In Flames Announce New Album, Battles + Release First Single, “The End”


In Flames have announced that they’ll release their new album, Battles, on November 11. Here’s the psychedelic album art… mercifully, it features no vagina dentata:

In Flames - Battles

Wisely, the band has also released the first single from the album instead of doing that irritating thing where a band announces their new record and that’s it. We previously heard some of that single, “The End,” in a teaser video, and we were delighted to hear that it actually sounded kinda promising (as opposed to the total drek that has been most of In Flames’ past decade). And “kinda promising” really sums up the whole song: as we hoped, the track isn’t a Clayman level of cool, but it’s a Come Clarity level of cool. Hey, I’ll take it!

Listen to “The End” below, then head to the comments section to weigh in.
