In Flames Releases ‘The Journey Home’ Documentary And Making Of ‘Foregone’ Album

August 28, 2023

In Flames has released “The Journey Home”, a 34-minute documentary chronicling the band’s last European tour and the making of their 14th studio album, “Foregone”!

“Foregone” was released in February ’23 and prior to its release, singer Anders Fridén said, “Going into the ‘Foregone’ sessions, we wanted to make a record that was heavily guitar-driven, and that had a strong foundation between the bass and drums. We still approached our songwriting the same way, as we always have, as a juxtaposition between melody and aggression. That’s the DNA of our music. From the lyrical end of things, there was no shortage of inspiration to draw from, especially the concept of time.”

Fridén added, “Humanity as a whole was forced to slow down and take breather. In that break, many of us spent time evaluating and reprioritizing. Time is a constant, but what do we do with it and how we perceive it varies. Especially now looking at where the world seems to be headed faster than ever before.”

In case you missed it, this past June, In Flames parted ways with bassist Bryce Paul and replaced him with Liam Wilson (The Dillinger Escape Plan).
