IN THIS MOMENT Signs With ATLANTIC

Southern California's IN THIS MOMENT has inked a deal with Atlantic following the completion of its contract with Century Media, the independent record label which released the band's first four albums. The group will enter the studio later this month to begin recording the follow-up to its 2012 commercial breakthrough, "Blood". IN THIS MOMENT will once again be working with heavy rock producer extraordinaire Kevin Churko (OZZY OSBOURNE, FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH, HELLYEAH), and singer Maria Brink couldn't be happier. "He's like a member of the band," she told The Pulse Of Radio. "He's a very vital, important part of IN THIS MOMENT to me. He really works well with me in the studio, he encourages me the right way, he lets me go crazy and then I cry in the studio, 'cause I'm all about really finding that raw, true emotion deep inside of you. He really supports me on the whole journey and he brings the best out in me."

The band is scheduled to start work on the album on February 23, with guitarist Chris Howorth telling Billboard.com that they want their fifth studio effort to be "bigger and better" than "Blood", while "still keeping true to that same vibe."

The group hopes to have a new single ready by the summer and intends either way to have new music available in time for a couple of summer tours that are under consideration.

"Blood" was IN THIS MOMENT's highest-charting album, reaching No. 15 on the Billboard album chart, while the title track became the band's first-ever Top 10 hit at rock radio.
