Swedish metallers In Flames
have confirmed entering Berlin's Hansa Studios (Depeche Mode
) to kick off recording sessions for their eleventh album, tentatively due in early 2014.
Singer Anders Friden
couldn't hide the excitement of recording at such iconic studio where Iggy Pop
's "Lust for Life
" or David Bowie
" came to be.
"When I visited Hansa Studios earlier this year, I got goosebumps,"
Friden told Expressen
). "There is so much history both inside and surrounding the studio and I want to be a part of that. Magic has been created here and hopefully that will affect us."
Earlier in August, the five-piece announced
commencing the writing process for the new release, so it would seem that everything is heading along as planned among the In Flames ranks.
"We have to do another record; well, don't have to, it sounds like
[I'm being punished], but I really enjoy that process,"
guitarist Bjorn Gelotte
told KQXR 100.3 the X Rocks
back in late May. "It kind of sucks a bit because I really like touring here, have a lot of friends over here and there's a lot of people coming out to the shows. It's gonna be sad to go home, but we know we're going to be back and do it the next, I don't know, 25 years."
The latest In Flames studio effort, "Sounds of a Playground Fading
," was released in June 2011 via Century Media Records, debuting at No. 27 on the US Billboard 200 chart. Last month, the band premiered the title track video, check it out below.
