Swedish melodeath vets In Flames recently re-signed with Nuclear Blast, the label they were signed to in the '90s and 2000s, and now they've announced their new album -- their fourteenth overall -- which is titled Foregone and due February 10, 2023. The album features recent singles "State of Slow Decay" and "The Great Deceiver," along with the just-released "Foregone Pt. 1," and all three songs find the band's classic sound in fine form. We've also teamed with the band on an exclusive white 2xLP vinyl variant, limited to just 300 copies. Pre-order yours now while they last. Here's a mock-up of the variant:

Speaking about the album, vocalist Anders Fridén says:

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!
