In Flames drop new song “State of Slow Decay”

Posted by on June 13, 2022


In Flames have re-signed with Nuclear Blast, and to celebrate the group shared a video for their brand new single, “State of Slow Decay.” The track initially premiered live at Sweden Rock festival is now available on all streaming platforms.


Marcus Hammer, the managing director of Nuclear Blast comments:

“We are extremely happy to welcome In Flames back into the NBR family on a worldwide basis. Here’s the message to the metal world: A new metal masterpiece is about to drop and you can guarantee there is no decay visible. Quite the contrary. In Flames and Nuclear Blast will kill it together — once again and stronger than ever!”


Nathan Barley Phillips, Senior A&R, adds:

“As a dedicated long-serving Jesterhead myself, it gives me great pleasure to represent In Flames as they embark on this exciting new chapter of their illustrious career. I cannot wait for you all to hear what this incredible band have in store!”


Anders Fridén states:

“We have always done our own thing without any pressure from the outside world, BUT being back with Nuclear Blast worldwide has for sure inspired us to write a host of new material that includes the past, the present, and the future. ‘State of Slow Decay’ includes everything that In Flames are known for. But it’s more than just a song, it’s a fucking statement. I couldn’t be happier to release this as a taste of what’s to come.”

In Flames will return to North America in September with Fit For An Autopsy, Obit Culture, and Vended.
