Swedish metallers IN FLAMES have announced three headlining shows on "off" days during this year's Gigantour, which is scheduled to kick off in North America mid-April and run through the end of May. Headlining the trek will be MEGADETH, with additional support from CHILDREN OF BODOM, JOB FOR A COWBOY and HIGH ON FIRE.

IN FLAMES headlining shows:

Apr. 18 - Little Rock, AR - The Village (w/ JOB FOR A COWBOY)
Apr. 24 - Philadelphia, PA - Electric Factory (w/ CHILDREN OF BODOM)
May 02 - Columbus, OH - Newport Music Hall (w/ JOB FOR A COWBOY)

IN FLAMES recently inked a deal with Koch Records for the North American release of the group's new album, "A Sense of Purpose". Due on April 1 (April 7 in most of Europe via Nuclear Blast), the follow-up to 2006's "Come Clarity" was recorded at the band's own IF Studios in Gothenburg, Sweden and was mixed by Toby Wright (METALLICA, SLAYER). The group received assistance during the vocal-recording sessions from producer Daniel Bergstrand, who previously produced the vocals on "Reroute To Remain", "Soundtrack To Your Escape" and "Come Clarity". All artwork for the album was created by Alex Pardee for ZeroFriends. Alex also created the artwork for the first single, "The Mirror's Truth".

Again this needs to be on the West Coast! Not a Megadeth listener but an In Flames fan for sure, although I'd go see Job For A Cowboy and Children Of Bodom! Can't wait for the new album and the Alex Pardee art is amazing as usual!

Pittsburgh is getting a Bodom off-date and that is more than fine with me.
