In This Moment have released a lyric video for their new track Roots.
The song will feature on the band’s sixth album Ritual which will launch on July 21 via Atlantic Records and follows Oh Lord, which came out in May.
The follow-up to 2014’s Black Widow was produced by the band’s longtime collaborator Kevin Churko and is said to push “their dark sound forward with a provocative sense of metallic blues and doom.”
Vocalist Maria Brink continues: “It’s like we’re going into the next realm. 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.”
Guitarist Chris Howorth adds: “When fans hear this, 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.”
The 12-track album features a cover of Phil Collins’ In The Air Tonight, while Judas Priest frontman Rob Halford guests on the track Black Wedding.
