About an hour ago In Flames took to Facebook to reveal that they were having some "issues" relative to their "online" platforms. Specifically, they had the following to say:

"We have encountered some issues regarding our online platforms. We want to assure you that no Jesterhead member information has been compromised, and our team is working on a solution right now. We apologize for the inconvenience."

Minutes later, a Facebook commenter responded simply with "www.inflames.com," the address of the band's official website. A quick trip to said website indicates that it has apparently been hacked (see the image below). Strangely, the intruder accuses In Flames of "trolling us" and threatens to "leak whatever whatever info we have" at 6am EST tomorrow. We're not sure what information this could possibly be; perhaps the names of people who ordered In Flames t-shirts? Then again, could this be an oddly orchestrated campaign for the band's forthcoming album? Stay tuned for a most likely unexciting conclusion.

UPDATE: See above where we said that this might be a publicity stunt for In Flames' new album? Well, guess what? That's exactly what this was. Anticlimax aside, the new album is titled Siren Charms and it will hit stores in September. Carry on.
