In early 2016, In Flames began recording a new album in Los Angeles, and finished the recording in April.
25 August 2016
In Flames posted a YouTube link to a new song entitled “The End” along with a new profile picture with the In Flames logo accompanied by the word “Battles”. It was later revealed the same day that Battles will be the title of their twelfth studio album, and was released worldwide on 11 November 2016 through Nuclear Blast.
17 September 2016
the band announced on their Facebook page that Joe Rickard, formerly of American rock band RED, who performed session drums on Battles is now the new permanent drummer, replacing Daniel Svensson.
29 November 2016
Peter Iwers announced the tour supporting Battles would be his last with In Flames. This leaves just Anders and Björn as the only members left in the band who have constantly remained in the lineup since the 1990s. Bassist Håkan Skoger, who previously worked with Friden on his side project ‘Passenger’, played live with the band on their first UK tour date in Scotland. The band then recruited bassist Bryce Paul to play bass on their American tour.
The End; The Truth; The Truth (Live in Moscow):
The award-winning filmmaker Luis Téllez is responsible for the innovative concept behind the ‘Here Until Forever’ clip.
Singer Anders Fridén wrote ‘Here Until Forever’ for his son. That’s why it’s a very special In Flames song:
“He’s eight years old. I wrote the play ‘Come Clarity’ for my daughter when she was two. He saw this and asked all the time, ‘Papa, where is my song?’ And now I was ready to write this song to him. But I think the text is open to interpretations. He could be for everyone – somebody you love, missed or to whom you have a special connection. ”
