In anticipation of their sixth album, In This Moment released a video for the new single.
Friday, goth-metal band In This Moment released a video for their newest single, “Oh Lord.” The video was released in anticipation for their upcoming album, Ritual, which is being released by Atlantic Records and Roadrunner Records July 21.
The video puts viewers right in the middle of a live show, which are known for being dramatic and overly theatrical, featuring lots of smoke and costumes.
As one of the comments says, this track totally sounds like it should be the next intro to FX’s American Horror Story.
The upcoming album, Ritual, will be released on July 21 and is currently available for pre-order here. Pre-order bundles include custom In This Moment rosary beads and an instant download of “Oh Lord. ”
This summer, In This Moment will take their intense stage show on the road, featuring support by bands such as Motionless In White, Vimic, Little Miss Nasty and Starset.

Papa Roach and Billboard premiered the music video for “Gravity” off their latest album F.E.A.R (Face Everything and Rise), the song of a dysfunctional relationship a duet featuring In This Moment’s Maria Brink.
On the inspiration behind the song, front-man Jacoby Shaddix tells Billboard it’s his “testament to show other couples who may be going through a damaged relationship that they can get through it. My wife is my gravity… straight up.”
Brink came to guest on vocals as Papa Roach and In This Moment happened to be in the same studio during the recording for F.E.A.R, bassist Tobin Esperance calling their guest as ‘perfect.’ “Maria is just stunning,” says director Ezio Lucido, “the spectacle follows her wherever she goes, onstage or off, because of the power of her presence.”
Lucido brought forth the sense of gravity without it a literal representation throughout the video by filming in Theatre Deville among one hundred fifty hanging light-bulbs with the band’s hanging backdrop.
“We also wanted to be random at times in video, with portrait-style imagery… like with the heart in Jacoby’s hand at the end. I think that complemented some of the mystery in the video well. Even though we have these two identical rooms where one is flipped and charred, we didn’t overdo the reveal of that, so the viewer can sort of define things for themselves.”

In This Moment are bringing their explosive headlining tour for Black Widow back to North America this April, after a very successful run of dates in Europe with Fearless Vampire Killers and Starlet.

Their first album with Atlantic Records has held high on charts since its release in November last year, providing a rebirth for the band, as frontwoman Maria Brink told Loudwire before its release that the band had fallen apart with Blood, and that Black Widow was the time to “do or die.”
Brink has called Black Widow an album of turning weakness into strength and embracing her darker side; “It’s about being reborn, setting yourself free and realizing the balance in everything- the dark and the light.”
She added that she was certain people would embrace the album’s diversity and the different sides to the band that fans hadn’t experienced yet, a diversity that was pushed to the limits on Black Widow.
“I felt like we used to hold ourselves in a box based on fear,” Brink answers to whether the new direction makes her feel vulnerable or not- “Will the metal community accept us? Is this heavy enough? Is this not heavy enough?” she continues, “All these questions and boundaries we put on ourselves [before have become more like] ‘let’s do what we want and let’s free ourselves,’ and the whole idea of metal in general is about not conforming and not keeping us up in that box in rock ‘n roll.
“I felt like I always mind that to Chris and he really let us go [from traditional metal and his roots.]”
Howorth had commented before a few months ago that Black Widow was “by far the most challenging, exciting and rewarding experience we’re 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.”
