"The Dream", the sophomore album from Southern California's IN THIS MOMENT, has sold more than 8,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 70 on The Billboard 200 chart.
Commented guitarist Chris Howorth: "IN THIS MOMENT would like to give a huge thank you to all our friends and fans who went out and bought our new CD last week. Not only did we have more than 100% increase over our last disc's first-week tally, but we debuted on the Billboard Top 200 chart right out of the gates. We couldn't be more proud. We have been blessed with the best fans. We are about a week into our tour with FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH and it's off to a roaring start. The whole FIVE FINGER camp welcomed us in with open arms and we are really happy to be out on tour with good friends. All the shows are packed and the fans are loving every band on the tour. It's a really diverse line up so there is something for everyone. Don't miss it."
IN THIS MOMENT video for the new single "Forever" can be viewed below. The clip was directed and shot in Los Angeles, California by David Brodsky (THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER, WHITECHAPEL, OPIATE FOR THE MASSES) of MyGoodEye. Some pictures from the video shoot can be found at this location.
"Forever" is the first single off "The Dream", which was released on September 30 via Century Media Records. The CD was recorded at a Las Vegas studio with producer Kevin Churko (OZZY OSBOURNE, SHANIA TWAIN) and "showcases the band's songwriting prowess and [singer Maria] Brink's beautiful, angelic voice that is simply captivating," according to a press release.
IN THIS MOMENT is represented by Mercenary Management, which is headed up by OZZY OSBOURNE/ex-ROB ZOMBIE bassist Rob "Blasko" Nicholson.
