IN FLAMES, KILLSWITCH ENGAGE: Swedish Leg Of 'Taste Of Chaos' Tour Announced

IN FLAMES and KILLSWITCH ENGAGE have announced the Swedish leg of the "Rockstar Energy Drink Taste Of Chaos Tour 2009", which is scheduled to take place in November/December. The IN FLAMES-headlined dates are as follows:

Dec. 11 - Stockholm, SWE @ Hovet
Dec. 12 - Gothenburg, SWE @ - Scandinavium
Dec. 14 - Malmö, SWE @ Arena

Commented IN FLAMES in a statement: "We are extremely psyched to be playing these shows, which might be the last in Sweden for quite some time. It will be an awesome night with a lot of good bands. Hope to see you all there!"

IN FLAMES is continuing to tour without guitarist Jesper Strömblad, who recently checked himself into a rehabilitation clinic in order to receive treatment for his alcohol addiction. For the time being, Niclas Engelin from the Swedish band ENGEL is filling in on guitar. Niclas has helped IN FLAMES on a couple of occasions in the past and is no stranger to the band's songs or the touring life.

The group previously said in a statement: "Jesper has struggled for some time with alcoholic abuse, and decided to sit this [tour] out in order to seek help and focus on rehabilitation and all that comes with it. We all talked about it and together with Jesper, we chose to ask our longtime friend Niclas Engelin, who helped us before, to complete the tour. We are all sad that it needed to come to this, but health comes first. This is something Jesper needed to do for himself and we wish Jesper all the best with his recovery and hope to have him back on the road with us again very, very soon!"
