Lasting for a little over a month, the tour kicks off January 12th in Milwaukee, WI and will wrap back around to complete on February 21st in Chicago, IL. A full list of dates can be seen below.

IN FLAMES comments, “In Flames strikes back!!! After a nice but curtailed summer mayhem, we will return to American soil with full force. Expect riffs, sweat and beers so tasty that you're ready to give up everything and move to Gothenburg. Just to have another fix...”

Matt Heafy of TRIVIUM adds, "Trivium can't wait to get out again on the road with In Flames. They are one of our all time favorite bands and together we plan on giving our best shows to the fans."

IN FLAMES’ new album Sounds Of A Playground Fading was released on June 15th via Century Media Records and debuted at an impressive #27 on the Top 200 Billboard Charts selling 13,842 copies in its first week. As said by Music Connection Magazine, “Infusing metal harmonies with melodic breakdowns has never sounded sweeter.” The music video for “Where The Dead Ships Dwell” from the album Sounds Of A Playground Fading can be seen here.
