IN FLAMES Drummer: 'We Have Nothing Written' For Next Studio Album

The Age Of Metal conducted an interview with drummer Daniel Svensson of Swedish metallers IN FLAMES on October 30 at Comerica Theatre in Phoenix, Arizona during the band's North American tour with LAMB OF GOD. You can now watch the chat below.

Asked about the progress of the songwriting sessions for the follow-up to last year's "Sounds Of A Playground Fading", Svensson said, "We're not a band that writes albums on the road. We tried, but it didn't really work out for us. So we will continue touring on ['Sounds Of A Playground Fading'] until this touring cycle is done, and then we will meet up and write the new material. So far, we have nothing written for the upcoming album. I mean, we will still tour for awhile on this album. For us, this album still feels kind of fresh."

IN FLAMES' tenth album, "Sounds Of A Playground Fading" (Century Media), sold around 14,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 27 on The Billboard 200 chart.

IN FLAMES' previous CD, "A Sense of Purpose" (Koch) opened with 20,000 units to land at No. 28. This was slightly less than the opening tally of "Come Clarity" (Ferret), which shifted just under 24,000 copies in February 2006 to enter the chart at position No. 58.
