In Flames Announces 20th Anniversary Edition of 'Clayman', Release Video for Re-Recorded Title Track


In Flames Announce Clayman 20th Anniversary

Sweden’s influential and long revered heavy metal giants In Flames are celebrating two major milestones in 2020 with their 30th anniversary as a band, and 20th anniversary of their seminal, critically acclaimed album, Clayman. In honor of this monumental occasion, Nuclear Blast Records will release a special 20th Anniversary Edition of the 2000 album on August 28th.


Today, the band releases the lyric video for the first single, a re-recorded version of the title track. Check it out below.


"This record changed our career in a number of ways. Being the 20th anniversary this year, we had to do something massive for the fans," frontman Anders Fridén said of the 20th Anniversary Edition. "Going back into the studio to re-record some of the original tracks took us right back in time to when we first recorded them. Every detail of the new artwork and visuals was deeply thought out keeping in mind what the Jesterheads would want to see most. This one’s for you. Thank you for 20 years of Clayman."


Clayman 20th Anniversary Edition comes entirely remastered by Ted Jensen (Pantera, Deftones, Gojira) and features all new artwork in a 16-page booklet, a brand-new instrumental medley plus 4 re-recorded versions of fan-favorites such as "Only For The Weak" and "Pinball Map". Re-recorded songs were produced by Howard Benson (My Chemical Romance, Motorhead) and mixed by Chris Lord-Alge (Green Day, Rob Zombie). The record will be released digitally as well as on CD Digipak and a 2xLP colored vinyl packaged in a deluxe trifold that includes an oversized booklet, 11 remastered tracks on a 12” record and 5 bonus tracks on a 10” record in a printed sleeve.

In other news, due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the tour featuring Megadeth, Lamb of God, Trivium and In Flames has been postponed to 2021. New dates will be announced as rescheduled. All tickets purchased will be honored accordingly.
