Atlantic recording group In This Moment has unveiled plans for a major U.S. headline tour. The dates begin April 17th at The State Theatre in Portland, Maine, and then continue through late May (see dates below). Special guests for the trek include Butcher Babies, Upon A Burning Body, and The Nearly Deads. For complete details and ticket information, please visit inthismomentofficial.com/tour.
The tour is further highlighted by appearances at such upcoming festivals as Fort Myers, Florida’s Fort Rock (April 25th), Jacksonville’s Welcome To Rockville (April 26th), Concord, North Carolina’s Carolina Rebellion (May 3rd), Somerset, Wisconsin’s Northern Invasion (May 9th), Madison’s WJJO MayDay MayLay (May 10th), Columbus, Ohio’s Rock On The Range (May 16th), Pryor, Oklahoma’s Rocklahoma (May 22nd), San Antonio’s River City RockFest (May 24th), and Council Bluffs, Iowa’s The River 89.7 Rockfest (May 29th).
In This Moment made a stunning top 10 chart debut late last year with their acclaimed new album, “BLACK WIDOW.” The Los Angeles-based hard rock band’s fifth full-length release arrived at #8 on the SoundScan/Billboard 200, while also entering Billboard’s “Hard Rock Albums” tally at #3 – both marking In This Moment’s highest chart placement to date.
“BLACK WIDOW” features the Active Rock radio smash, “Sick Like Me.” Companion videos for both that song and “Big Bad Wolf,” another track from the album – directed by Robert John Kley and In This Moment’s own Maria Brink – are streaming now on the band’s official YouTube channel, www.youtube.com/inthismomenttv. Next up, Brink will direct the video for “Sex Metal Barbie,” the band’s new single, in the upcoming weeks.
Produced by longtime collaborator – and multiple GRAMMY® Award nominee – Kevin Churko (Five Finger Death Punch, Ozzy Osbourne), “BLACK WIDOW” is available in an array of distinctive configurations, including a limited edition 2xLP black and gold vinyl housed in a gatefold jacket exclusively available at Atlantic’s webstore, store.warnermusic.com/black-widow-color-vinyl-2xlp.html.
Known worldwide for their dramatic live performances, In This Moment celebrated “BLACK WIDOW” with an epic U.S. headline tour. “‘The Noise’ Presents In This Moment’s ‘BLACK WIDOW’ Tour” was met with ecstatic praise in a range of national outlets. “One of the most unique, diverse and theatrical live acts you could witness in heavy music today,” raved Loudwire about In This Moment’s recent performance at New York’s Webster Hall (livestreamed exclusively by SiriusXM Octane). “Not only are they a powerhouse sonically but visually they are beyond captivating. With a bigger label backing them for ‘BLACK WIDOW,’ the production, sound and overall professional level of their concert experience has been elevated.”
