Swedish melo-death titans In Flames have unleashed a new video for the title track from their latest album Sounds Of A Playground Fading. Comprising footage from the band’s extensive touring activities since the album’s release, the clip was directed by award-winning video guru Patric Ullaeus, who has previously worked with Children Of Bodom, Dimmu Borgir, Arch Enemy and many more.

Sounds Of Playground Fading is available now via Century Media. In Flames play a one-off show at Stockholm’s Gröna Lund amusement park on September 27. Sounds awesome. Can someone pay for our flights, please? Thanks.

“Sounds Of A Playground Fading”, the video for the title track of the tenth studio album from Swedish metallers IN FLAMES, can be seen below. The clip, which is made up of concert footage, was produced by Patric Ullaeus of Revolver Film Company, who has previously worked with DIMMU BORGIR, LACUNA COIL, SONIC SYNDICATE and KAMELOT, among others.

IN FLAMES will play a very special show at the Gröna Lund amusement park in Stockholm, Sweden on September 27. Gröna Lund had in fact closed their park for the season, but when they got word that IN FLAMES was available, they decided to re-open the park, just for this concert.

“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 album, “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.

“Sounds Of A Playground Fading” was the first IN FLAMES album to be recorded without founding guitarist Jesper Strömblad, who quit the band in February 2010 in order to continue receiving treatment for his alcohol addiction.

IN FLAMES guitarist Niclas Engelin recently sat out a few of the band’s shows. His temporary replacement for those gigs was Patrik Jensen from THE HAUNTED.

“Circus”, the new video from Swedish rockers CRASHDÏET, can be seen below. The clip was directed by Rick-y.com and edited by John Morgan Studios. The song is the third single from the band’s fourth album, “The Savage Playground”, which entered the official chart in Sweden at position No. 2. The CD was released on January 25 in Europe (excluding Scandinavia) and January 22 in North America via Frontiers Records.

With “The Savage Playground” recorded during summer/autumn 2012 at Kingside Studios outside Stockholm with producer Otto Wellton, the band has their minds set to break through on a worldwide basis with a tour that will see the band going back to the U.S. as well as going to Japan for the first time.

The new album sees CRASHDÏET going in a heavier and direction. “‘The Savage Playground’ is our playground, it’s the beginning and the end, it’s the place where we eat and breed,” says guitarist Martin Sweet. “We thought the time was right for us to do a edgier and not-so-polished-sounding album, kinda like what we sound like live. It’s more organic and rough-sounding. And, of course, we’re always evolving as musicians and like to try new ways of expressing ourselves, and that can most definitely be heard this album.”

CRASHDÏET released a new DVD entitled “Shattered Glass And Broken Bones – Three Years Of Generation Wild” on December 4, 2012. The disc features three hours of live and behind-the-scenes footage complied by the band with Bear Productions.
