In Flames has issued the following statement about headlining the upoming Metaltown and Arvika festivals:

"After the hugely successful Swedish headline shows in December last year we are very proud to announce that In Flames will be headlining Metaltown in Gothenburg (June 19th) and the Arvika Festival (July 16th). In December 2009 In Flames did their biggest Swedish headline shows in their career and played in front of 19,000 people over three days/shows (Stockholm/Hovet – Gothenburg/Scandinavium – Malmö/Arena). When we booked the headline shows last year we all said that they are to be the last shows for quite some time, especially back home in Sweden. But we had such an amazing time with all of you, our amazing fans, so when we got the question if we wanted to headline Metaltown and Arvika this summer the decision was pretty easy. YES!!! We have played both festivals before and had a fantastic time on both of them so it is an understatement to say that we are looking forward to them, both, again."
