IN FLAMES Drummer Quits So He Can Spend More Time With His Family

The flame just got a little smaller.

The flame just got a little smaller.

In Flames seems to be going through a lot of interesting changes, initially just with its sound and now with the search starting for a new drummer.

The band's now-former drummer Daniel Svensson has announced via Facebook that he will no longer be a part of the band due to wanting to spend more time with his family.

Time to turn the page..

I have decided to close my chapter in In Flames after finishing up this current tour.
It has truly been a fantastic journey and I want to thank Anders, Björn, Peter, Jesper and Niclas from the bottom of my heart, for all great memories and experiences that we've shared during the last 17 years(!) together.

It's hard to leave what have become my second family, but now it's time for me to take care and spend more time with the most important people in my life – my wife and my three daughters.
Perhaps some of you of will see me again, as I will start my very own brewery in a very near future.

Something I am just as passionate about as In Flames.

I wish my friends in the band, the whole crew and everyone that’s working for In Flames the very best in the future. To you, all fans around the world, I want to say, thank you, massively, for all the support you have shown during my years in the band.


Hey, at least we'll still be getting some kick ass alcohol from Daniel in the future! Plus, who can blame the guy? A whole 17 years away from the family and friends for extended periods of time has to be incredibly rough, so major kudos for keeping it up for even that long.
