In This Moment has been rightly acclaimed as one of the most
combustible and emotionally invigorating bands in modern metal. Fueled
by singer Maria Brink's powerful voice and provocative persona, the
band has received steadily growing praise and commercial success for
its idiosyncratic melding of raw power, sonic experimentation, and
widescreen songcraft. "BLOOD" – In The Moment's fourth and most recent
full-length release – made a spectacular chart debut upon its 2012
arrival, entering the SoundScan/Billboard 200 at #15 while also coming
in at #1 on the "Top Hard Rock Albums" ranking. The album proved a
breakthrough, spawning such top 20 multi-format rock radio hits as
"Whore," "Adrenalize," and the top 10 title track.

Like any truly great hard rock band, In This Moment has spent much of
its decade-long existence on the road, building an increasingly
passionate fan following via headline tours and support runs alongside
such like-minded acts as fellow Atlantic recording groups Halestorm
and Shinedown. What's more, In This Moment has taken part in a long
list of blockbuster festivals and multi-artist tours, with highlights
including Ozzfest, Vans Warped Tour, Music As A Weapon V, Mayhem
Festival 2010, Rockstar Energy Drink Uproar Festival 2012, Carnival of
Madness 2013, Australia's Soundwave 2012, and the UK's legendary
Download Festival.
