Things are starting to get interesting for In This Moment fans. The band has just revealed the artwork and album title for their upcoming disc, which we now know will be titled Ritual.

The artwork for the disc is an interesting piece with singer Maria Brink appearing to be undergoing some sort of ritual as she levitates above the ground in a room where symbols are drawn upon the floor.

The buzz for new music has been building over the past month, with guitarist Chris Howorth confirming during a radio interview with Razor 94.7 that their album was done. At the time, he hinted that new music might be coming as soon as April, but so far a song has yet to hit the airwaves. However, the group has been playing a new song called “River of Fire” on their recent tour dates.

Another new track called “Oh Lord” is expected to be the single from the album and the band recently started playing that song as well during recent shows. A performance of the track at the Fort Rock festival can be seen below.

Howorth stated of the new album, “It’s different and cool and I think it’s a different step for us but that I think our fans are really gonna like. Stylistically, I think we went a little bit more raw, you know — like, not so much campiness like ‘Sex Metal Barbie.’ Not that there was anything wrong with that — we’re always trying to experiment and do something different — but it’s more serious, I guess, and a little more stripped down. There’s still electronics and stuff, and it’s still In This Moment, but it’s a little more stripped down, I guess, and maybe swampy and bluesy a little bit in certain elements, but still metal, you know, still us.”

The band worked on the album at The Hideout in Las Vegas with producer Kevin Churko. At present, the Ritual album has a tentative July 14 street date. Stay tuned as more details on the album are revealed and look for the group on tour at these stops.
