IN THIS MOMENT To Release 'Black Widow' Album In November; First Single 'Sick Like Me' Streaming

An "audio visualizer" video for "Sick Like Me", the new single from IN THIS MOMENT, can be seen below. The song, which is now available via iTunes, is taken from the band's fifth album, "Black Widow", which will be released on November 18. The CD was once again helmed by Kevin Churko (OZZY OSBOURNE, FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH, HELLYEAH, PAPA ROACH) at his The Hideout Recording Studio in Las Vegas, Nevada.

IN THIS MOMENT last year inked a new deal with Atlantic Records, a division of Warner Music Group, following the completion of its contract with Century Media Records.

"Black Widow" will be available for pre-order on the iTunes Store and other digital retailers beginning October 7. The album will be offered to fans in an array of distinctive configurations, including a very special vinyl piece exclusively available at Atlantic's webstore. All pre-orders will receive four instant grat downloads prior to the album release, highlighted by the potent first single, "Sick Like Me", which arrives today at multi-format rock radio outlets nationwide. A companion video is currently in production, with a premiere date to be announced soon.

"'Black Widow' is definitely the darker part of me," says singer Maria Brink. "This album is about finding the weakness inside and turning it into strength. It's about being reborn, setting yourself free and realizing the balance in everything — the dark and the light.

"We are very excited to be releasing this album through Atlantic Records," she adds, "who have put out some of the greatest and most revered albums of all time. I am so ready and excited for the launch of this album. I think people will embrace its diversity and hearing different sides of us that they haven't experienced yet."

"Here we go again," says guitarist Chris Howorth. "This was by far the most challenging, exciting and rewarding experience we've 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. Fans, get ready for this ride — everything is going to the next level."

Howorth told Billboard earlier in the year that the band wanted its new studio effort to be "bigger and better" than 2012's "Blood", while "still keeping true to that same vibe." He added: "We feel like we found something and want to stick the flag in the ground on top of that hill."

"Black Widow" is expected to feature several special guests, including FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH singer Ivan Moody. IN THIS MOMENT frontwoman Maria Brink previously appeared on the FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH track "Anywhere But Here", which was included on "The Wrong Side Of Heaven And The Righteous Side Of Hell Volume 1" album.

IN THIS MOMENT has had its share of ups and downs since forming in 2005, but Brink told The Pulse Of Radio that the band is in a good place now. "To be where we are in our career, the strongest it's ever been, and like everything that I've ever, ever even dreamed of creating is happening," she said. "You know, it's just such a good message for listeners and anybody, you know, who hears our story, just 'cause people need to really understand the power that they hold within themselves."

IN THIS MOMENT released all four of its previous studio efforts through Century Media, including "Blood".

"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.
