In Flames and Hellyeah Announce Co-Headlining Tour of North America


My local Ikea — and, I assume, most, if not all, Ikeas — has these cages outside the store. The purposes of these cages is to have someplace safe to store your purchases while you go grab your car out of the lot and pull it up to the curb, thereby saving yourself the trouble of schlepping anything heavy very far. It’s a nice idea…

…mostly. See, these cages also have a sign on them, and that sign looks like this:


Yes, someone deemed it necessary to include a sign instructing shoppers not to store their baby in the cage. In my imagination, the sign is there because it has to be, because once upon a time some idiot did, in fact, leave an infant in the cage. It’s just as possible, however, that some Swedish executive at Ikea Corporate Headquarters was basically like, “Hey, Americans are pretty stupid, we’d better make sure these morons know not to cage their children.”

Either way, the Ikea Baby Cage dynamic will be re-created in audio form this autumn. That’s when In Flames, metal’s affordable-yet-classy, easy-to-put-together Swedish outfit will co-headling a tour with Hellyeah, metal’s band for stupid Americans who leave their babies in cages.
