Anders Fridén adds on ‘State Of Slow Decay’:
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.” 

Marcus Hammer, the managing director of Nuclear Blast, states about the re-signing:
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, comments:
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!”
