In This Moment

Feb 6, 2018 | 6:30PM

Live Nation presents In This Moment live in concert on Tuesday, February 6 at 6:30 p.m. at the Victory Theatre in Evansville along with special guests P.O.D., New Years Day and DED.

 

Throughout history, art rejoices and revels in the wisdom of women. On their sixth full-­length album Ritual, In This Moment unearth a furious and focused feminine fire from a cauldron of jagged heavy metal, hypnotic alternative, and smoky voodoo blues. “It’s like we’re going into the next realm,” asserts Maria. “I had a conviction of feeling empowered in my life and with myself. I always write from a personal place, and I needed to share that sense of strength. I’ve never been afraid to hold back. Sometimes, I can be very suggestive. However, I wanted to show our fans that this is the most powerful side of myself and it’s without overt sexuality. It’s that deeper serious fire inside of my heart.”

The group spent two years supporting their biggest album yet 2014’s Black Widow. Upon release, it seized their highest position to date on the Billboard Top 200, bowing at #8. Simultaneously, it clinched #3 on the Hard Rock Albums chart and spawned a series of hits such as “Sick Like Me,” “Big Bad Wolf,” and “Sex Metal Barbie”—all cracking 8 million Spotify streams each and topping Rock Radio. Meanwhile, the band’s signature smash “Whore” crossed the 20-­million mark. Following a high-profile summer 2016 tour with Kron and Rob Zombie, the duo began writing.

“We always want to grow and evolve,” said Maria. That progression shines through the first single “Oh Lord.” A minimal drum and handclap echoes while guitars shiver and shake as the frontwoman delivers an undeniable refrain. Elsewhere, “Roots” practically opens up the earth with its sheer seismic force, while “Witching Hour” dances around the flames to a new wave-inspired groove.

The Ritual has begun, and In This Moment ignite a brighter fire than ever before here. It’s an evolution. It’s a statement. It’s In This Moment.
