IN FLAMES have been one of the leaders of the underground metal movement for over 10 years now. With over 500,000 records sold and a Main Stage slot on OZZFEST 2005, the time is ripe for this Swedish quintet to rise above the rest. The recent success of their counterparts has paved the wave for more metal bands to reach the mainstream. This includes bands such as KILLSWITCH ENGAGE (who they co-headlined with in 2004), SHADOWS FALL, AS I LAY DYING and LAMB OF GOD. With the February 7th release of Come Clarity, the band has chosen a new label in Ferret Music to not only serve their half a million fans, but to introduce them to a broader audience in heavy music. To reach these diehards, the band will finally call the US their second home by touring North America for more than half of 2006 starting with a headlining tour in January. After sharing the main stage of Ozzfest this summer with bands such as MUDVAYNE and BLACK SABBATH; IN FLAMES are definitely poised to win over even more of the American metal music fans.
