In This Moment has completed work on the follow-up to 2014’s Black Widow album and is planning a tentative summer release for the disc. Guitarist Chris Howorth told Cutter’s Rockcast that a first single will likely arrive around April 21st, adding that the album is “different and cool and I think it’s a different step for us but that I think our fans are really gonna like.”

Howorth said about the new CD’s direction, “Stylistically, I think we went a little bit more raw, you know — like, not so much campiness like ‘Sex Metal Barbie’. Not that there was anything wrong with that — we’re always trying to experiment and do something different — but it’s more serious, I guess, and a little more stripped down.”

  • In This Moment singer Maria Brink told us a while back why expressing herself through music is important: [“For me it’s perfect because it’s an outlet. It’s like, I don’t even know where I would be or what I — I’d probably be some kind of psychopath maniac if I couldn’t release all of this. It’s almost like therapy and I mean, it all comes out into the album and just pours onto everybody else. But people, you know, seem to relate and identify too, because everybody has something, you know, that they go through or can identify with.”] 
  • In This Moment kicked off a new North American tour, dubbed the “Half God Half Devil” trek, this past Friday (April 7th) in Milwaukee. The road trip stops in Omaha, Nebraska on Tuesday (April 11th) and continues until May 6th, where it ends at the Carolina Rebellion festival.
  • The road trip marks In This Moment’s first full-scale tour since serving as special guests on last year’s “Return Of The Dreads” tour with Korn and Rob Zombie.
