In This Moment Officially Announce New Album, Stream First Single
I really, really hated In This Moment’s first two albums, Beautiful Tragedy and The Dream. But then something changed with 2012’s Blood; the band basically turned into a gothy pop-metal act — part Marilyn Manson, part Lacuna Coil — and I finally “got it.” Their next two albums — 2014’s Black Widow and 2017’s Ritual — both followed in this vein, and I’ve enjoyed all of those releases to some extent or another.
Now ITM have, as expected, formally announced their new album, Mother, and released the album’s first single, “The In-Between,” and it seems very much in the vein of those last three records. I don’t think “The In-Between” is quite as catchy as the best material from those other albums, but it’s growing on me; I’ve listened twice now, and the second listen was definitely more satisfying than the first. Put another way: I now predict Mother will be another fun ITM release.
Check out “The In-Between” via the below music video and decide for yourself. Mother comes out March 27 on Roadrunner/Atlantic, and can be pre-ordered here. The band kicks off a tour with kick off a tour with Black Veil Brides, DED, and Raven Black on March 24; get dates and tickets here.
