In Flames’ Website Was Not Really Hacked
Yesterday, In Flames’ website was hacked, and the hackers claimed the band has been “trolling [us] for way too long,” and that they were going to release very valuable information on the site at 6am EST today; it now seems pretty clear that the hacking wasn’t real, but, rather, a PR stunt to announce the name of the band’s new album. Oh, In Flames… you HAVE been trolling us!
ANYWAY, the album is apparently called Siren Charms, and it will be out in September. I’d like to be more excited, but after the last couple of In Flames albums, I’m keeping my expectations low.
Interesting side note: the record label logo that appears below the album title is for Epic, not Century Media, who released 2011’s Sounds of a Playground Fading. So In Flames are a major label band now. Is that good news, bad news, or indifferent news? Debate in the comments section.
