As previously reported, IN FLAMES guitarist Jesper Strömblad has undisclosed "issues to deal with" and is "taking a break" from the group's current touring activities. However, fans are being assured that Jesper "will be back." The rest of the band will complete the forthcoming tours and no dates will be cancelled. IN FLAMES' latest album, "Come Clarity", has sold more than 100,000 copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan. "Come Clarity", the highly influential band's debut for Ferret Music, took the hard rock community by storm upon its release, debuting at #58 on the Billboard Top 200 with first week sales of nearly 25,000 copies. The highest charting record in both the band and label's sales history, "Come Clarity" has met to widespread critical acclaim and solidified IN FLAMES' place as leaders of the modern day heavy music movement. IN FLAMES is also seeing success at radio with the launch of the first U.S. commercial campaign in the band's storied history.
