Foregone sessions, we wanted to make a record that was heavily guitar-driven, and that had a strong foundation between the bass and drums. We still approached our songwriting the same way, as we always have, as a juxtaposition between melody and aggression. That's the DNA of our music. From the lyrical end of things, there was no shortage of inspiration to draw from, especially the concept of time.
Humanity as a whole was forced to slow down and take breather. In that break, many of us spent time evaluating and reprioritizing. Time is a constant, but what do we do with it and how we perceive it varies. Especially now looking at where the world seems to be headed faster than ever before.
It's crazy that after everything we are still here and on our fourteenth album. I feel that we've found a great balance between the past, the present and the future with Forgone. This is a new era of In Flames!"
