In This Moment’s sixth studio album ‘Ritual’ is set for release on 21st July via Atlantic Records with first track ‘Oh Lord’ available to watch below.
Produced by long-time collaborator and multiple GRAMMY® Award nominee, Kevin Churko (Ozzy Osbourne, Five Finger Death Punch), ‘Ritual‘ sees In This Moment pushing their dark sound forward with a provocative sense of metallic blues and doom. Highlights include a dramatic re-imagination of Phil Collins’ classic ‘In The Air Tonight’, as well as ‘Black Wedding,’ a walk down the aisle of musical madness that sees In This Moment’s front woman Maria Brink sharing the mic with legendary Judas Priest front man Rob Halford.
“It’s like we’re going into the next realm,” says Brink. “I had a conviction of feeling empowered in my life and with myself. I always write from a personal place, and I needed to share that sense of strength. I’ve never been afraid to hold back. Sometimes, I can be very suggestive. However, I wanted to show our fans that this is the most powerful side of myself and it’s without overt sexuality. It’s that deeper serious fire inside of my heart.”
“When fans hear this, I want them to feel the music, whether they take away sadness, anger, or happiness,” adds In This Moment lead guitarist Chris Howorth. “As a kid, I remember listening to records and putting them on repeat over and over again. I’d love for the world to listen and absorb this as a piece of work.”
IN THIS MOMENT will herald ‘Ritual’ on a major North American tour, beginning in June and featuring support from such like-minded bands as Motionless In White, Little Miss Nasty, Vimic and Starset. Find out more here.
