Century Media Records has set a July 13 U.S. release date for "A Star Crossed Wasteland", the third album from Southern California's IN THIS MOMENT. The CD was recorded at The Wolves Den studio in Las Vegas, Nevada with producer Kevin Churko (OZZY OSBOURNE, FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH).
A new video teaser where fans get a sneak peek into the album's aggressive opening track, "The Gun Show", can be viewed below.
IN THIS MOMENT filmed a cowboy-themed video for "The Gun Show" in the Los Angeles area on May 16. The clip was helmed by director David Brodsky (THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER, WHITECHAPEL, OPIATE FOR THE MASSES) of MyGoodEye, who previously worked on IN THIS MOMENT's "Forever" video.
Commented guitarist Chris Howorth: "We just wrapped shooting our newest video for 'The Gun Show' and every member of IN THIS MOMENT feels like we were in a car crash.
"We haven't played any shows since December and after a full day of headbanging we all have legitimate cases of whiplash, but it was well worth it. We all had a blast and know this video is gonna turn out awesome!
"We enlisted our good friend David Brodsky to direct the video.
"We met Dave a few years ago and became friends and after working with him on our 'Forever' video in 2008, he was our first choice for 'The Gun Show'.
"Dave is a very talented guy who has a real passion for making videos and we consider it an honor to be working with him again.
"Maria Brink [IN THIS MOMENT vocalist] and Dave came up with a really interesting treatment for the video and I don't wanna spoil anything, but it involves guns, cowboys, hot cowgirls and headbanging. We also invited a small group of fans to help us make the video extra special. We were feeding off their enthusiasm and energy and it just made the whole thing kick more ass.
"We always love to involve our fans; without our fans we wouldn't even be doing this.
"I can speak for the whole band in saying this is the most fun we have had making a video and we can’t wait to see the results in a couple of weeks. I think people are going to be very pleasantly surprised by the song and the video."
"The Gun Show" single will be released digitally via iTunes on June 1.
IN THIS MOMENT has been confirmed for this summer's Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival tour, which is scheduled to kick off on July 10 in San Bernardino, California. Also scheduled to appear on the Mayhem Festival Stage are ATREYU, NORMA JEAN and 3 INCHES OF BLOOD.
IN THIS MOMENT's sophomore album, "The Dream", 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.
IN THIS MOMENT is represented by Mercenary Management, which is headed up by OZZY OSBOURNE/ex-ROB ZOMBIE bassist Rob "Blasko" Nicholson.
