Front man Anders Fridén states,

“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.


Humanity as a whole was forced to slow down and take a breather. In that break, many of us spent time evaluating and reprioritizing. Time is a constant, but what 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.”


It’s crazy that after everything we are still here and on our fourteenth album. I feel that we’ve found a great balance between the past, the present and the future with Foregone. This is a new era of In Flames!”


The visualizer was created by Oleg Rooz. The Ukrainian graphic designer used groundbreaking AI technology to create the visuals. As one of the first bands relying on AI for a music video, In Flames remain at the cutting edge.


“I thought that everything we’ve been through these past few years would be a reminder that life is precious, and that time is not on our side,” offers Fridén. “Unfortunately, I feel that we’ve woken up in a world that’s more hostile and bleak than ever before. The clock is ticking and the countdown has begun…”


Foregone also features artwork designed by Blake Armstrong.
