In This Moment’s “Blood” Album Certified Gold

In This Moment’s 2012 album “Blood” was officially RIAA certified gold, as having moved 500,000 units specifically in the United States, as of May 10th, 2017. This accomplishment also marks Century Media Records’ first gold record in company history.

Chris Howorth (guitars) states: “Maria and I are grateful beyond words for this wonderful achievement and it’s an incredible feeling to know so many people appreciate the music on this album. Right before we went in to create the ‘Blood’ album two of our original band members and our manager quit on us (they didn’t believe) and it left us with a do or die situation.

“We chose to let go of all fear and make the album we’ve always wanted. Huge thanks to Robert Kampf and Don Robertson at Century Media, Kevin Churko for never doubting us, Bill McGathy for stepping in at the perfect time, our band members for bringing it to life onstage and our fans for supporting us thru everything! We couldn’t have done this without you! Much love!”

Don Robertson (Century Media President) further adds: “When Chris and Maria played us the first two demos for the album, I knew it was going to be the special and ground breaking record that they were determined to make. We are very proud to have the company’s first certified gold record to be from our friends in In This Moment. Congrats to them for persevering and bringing the vision to life!”

Gemini Syndrome Releases “Sorry, Not Sorry” Video

Gemini Syndrome just debuted the “Sorry, Not Sorry” official music video. taken off the “Memento Mori” album. In addition to the video coming online, look for Gemini Syndrome on the of the “Half God, Half Devil” tour with In This Moment, Motionless In White, and Avatar later this month. The band comments:

“Our brand-new music video for ‘Sorry Not Sorry’ tells the story about a husband and wife who have lost themselves in vanity and greed. The woman injects herself with large painful needles and cuts her face, while the man chops up a briefcase full of cash and snorts it like drugs. As the wife sits down with her husband at the dinner table, she looks cartoonish, while the husband is sweating over a large mirrored plate of money. Things then really start to take a turn for the worse for them both and you gotta watch to find out their fate.

“The song itself shines a light on the collective mental illness that our society seems to be infected with. Now more than ever, it’s so easy to lose ourselves in a false virtual reality that glorifies materialism and self-seeking satisfaction. We’ve become ironic memes of ourselves, social zombies lost in our devices, where tangible human interaction has become unnecessary and burdensome. We’re desensitized from only seeing others and ourselves through self-imposed filters. It’s time to wake up from the spell and look ourselves, and each other, in the eye.

“We are also extremely grateful to be a part of the ‘Half God, Half Devil’ Tour with our friends In This Moment, Motionless In White, and Avatar. It’s an honor to be a part of this amazing package and share the stage with such great bands, and good friends, old and new. If there are still tickets available in your city, get them now, as shows have been selling out every night!”

Northlane Releases Surprise Album “Mesmer”

Northlane just released surprise fourth album “Mesmer” worldwide. The album appeared with no forewarning on digital services this morning.

Recorded throughout September 2016 in New Jersey with producer David Bendeth (Bring Me The Horizon, Paramore, A Day To Remember), this is Northlane’s defining statement, presented directly to the fans in an unorthodox manner. The band comments:

“Through determination, hard work, sacrifice, and a bit of luck, we are able to travel the world taking our music to fans both old and new. We’re able to spend time crafting the music we want to hear with the benefit of not having to leave the studio early to go and work a job. To an artist, these are real luxuries. We appreciate them more than anything and we’re in the position of being able to do this because of you — our incredible fans who continue to support us. You free us to be the artists we want to be.

“This is our way of rewarding our fans for everything they’ve given us. What our music means to you is what it means to us. Art is an experience, and to us it reserves no room for competition, and the only accolade that matters to us is the place this holds in your heart.

“Releasing ‘Mesmer’ in this way has been right for us at this moment in time. We have grown immeasurably as people and as a band through the toughest recording process we’ve ever endured. We’ve been tested every step of the way and have come out the other side with something we are truly proud of. We didn’t want to keep it from you a moment longer than we had to. We felt we owed it to this album to try and think creatively about every aspect of the way people would experience Mesmer, like a gift from us to you that is being unboxed. We wanted to make everyon’s discovery of this moment special.”

Feral Finishes Writing New Album Due Out This Year

Following the release of the “From The Mortuary” EP back in December, Swedish death metal group Feral is glad to announce today that the writing for the next full-length album is finally finished. Feral issued this statement:

“We have been working hard since the release of ‘Where Dead Dreams Dwell’ to not once again end up with a four year gap between albums, but you can all rest assured that this is not something that has been hastily thrown together in order to meet a deadline.

“On contrary, we have put more time in than ever before to fine-tune the material as much as possible in an early stage. ‘Where Dead Dreams Dwell’ is a though album to follow for us, since we are extremely satisfied with the final results which we landed on. But there is a togetherness in the new material that can only come from playing together for a long time, and doing it often. We are a rehearsing band, and would never write songs in the studio as we record them.

“At the moment we are rehearsing and making the finishing touches to all of the new songs, which are 15 in total. Most of them are already sounding like they should with no further tweaking needed and once all of the material is 100% know by heart and well thought through we will book the studio to record. After recording the songs that fit together the best will but assembled to make out the album. Some fitting album titles have been thrown around, but this will be announced at a later time.

“The new songs range from pure Swedish Death Metal with eerie leads to crushing mid-tempo and slower track as well as some of the fastest and most ‘technical’ songs Feral has ever put out, all with our punk and thrash influences clearly imbued.

“Our hope is to have the new album out during 2017, but have in mind that a lot of the things surrounding a new release are out of the bands hands, such as formats and release dates. So no more precise info can be given at the moment.

“Furthermore we have other plans for 2017 as well; last year’s EP ‘From the Mortuary’ will finally see a vinyl release! More info in this is to be revealed soon, but it will be a really good-looking and sounding piece with a dedicated vinyl mastering. We will also participate on some very promising compilation- and split LPs with other really great bands from Sweden.

“Dead eyes see what the living can only dream.”
