Press release:

Influential heavy metal titans In Flames have completed work on its new album. Entitled A Sense of Purpose, the long awaited record will see an April 1, 2008 North American release date via Koch Records.

The follow up to the band’s most successful album to date, 2006’s Come Clarity, A Sense of Purpose was recorded at the band’s all new IF Studios in Gothenburg, Sweden. The record was mixed by Toby Wright (Metallica, Slayer) and merges the band’s ambitious, forward thinking songwriting with the familiar harmonized lead guitar melodies that have populated previous IN FLAMES albums such as The Jester Race and Colony.

The roll out song from A Sense of Purpose will be the album’s lead track “The Mirror’s Truth”, which will see release as a European single on March 7 through the band’s European label, Nuclear Blast Records. The track will be made available worldwide on March 11 via iTunes. IN FLAMES have also tagged “The Mirror’s Truth” as the first music video from the new album.

When asked to comment on A Sense of Purpose, the band stated, "We are extremely happy with the end result and are so proud of what we have achieved with the new album. We can't wait for you all to hear it."

A Sense of Purpose’s much-talked-about cover art and layout was designed by artist Alex Pardee (The Used, Kid Robot) and can be viewed at this location. The surreal artwork ties in with A Sense of Purpose’s overall packaging and design and visually tells the tale of a titular character navigating through a labyrinth while avoiding various dangers (representing life’s difficulties) that pepper his journey. Chic art and culture magazine Juxtapose has posted a news highlight on Pardee’s IN FLAMES artwork at this location.

The final track listing for A Sense of Purpose is as follows:

    1.) The Mirror's Truth
    2.) Disconnected
    3.) Sleepless Again
    4.) Alias
    5.) I'm the Highway
    6.) Delight and Angers
    7.) Move Through Me
    8.) The Chosen Pessimist
    9.) Sober and Irrelevant
    10.) Condemned
    11.) Drenched In Fear
    12.) March To The Shore
In support of A Sense of Purpose, IN FLAMES will tour North America as one of the featured acts of "Gigantour 2008." IN FLAMES has been handpicked by Megadeth’s Dave Mustaine to provide direct support to his legendary metal band on the 29 city tour that will also include Children of Bodom, Job For A Cowboy and High on Fire. "Gigantour” will kick off on April 12 in Denver, CO. A full listing of upcoming IN FLAMES tour dates follows this message.
