Atlantic recording group In This Moment has announced details of their eagerly awaited new album. “BLACK WIDOW” – the Los Angeles-based hard rock band’s full-length release – arrives on November 18th.
Produced by longtime collaborator – and multiple GRAMMY® Award nominee – Kevin Churko (Five Finger Death Punch, Ozzy Osbourne), “BLACK WIDOW” will be available for pre-order on the iTunes Store and other digital retailers beginning October 7th. The album will be offered to fans in an array of distinctive configurations, including a very special vinyl piece exclusively available at Atlantic’s webstore, http://store.atlanticrecords.com. All pre-orders will receive four instant grat downloads prior to the album release, highlighted by the potent first single, “Sick Like Me,” which arrives today on the iTunes Store and at multi-format rock radio outlets nationwide. The track is posted at http://youtu.be/K1R9-KqYtbY and a “Sick Like Me” companion video is currently in production, with a premiere date to be announced soon.
“’BLACK WIDOW’ is definitely the darker part of me,” says singer Maria Brink. “This album is about finding the weakness inside and turning it into strength. It’s about being reborn, setting yourself free and realizing the balance in everything – the dark and the light.
“We are very excited to be releasing this album through Atlantic Records,” she adds, “who have put out some of the greatest and most revered albums of all time. I am so ready and excited for the launch of this album. I think people will embrace its diversity and hearing different sides of us that they haven’t experienced yet.”
“Here we go again,” says guitarist Chris Howorth. “This was by far the most challenging, exciting and rewarding experience we’ve ever had making a record. We threw out the rulebook and tried to create something fearless, constantly pushing ourselves to make an album unlike anyone has heard before. Fans, get ready for this ride – everything is going to the next level.”
Known worldwide for their dramatic live performances, In This Moment will herald “BLACK WIDOW” with an epic US headline tour. “‘The Noise’ Presents In This Moment’s ‘BLACK WIDOW’ Tour” gets underway October 26th at Reno, Nevada’s Knitting Factory and then travels through mid-December (see attached itinerary). Special guests will include Twelve Foot Ninja and Starset – for complete details and ticket information, please visit inthismomentofficial.com/tour.
As if that weren’t enough, Saturday, October 25th, will see In This Moment appearing at KNOTFEST US 2014, the heavy music destination festival hosted by the one and only Slipknot at San Bernardino, California’s San Manuel Amphitheater & Campgrounds. Powered by Rockstar Energy Drink, KNOTFEST will see over 60 bands – including Five Finger Death Punch, Volbeat, Killswitch Engage, Of Mice & Men, and many others – performing on five stages, culminating each night with headline performances from Slipknot themselves. A truly immersive experience, KNOTFEST attendees will descend into an apocalyptic underworld featuring over 20 attractions including a Slipknot Museum, carnival rides, a zip line across the festival grounds, drum circles, pillars of fire, freaks, fire-breathers, stilt-walkers, and much more. For details, including complete ticketing information, please see www.knotfest.com.
In This Moment has been rightly acclaimed as one of the most combustible and emotionally invigorating bands in modern metal. Fueled by singer Maria Brink’s powerful voice and provocative persona, the band has received steadily growing praise and commercial success for its idiosyncratic melding of raw power, sonic experimentation, and widescreen songcraft. “BLOOD” – In The Moment’s fourth and most recent full-length release – made a spectacular chart debut upon its 2012 arrival, entering the SoundScan/Billboard 200 at #15 while also coming in at #1 on the “Top Hard Rock Albums” ranking. The album proved a breakthrough, spawning such top 20 multi-format rock radio hits as “Whore,” “Adrenalize,” and the top 10 title track.
Like any truly great hard rock band, In This Moment has spent much of its decade-long existence on the road, building an increasingly passionate fan following via headline tours and support runs alongside such like-minded acts as fellow Atlantic recording groups Halestorm and Shinedown. What’s more, In This Moment has taken part in a long list of blockbuster festivals and multi-artist tours, with highlights including Ozzfest, Vans Warped Tour, Music As A Weapon V, Mayhem Festival 2010, Rockstar Energy Drink Uproar Festival 2012, Carnival of Madness 2013, Australia’s Soundwave 2012, and the UK’s legendary Download Festival.
