The Halo Effect (Ex-In Flames) To Release Debut Album In August, Unveil Music Video For Title Track “Days Of The Lost”


Swedish supergroup The Halo Effect have announced an August 12th release date for their debut album “Days Of The Lost“. Five current/former members of In Flames are involved in the band, who have just launched a video online for the album’s title track.

The group shot that video on a rooftop in the Ringön district of Gothenburg, Sweden in January. Theo Gabay and Morgan Jensen oversaw the directorial duties for it. Speaking of the track, the band’s vocalist Mikael Stanne (Dark Tranquillity/Grand Cadaver) commented:

“‘Days Of The Lost‘ is about finding your place in life, about making that outcast experience into something that propels you forward. We all met in our mid teens and we were all trying to find direction, motivation and meaning. Thankfully we found it in creativity and music and we shared this passion and made something from it that remains an essential part of who we are as individuals and as parts of a whole.

So this is us reflecting on our past, while watching a new generation slowly but surely find their path. It’s about standing up, being your true self and about not letting anything stand in your way. Our choices and our paths have led to all kinds of things but we wouldn’t change a thing.”

The group’s complete lineup includes:

Vocalist: Mikael Stanne
Guitarist: Jesper Strömblad
Guitarist: Niclas Engelin
Bass: Peter Iwers
Drums: Daniel Svensson
