In Flames website hacked; "info" leak threatened

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. In Flames website 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.

anonymous 4/10/2014 9:26:18 AM

Did In Flames have a Geocities site?


anonymous 4/10/2014 10:29:44 AM

As an In Flames fan, I support this move.


anonymous 4/10/2014 10:53:04 AM

Was it the same person who "hacked" As I Lay Dying's site (Tim Lambesis)?


anonymous 4/10/2014 10:53:41 AM

"So all 4 of In Flames current remaining fans care?" They probably have more fans now since they sold out and started writing shitty albums for girls to buy. Double your audience base.

"PWNED" i really would like to know what this hacker looks like and what his living conditions are like


anonymous 4/10/2014 11:10:31 AM

lol at dudes who think Jester Race still holds up today. yea it was good in 97 or whenever but that last In Flames album blew it out the water fggtz


anonymous 4/10/2014 12:32:50 PM

shut-in 4chan nerds are stoked


anonymous 4/10/2014 1:07:23 PM

I haven't even bothered to listen to Sounds of a Playground Fading due to increased clean vocals and how terrible it's previous albums Come Clarity and A Sense of Purpose were.


Hibuddywazup 4/10/2014 1:28:37 PM

But I am scared they will make more music.

anonymous 6 hours ago lol at dudes who think Jester Race still holds up today. yea it was good in 97 or whenever but that last In Flames album blew it out the water fggtz permalink | report abuse another delusional idiot trapped in a web of stupid musical non-sense who wouldn't know good music if it stuck its penis in his ear. kids these days are just stupid. every year they get dumber and dumber and dumber. see that movie idiocracy? this generation of idiots have surpassed that.


jon 4/10/2014 5:48:32 PM

on a lighter note.. this band was my favorite.. they need to find their roots though. jester race started it, but whoracle, colony and clayman solidified it. after that they tried to fit in with this commercial radio garbage. fcking stupid. oh well. im gonna rub one off on a hot dog bun and throw it in the recycling bin.


anonymous 4/10/2014 6:40:05 PM

Wow, the hacker is also a meme-master He has truly mastered the art of epic memeing


anonymous 4/10/2014 8:10:52 PM

New album title: HEARTBLEED


anonymous 4/11/2014 5:33:42 AM

"another delusional idiot trapped in a web of stupid musical non-sense who wouldn't know good music if it stuck its penis in his ear." this guy, lol. if you can't recognize good music when hearing ...Playground Fading you're just a lost cause. Any one of those riffs would be right at home on your precious '90s IF albums but illiterates like you just cant see it. New/better production and more clean vocals (oh nos!!) are the ONLY difference. And guess what, they nailed it.


anonymous 4/11/2014 5:42:06 AM

"on a lighter note.. this band was my favorite.. they need to find their roots though. jester race started it, but whoracle, colony and clayman solidified it. after that they tried to fit in with this commercial radio garbage." Tell me the first fuucking riff in "A New Dawn" couldnt be dropped right into Colony or Clayman. And lol at "wahhhh theyre radio friendly, me want more screaminggg" (which theres still plenty of)


jon 4/11/2014 6:27:10 AM

against the ropes opening riff is awesome. love that song. just dont like the direction most of my favorite bands have been going. you wouldnt understand though. too young and too stupid.


anonymous 4/11/2014 7:52:33 AM

^only a "young," "stupid" person couldn't get into and appreciate Playground Fading. Someone so young and naive they were never around to appreciate Jester Race and Whoracle back when they were just as groundbreaking.


jon 4/11/2014 9:46:39 AM

smh. this thread smells like shit now.


anonymous 4/11/2014 11:12:26 AM

lol you have been defeated. leave with dignity.


anonymous 4/11/2014 11:19:58 AM

^^idiot


jon 4/11/2014 12:38:11 PM
