03 DECEMBER 2021 (Toronto, ON) - Today, If Anything, Suspicious, the project of legendary Swedish melodic death metal band In Flames’ frontman Anders Fridén, releases OFFAIR: Lullabies for the Damned via OFFAIR Records. The release follows two calming singles “Farewell” and “Nodes of Yesod” called “serene” by Blabbermouth and “ethereal” by MXDWN. OFFAIR: Lullabies for the Damned is the second album released by OFFAIR Records, a new label centering on mood music and intentional listening experiences created by noteworthy artists exploring instrumental and experimental sounds outside of their typical genre.
OFFAIR: Lullabies for the Damned is an expression of the pure joy of creation that explores Fridén’s love of making electronic music, and captures the sentiment of rebirth because this was like nothing he’d ever done before.

OFFAIR Records is a joint venture between Universal Music Canada (UMC) and Versus Creative globally distributed by UMC and Virgin Music Label + Artist Services. With a community of established artists exploring beyond their familiar sonic territories, OFFAIR’s series of releases will bring instrumental and experimental soundtracks to listener-specific environments, mental spaces and shared universal moments. The mission of OFFAIR co-founders Rishi Shah and Nate Auerbach is to create deeper experiences with music. OFFAIR is building a brand, community, and distribution system together with their partners at UMC and Virgin Music to drive intentional listening, supported by special events, partnerships and more. The label’s first signing was Highland Park Sleep Collective, a duo formed by producers Tim Anderson and Filip Nikolic (formerly of Poolside) whose production credits include Billie Eilish, Pabllo Vittar and King Princess. They put their own twist on the ambient genre with their album OFFAIR: Music For Water, released in August.
