In This Moment: IN THE STUDIO
Dynamic metal rockers IN THIS MOMENT recently headed in to the studio to begin work on their new album, the fourth for longtime label Century Media Records. The southern Californian-based band has once again tapped studio great Kevin Churko (Ozzy Osbourne, Five Finger Death Punch) to helm the production of the as-of-yet-untitled record, which is slated for a Summer, 2012 release. Front woman Maria Brink commented, "There are no words to describe how excited we are... we are on fire with this record. It's by far the most powerful material we have ever written. IN THIS MOMENT has gone through some big changes. I admit sometimes change is scary, especially when facing the unknown, but in this case everything has been perfectly meant to be. It's a brave, dark, hard-hitting album that will make you feel dirty inside, but still wanting more..."
Lead guitarist Chris Howorth added, "Over the last 6 months we have undergone some interesting changes within the band, as a result Maria and I were brought closer together united in our mutual determination to top everything we have previously done with IN THIS MOMENT. It's our fourth album and we definitely have something to prove this time. During the writing process Maria, Kevin and I are pushing ourselves to make sure every song is something unique and special. I honestly feel this is the most focused and powerful music we have ever created and I am beyond psyched to get it out there for people to hear."
IN THIS MOMENT are currently taking a short break from the studio to play at the Soundwave Festival in Australia and will return to the studio to resume recording immediately following those dates. Upon completion of the new album and in advance of the summer touring season, the band will head out on a brief run of American tour dates in May.
IN THIS MOMENT was formed in 2005 and have released three full length albums to date, selling over a quarter of a million records in the US alone. They've cracked the Top 40 Active Rock charts and have appeared on the Rockstar Energy Mayhem Festival, as well as Warped and Ozzfest tours in the US while touring with Papa Roach and Devil Driver in Europe/UK. Front woman Maria Brink was recently named Revolver's Hottest Chick in Metal. IN THIS MOMENT is: Maria Brink (vocals), Chris Howorth (lead guitar) and Travis Johnson (bass).
