Published Nov 08, 2011If you're a fan of long-running Swedish metal unit In Flames tenth and latest album, Sounds of a Playground Fading, which plied hard-edged riffs and harmonized dual guitar leads, then you'll get your chance to see the new songs live and in the flesh when the band cross the pond for a North American tour early next year.
Come January, the metalheads will take off on a headlining tour that will take them all over Canada and the U.S. Stops scheduled on this side of the border include Winnipeg, Edmonton, Calgary, Vancouver, Toronto and Montreal. You can see the schedule down below.
For their part, In Flames seem set on blowing you away, not to mention have you contemplating packing your bags for Sweden.
"Expect riffs, sweat and beers so tasty that you're ready to give up everything and move to Gothenburg. Just to have another fix," they wrote in a statement. So, does that mean the first round's on them?
Joining the band on all dates are Florida's Trivium, as well as Veil of Maya and Kyng.
