Fan-filmed video of the efficiency may be seen beneath.

THE HALO EFFECT will launch its debut album, “Days Of The Misplaced”, on August 12 by way of Nuclear Blast.

In a brand new interview with Australia’s “Scars And Guitars” podcast, Peter and Daniel have been requested if they might agree that “Days Of The Misplaced” is, in some methods, a “non secular successor” to “Reroute To Stay”, IN FLAMES‘ sixth album, which got here out in 2022. Peter mentioned: “Ooh, fascinating. I have never actually thought of it. If you make music, like we do, you have a tendency to not overthink stuff — you simply go in and also you write music and form of know that what comes out will sound a sure approach due to the fashion that we’re taking part in and the way we’re taking part in and performing our music. So I have never actually thought of it, however perhaps — perhaps. It was undoubtedly nothing intentional. We simply went in. We had a bunch of concepts and we got here out with a bunch of songs that occur to sound a sure approach. However none of us actually overthought it and it was by no means meant to ‘it is gonna sound like this’ or ‘it is gonna sound like that.’ We simply [went], ‘Let’s write this music and see what occurs.’ And due to, like I mentioned, how we’re taking part in, it will sound a sure approach.”

Added Daniel: “Lots of people like to research music, and, in fact, it sounds Gothenburg metal-ish as a result of all of us are from that style and we’re a number of the people who form of created it. So, in fact, it can sound Gothenburg metal-ish, IN FLAMES-ish. After which which period, I do not know. And as Peter mentioned, we do not actually take into consideration the way it ought to sound. That is how we sound right now, and with our legacy that is inevitable, that we sound as we do.”

Continued Peter: “Clearly, individuals love to do numerous evaluating between us… It is a troublesome matter to debate as a result of none of us have — though we have all been in IN FLAMES sooner or later, none of us have actually thought of this as what you are saying. However then lots of people that we converse to say it. So it is a bit exhausting to soak up, as we have been very thorough in simply writing music. However I might say it is a bit flattering to listen to it.”

Svensson, who joined IN FLAMES in 1998, introduced in 2015 that he was leaving the group to concentrate on his household life.

A member of IN FLAMES since 1997, Iwers issued an announcement in November 2016 saying that he was exiting the band “to pursue different endeavors.”

Engelin has been sitting out IN FLAMES‘ tour dates for the previous three years however has by no means formally confirmed his departure from the band. Engelin‘s alternative for IN FLAMES‘ reside exhibits since then has been former MEGADETH and present ACT OF DEFIANCE guitarist Chris Broderick.

Stanne lately advised the “Heavy Hops” podcast about THE HALO EFFECT‘s musical course: “Niclas began writing a couple of songs, simply based mostly on what he has and what he form of digs. And I instantly felt, like, ‘Oh, that is tremendous cool. We’re on to one thing right here.’ It is tremendous heavy, it is melodic — it is all these issues that we form of grew up attempting to do. Then Jesper acquired concerned and he began altering a bit little bit of that or including stuff to it. And we have been, like, ‘Okay, that is superior.’ It does not really feel new in any respect, it does not really feel tremendous completely different, however on the identical time, why ought to we? Let’s concentrate on the issues that we all know finest and attempt to form of recapture that feeling that we had after we have been youngsters, after we needed to play collectively and that form of playful ambiance. As a result of the longer you play collectively along with your essential band or what have you ever, you attempt to consistently reinvent your self, and a lot power goes into attempting to be completely different from what you’ve executed earlier than. Whereas beginning one thing new like this with a really acquainted style of music meant that you could possibly be very free about it. It does not should be something particularly, it does not have to evolve to any guidelines — it simply must fucking kick ass and really feel good.”

Shortly after leaving IN FLAMES, Iwers joined CYHRA, the band that includes vocalist Jake E (ex-AMARANTHE) and Strömblad. He introduced his departure from that band in Might 2018.

THE HALO EFFECT‘s first-ever tour will likely be because the assist act for Swedish dying steel giants AMON AMARTH and U.S. metallers MACHINE HEAD on 31 dates all through Europe in the summertime and fall of 2022.
