October 26, 2006
Lacuna Coil will make its triumphant return to the U.S. on November 17 as part of the annual 'Blackest of the Black' tour alongside the legendary Danzig, Century Media labelmates The Haunted, Belphegor and Asesino. Following this two-week trek are two headlining dates in Mexico, which lead them immediately into a run as direct support to In Flames, with The Sword and Seemless opening. This is the group's third U.S. run in support of 'Karmacode', and wraps up a highly successful year with numerous highlights such as a main stage Ozzfest slot, a sold-out tour with Rob Zombie, a performance on ABC-TV's "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" and a Top 30 Active Rock hit single with the track "Our Truth". This tour also coincides with the launch of the group's new single for "Closer", the third single from 'Karmacode'. The radio mix and edit of "Closer" was done by Brian Malouf (Michael Jackson, Madonna, Pearl Jam), and the captivating video for the track, completed by the directorial team Fort Awesome (who also shot the group’s acclaimed "Our Truth" clip), can be viewed by clicking here.

In Flames: 'Come Clarity' Hits 100,000 Copies
October 7, 2006
According to Nielsen SoundScan, U.S. sales figures for In Flames' 'Come Clarity' album have surpassed 100,000 copies.

'Come Clarity', the highly-influential band's debut for Ferret Music, took the hard rock community by storm upon its release, debuting at #58 on the Billboard Top 200 with first week sales of nearly 25,000 copies. The highest charting record in both the band and label's sales history, 'Come Clarity' has met to widespread critical acclaim and solidified In Flames' place as leaders of the modern day heavy music movement. The album has been hailed as "a coordinated stampede" by Billboard, "A rare blend of speed, precision, heaviness and melody" by the Chicago Tribune and "both fierce and sentimental" by the New York Times, who praised the Swedish band for its "grand, galloping sound".

In Flames is also seeing success at radio with the launch of the first U.S. commercial campaign in the band's storied history. Active Rock stations across the country have been adding the new single, "Come Clarity" to their playlists, with early adds from tastemaker stations WJJO (Madison, WI), KFRQ (McAllen, TX) and great support from KMYZ (Tulsa, OK) and XM Radio leading the charge. These are the first commercial radio adds ever for In Flames, and also a first for Ferret Music. 'Come Clarity' showcases the powerful songwriting that In Flames is known for, as well as the band's crossover potential, incorporating acoustic guitars, impassioned vocals and a bombastic chorus.

On the heels of the new single's release, In Flames has announced December, 2006 North American headlining dates. The In Flames tour will feature support from Lacuna Coil and more and is slated to kick off on December 5 in Norfolk, VA. The band is currently on the road alongside Slayer and Lamb of God as part of the 2006 "Unholy Alliance" Europe trek.
