99Rock Music News: In This Moment Unveil New Album Details, New Single + Fall 2014 Tour Dates
In This Moment will release their fifth studio album, 'Black Widow,' on Nov. 18 via Atlantic Records. To celebrate the news, the band has unleashed the album's first single, 'Sick Like Me,' which is posted above. The song features singer Maria Brink's soaring vocals shining over a heavy track that's sure to get fans pumped up for the new album.
'Black Widow' was produced by the band's longtime collaborator Kevin Churko, who is also known for his work with Five Finger Death Punch and Ozzy Osbourne. It will be available for pre-order at digital retailers starting on Oct. 7.
The effort will be offered to fans in a variety of configurations including vinyl exclusively at Atlantic's webstore. All pre-orders will receive four instant downloads prior to the release of the album, including the single 'Sick Like Me."
Frontwoman Maria Brink opened up about the band's fifth album saying, "'Black Widow' is definitely the darker part of me. This album is finding the weakness inside and turning it into strength. It's about being reborn, setting yourself free and realizing the balance in everything — the dark and the light." She adds, "I am so ready and excited for the launch of this album. I think people will embrace its diversity and hearing different sides of us that they haven't experienced yet."
Guitarist Chris Howorth chimed as follows: "This was by far the most challenging, exciting and rewarding experience we've ever had making a record. We threw out the rulebook and tried to create something fearless, constantly pushing ourselves to make an album unlike anyone has heard before. Fans, get ready for this ride — everything is going to the next level."
