in this moment

In This Moment have released their dark take on the Phil Collins' classic, 'In The Air Tonight'.

The band, fronted by Maria Brink, breathe a dark new life into the track, which is featured on their forthcoming sixth studio album, 'Ritual', set for release via Atlantic Records this Friday 21st July. Here's 'In The Air Tonight'.

Maria tells us:

"We can't reproduce what [Phil Collins] did in a million years. It's one of the best songs ever. We did our own interpretation and made it a little more sinister, like our ritual."

'Ritual' also features the album's lead track, 'Oh Lord', as well as 'Roots' and you can see both tracks right here.

All digital pre-orders come with instant grat downloads of all three songs and exclusive pre-order bundles include custom In This Moment branded rosary beads and they are also available at the band's webstore at

'Ritual' is produced by longtime collaborator and multiple GRAMMY® Award nominee Kevin Churko (Ozzy Osbourne, Five Finger Death Punch) and sees the band pushing their dark sound forward with a provocative sense of metallic blues and doom.

Highlights also include 'Black Wedding', a walk down the aisle of musical madness that sees Maria Brink sharing the mic with legendary Judas Priest frontman Rob Halford.

Lead guitarist Chris Howorth told us:

"When fans hear ['Ritual'], I want them to feel the music, whether they take away sadness, anger, or happiness.

"As a kid, I remember listening to records and putting them on repeat over and over again. I'd love for the world to listen and absorb this as a piece of work."

In This Moment are currently holding their ritual in the form of a major North American tour, featuring support from like-minded bands Motionless In White, Vimic, Little Miss Nasty and Starset.

In This Moment are:
Maria Brink – Vocals
Chris Howorth – Guitar
Travis Johnson – Bass
Randy Weitzel – Guitar
Tom Hane – Drums
