2017 will once again be a loud year for the Swedish metal institution, IN FLAMES! They kick off the year with a UK arena tour as special guests of Avenged Sevenfold today, followed by a European headline tour in select cities (see below) this spring.

The awards will take place in Stockholm on February 28th. Other bands nominated in this category include DARK TRANQUILLITY and GHOST.
