According to In This Moment guitarist Chris Howorth, we will hear new music from the group as early as the end of next week. It’s been since 2014’s Black Widow and while the band are currently on the Half God Half Devil tour with Motionless In White, Avatar, and Gemini Syndrome it appears they have more exciting news ahead.
Howorth shared details on a new album to Cutter of Razor 94.7 and The Cutting Edge Countdown, stating:
“We have an album done. It’s done. There’s going to be a single released probably around the 21st of this month. We’re going to make announcements about it on the 14th I think to let everybody know what’s happening. But we have a whole album ready to go. It’s going to be out over the summer. It’s different and cool and I think it’s a different step for us but that I think our fans are really gonna like.
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. There’s still electronics and stuff, and it’s still In This Moment, but it’s a little more stripped down, I guess, and maybe swampy and bluesy a little bit in certain elements, but still metal, you know, still us.
At the beginning of the band it was about guitar solos and shredding and trying to be as metal as we could. I learned to open up to the song itself and particularly Maria’s vocal. That’s the key selling point of the band, that’s what everyone is listening to. I don’t want to do anything to clutter that. It’s like the guitars are there, but they’re not there to be the forefront, they are there to support the whole song. But it’s still guitar driven, that’s In This Moment.”
