IN THIS MOMENT has completed work on its long-awaited follow-up to 2014’s “Black Widow” album for a tentative summer release via Atlantic. The new disc was once again recorded at The Hideout Recording Studio in Las Vegas, Nevada with producer Kevin Churko, who has previously worked with FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH, HELLYEAH, PAPA ROACH and DISTURBED.

“We have an album done. It’s done,” IN THIS MOMENT guitarist Chris Howorth told Cutter of Razor 94.7 and “The Cutting Edge Countdown” (hear audio below). “There’s gonna be a single released probably around the 21st of this month… But we have a whole new album ready to go. It’s gonna 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.”

Regarding the musical direction of the new IN THIS MOMENT material, Howorth said: “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.”

Chris also talked about the evolution of the IN THIS MOMENT songwriting process and how it has affected the band’s new album. He said: “I’ve learned over the years. At the beginning of the band, it was all about the guitar riffs and the solos and shredding and trying to be metal as we could. I’ve kind of learned to open up to the song itself and particularly Maria‘s [Brink] vocal. That’s the key selling point of the band, that’s what everyone’s listening to, so I don’t wanna do anything to clutter that. So it’s kind of like the guitars are there, but they’re not there to be in the forefront; they’re there to support the whole song. And that’s what most of the new stuff is. But it’s still guitar driven. That’s IN THIS MOMENT.”

IN THIS MOMENT kicked off the “Half God Half Devil” North American tour on April 7 at Milwaukee, Wisconsin’s Eagles Ballroom. Support on the trek is coming from MOTIONLESS IN WHITE, AVATAR and GEMINI SYNDROME.
