IN THIS MOMENT's 'Blood' Cracks U.S. Top 15

"Blood", the fourth album from Southern California's IN THIS MOMENT, sold around 20,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 15 on the Billboard 200 chart.

The band's previous CD, "A Star-Crossed Wasteland", opened with 10,500 units back in July 2010 to land at position No. 40.

The band's sophomore effort, "The Dream", registered a first-week tally of more than 8,000 copies back in October 2008 to land at No. 70.

Released on August 14 via Century Media Records, "Blood" was once again produced by Kevin Churko, who has previously worked with OZZY OSBOURNE and FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH, among others.

IN THIS MOMENT began work on the new album just a few months following the departures of drummer Jeff Fabb and guitarist Blake Bunzel, who left the band late last year in order to join the backing group of "American Idol" finalist James Durbin. Fabb and Bunzel have since been replaced by Tom Hane (THYATEIRA) and Randy Weitzel (FLATLINE, 3/13, AMERICAN MASSACRE), respectively.
