The "Headbanger's Ball" debut of IN THIS MOMENT's striking new video for "Beautiful Tragedy" is set for this Saturday, July 14. Directed by Robert Hall, whose special effects company, Almost Human Inc., is responsible for special makeup design in the upcoming feature film "Superbad", the clip features lead singer Maria Brink falling asleep in a bathtub and slipping into a surreal nightmare where a dark, evil figure looms amidst the burnt landscapes. The video is up on the band's MySpace page.
Commented guitarist Chris Howorth: "We spent a little more time on this new video. It's got more of a storyline with the live-action element. The shoot took place in the mountains near Santa Clarita, California, where there was a recent forest fire. It was a really different vibe."
Currently touring as part of the much-talked about free Ozzfest 2007 with metal's most celebrated and colorful acts, IN THIS MOMENT will play to an audience press were curious to figure out themselves. "We didn't know what to think," Howorth said. "It's packed. They were so loud! If today [July 12 in Auburn, WA] is an indication of how the rest of the tour is going to be, it is going to be one of the best tours to date."
Keeping busy on the tour front, IN THIS MOMENT will play with MEGADETH and THE CONFESSION on a nationwide trek soon after Ozzfest.
"Being direct support for MEGADETH is a dream," Howorth says. "It's up there with Ozzfest. They're one of my favorite bands of all time. We're really excited to be playing. A lot of MEGADETH fans will discover us for the first time."
