IN FLAMES recently canceled a number of dates on the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival and its own U.S. headline shows “due to a serious terminal illness of one the band’s immediate family members.”

IN FLAMES’ tenth album, “Sounds Of A Playground Fading”, sold around 14,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 27 on The Billboard 200 chart.

IN FLAMES’ previous CD, “A Sense of Purpose” (Koch) opened with 20,000 units to land at No. 28. This was slightly less than the opening tally of “Come Clarity” (Ferret), which shifted just under 24,000 copies in February 2006 to enter the chart at position No. 58.
