2017 will once again be a loud year for the Swedish metal institution, In Flames! Today they kick off the year with a UK arena tour as special guests to Avenged Sevenfold, followed by a European headline tour in select cities (see below) this spring. In addition to their busy touring schedule ahead, their recent album ‘Battles’ has now been nominated for the Swedish Grammis as ‘Hard Rock/Metal Album of the Year’, marking it the group’s 8th nomination to date. The awards will take place in Stockholm on February 28th. Other bands nominated in this category include Dark Tranquility and Ghost.
The band states: “We are very honoured to have received our 8th Swedish Grammis nomination for our newest album, ‘Battles’. We can’t thank our fans enough, who, throughout their years of support and dedication to our music, have kept IN FLAMES alive and inspired. Jesterheads, this one’s for you!”
