Marcus Hammer, the managing director of Nuclear Blast, states:
“We are extremely happy to welcome In Flames back into the NBR family on a worldwide basis. Here’s the message to the metal world: A new metal masterpiece is about to drop and you can guarantee there is no decay visible. Quite the contrary; In Flames and Nuclear Blast will kill it together – once again and stronger than ever!”
Nathan Barley Phillips, Senior A&R, comments:
“As a dedicated long-serving Jesterhead myself, it gives me great pleasure to represent In Flames as they embark on this exciting new chapter of their illustrious career. I cannot wait for you all to hear what this incredible band have in store!“
Following this groundbreaking news, In Flames have today released a crushing new single titled ‘State Of Slow Decay‘. The song, which was premiered live at Sweden Rock festival, comes accompanied by a video that features the band performing their new track on an unconventional stage.
Anders Fridén adds on ‘State Of Slow Decay‘:
“We have always done our own thing without any pressure from the outside world, BUT being back with Nuclear Blast worldwide has for sure inspired us to write a host of new material that includes the past, the present and the future. ‘State of Slow Decay’ includes everything that In Flames are known for, but it’s more than just a song, it’s a fucking statement. I couldn’t be happier to release this as a taste of what’s to come.”
