IN FLAMES Share Big Plans for 2015, Acoustic TV Performance


In Flames, fresh off a successful co-headlining run with their fellow countrymen in Opeth, will embark on the second leg of North American touring in support of their latest effort, Siren Charms, out now. The band will be spending the majority of 2015 touring North America.

In Flames will start the year off by playing 21 headline shows in the U.S. and Canada in February and March, with a slew of North American festival dates booked through the rest of the spring, including Rock on the Range, Carolina Rebellion and Welcome to Rockville.

For the upcoming Winter 2015 headline run, All That Remains will serve as direct support. Wovenwar will open all dates.

About the trek, guitarist Björn Gelotte said, “It’s great to be back with Wovenwar. They did a great job supporting us in Europe; therefore, we are looking forward to take them out again in their home territory. Having All That Remains joining us as the main support means we’ll have a high energy package that we can’t wait to come back to U.S. with.”

As noted, 2015 will be quite a busy year for the melodic rockers, with the new Siren Charms single “Paralyzed” currently at active rock radio.

Of “Paralyzed,” frontman Anders Friden said, “This is what we as In Flames are known for these days and the song meant to be listened to… loud!”

Additionally, the band recently performed an acoustic version of the album’s first single “Through Oblivion” on Skavlan, a late night, mainstream TV program in their native Sweden.

“We had a great experience performing at Skavlan,” said Friden. “It was the very first time we did an acoustic show on TV and was also the first time we ever did a real acoustic performance, to be honest. The most memorable thing about the show, though, was getting Desmond Tutu, ABBA’s Anni Frid Lyngstad and Elvis Costello to show off their growling skills in the interview portion. It was a true highlight of our career.”

The acoustic performance is below:
