> > In Flames announces new drummer

Swedish metallers have finally found their missing part!

Swedish metallers IN FLAMES have announced the addition of drummer Joe Rickard to the group’s ranks. Joe joins the band as the replacement for Daniel Svensson, who left IN FLAMES last fall to focus on his family life. We recorded our newest album, ‘Battles’, with legendary producer Howard Benson. Howard and his team pushed our boundaries and kept our energy high every day while navigating us through a new process. Suddenly we felt at home. Howard introduced us to one of his trusted and so-talented studio drummers, Joe Rickard. He had formerly been a member of Grammy-nominated RED, toured with numerous bands such as ISLANDER. Joe had such natural talent behind the kit; it seemed effortless. Once we witnessed him laying down drums to our own songs with parts we couldn’t have imagined better ourselves, we knew we had to have him join IN FLAMES. Here you can watch a short video presentation of Joe:

What do you think about In Flames’ new addition? We are sure that he will do his best to replace Svensson!
