“Blood”, the title track of the fourth album from Southern California’s IN THIS MOMENT, has cracked the Top 10 at Active Rock radio. “Blood” is currently the No. 9 single on the chart, with over 1000 spins a week and power rotations at KPBI/Denver, KQXR/Boise and WJJO/Madison. “Blood” is also the No. 1-selling single of all time for longtime label Century Media Records; it has sold nearly 100,000 downloads since its release and shows no signs of slowing down.
American fans can catch IN THIS MOMENT on tour through mid-December with their first set of dates as headliners, and the next set alongside HALESTORM for the Jägermeister tour kicking off on November 8.
“Blood” sold around 20,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 15 on the Billboard 200 chart.
The band’s previous CD, “A Star-Crossed Wasteland”, opened with 10,500 units back in July 2010 to land at position No. 40.
IN THIS MOMENT‘s sophomore effort, “The Dream”, registered a first-week tally of more than 8,000 copies back in October 2008 to land at No. 70.
Released on August 14 via Century Media Records, “Blood” was once again produced by Kevin Churko, who has previously worked with OZZY OSBOURNE and FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH, among others.
IN THIS MOMENT began work on the new album just a few months following the departures of drummer Jeff Fabb and guitarist Blake Bunzel, who left the band late last year in order to join the backing group of “American Idol” finalist James Durbin. Fabb and Bunzel have since been replaced by Tom Hane (THYATEIRA) and Randy Weitzel (FLATLINE, 3/13, AMERICAN MASSACRE), respectively.
