In This Moment Announces New Album “GODMODE”, Shares New Song “THE PURGE”
American rock band In This Moment, consisting of Maria Brink (lead vocals/piano), Chris Howorth (lead guitar), Travis Johnson (bass), Randy Weitzel (rhythm guitar) and Kent Diimmel (drums), has announced their eighth studio album “GODMODE” will be released on October 27, 2023 via BMG.
It is their first album in three years since the 2020 album “Mother”.
The album comprises 10-track, featuring a guest appearance from Spencer Charnas of American heavy metal band ICE NINE KILLS.
From the album, the band released the first single called “THE PURGE” on July 18, 2023.
The track was written by Maria Brink, Chris Howorth, Kane Churko, and Randy Weitzel. Produced by Kane Churko.
The accompanying music video was directed by Jensen Noen.
The band lead singer Maria Brink said of the song, “We are thrilled to unveil 'The Purge' to everyone. I am so grateful for how everything flowed to bring this song to life, both sonically and visually. Kane Churko and Jensen Noen helped to create this musical and cinematic experience with us and we could not have done it without them. The underlying message of the song is to not fall too deeply into the rabbit hole, everything is about finding balance. I had a lot of emotions building within me when I approached the song for the first time and after years of holding it all in I finally got to let it out! Enjoy.”
- Guitarist Chris Howorth added, “This song came from our time in lockdown. We all had our own personal experiences during the pandemic, and we all saw the social unrest unfolding daily tearing us apart. It was such a crazy time. Our band, like everything else, was stopped in its tracks. During the lockdown I was sending Maria musical ideas I was working on, and this one really resonated with her. She even said, 'This is gonna be our first single.' Fast forward a couple years and all the pent-up frustration and angst came pouring out in Maria's lyrics and performance, creating this crazy visceral song.”
