IN THIS MOMENT Guitarist Says Response To New Material Has Been 'Overwhelmingly Good'
October 9, 2017
Rei Haycraft of Fuel The Scene magazine conducted an interview with IN THIS MOMENT at his year's Louder Than Life festival on October 1 in Louisville, Kentucky. You can now watch the chat below.
Asked how the material from IN THIS MOMENT's latest album, "Ritual", has been going over live, guitarist Chris Howorth said: "The reception has been overwhelmingly good all across the board. It's kind of weird now… Because album sales are so different, with streams and everything, you don't really notice it, except for on the live front, you see the people showing up and singing the songs, and you know that they're getting it and hearing it. Otherwise, it's hard to kind of tell."
Added guitarist Randy Weitzel: "When we play a song for the first time, people are just sort of staring at you. But as tours go by, they start to get to know the lyrics and it livens up a little bit. So I think it's going pretty good."
Released this past July, "Ritual" was made available by Atlantic Records in partnership with Roadrunner Records. The album features a guest appearance from JUDAS PRIEST frontman Rob Halford on the song "Black Wedding".
"Ritual" was produced by IN THIS MOMENT's longtime collaborator — and multiple Grammy Award nominee — Kevin Churko (FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH, OZZY OSBOURNE).
