In Flames and Five Finger Death Punch have announced a UK and European tour which will take place later this year.

The shows are planned to get under way at Gothenburg’s Scandinavium on November 16 and wrap up with a set at London’s Wembley Arena on December 21. Of Mice & Men will also play on selected dates.

In Flames’ vocalist Anders Friden says: “We’ve been lucky to play for so many Jesterheads around the world this year and can’t think of a better way to end 2017 than touring Europe with Five Finger Death Punch. We’ll see you soon Jesterheads and Knuckleheads. It’s going to be a tour to remember.”

Five Finger Death Punch guitarist Zoltan Bathory adds: “We are currently playing all the European festivals and are having an amazing time. As these massive crowds are singing along every word of the lyrics, it feels like Europe is truly becoming the second home of Five Finger Death Punch.

“We can’t wait to come back this autumn and especially with In Flames which is one of my favourite bands. This will be something special to see.”

Tickets will go on general sale from 10am GMT on Friday, June 16.

News of the tour comes after Five Finger Death Punch’s chaotic show in the Netherlands on Monday night, which saw them play a shortened set because of infighting between frontman Ivan Moody and the rest of the band.

The performance also saw Moody tell the crowd that the show would be his last with Five Finger Death Punch.
