In Flames Premiere “State Of Slow Decay” Music Video, Announce North American Tour

In Flames have premiered a new video for their new song “State Of Slow Decay.” Anders Fridén commented:

“We have always done our own thing without any pressure from the outside world, BUT being back with Nuclear Blast worldwide has for sure inspired us to write a host of new material that includes the past, the present and the future. ‘State Of Slow Decay‘ includes everything that In Flames are known for, but it’s more than just a song, it’s a fucking statement. I couldn’t be happier to release this as a taste of what’s to come.”

Members of each band commented:

Megadeth‘s Dave Mustaine:

“‘The Metal Tour of The Year‘ is exactly what it sounds like – a night of some of the best heavy metal bands in the world – live and loud. Anyone who came to a show last year knows what I mean, only this one’s going be even better. Do not miss out.”

Lamb Of God‘s Randy Blythe:

“It was great to get out on the road for an incredible tour last summer with Megadeth, Trivium and Hatebreed so we figured we’d do it again! We look forward to hitting new cities with Megadeth, Trivium and In Flames, who we’re happy to have over for leg 2!”

Trivium‘s Matt Heafy:

“‘The Metal Tour Of The Year‘ was one of the strongest, most incredible Metal tours in ages – it’s namesake nothing but accurate. How do you follow that up? By doing it again – even bigger, even better, and have it play everywhere it didn’t on the first leg. MTOTYII – let’s do this.”

In Flames‘s Anders Fridén:

“We are excited to finally be able to join our dear friends in Megadeth, Lamb of God, and Trivium on this year’s, ‘Metal Tour of The Year‘! We can’t wait to be back on the road in America and to reunite with you all. Don’t miss this tour it’s a juggernaut.”
