In This Moment have released a brand-new single and video, The Purge.
The track is taken from the band’s upcoming eighth album Godmode, which follows 2020 4/5-rated LP Mother and is due out on October 27 via BMG.
While guitarist Chris Howorth teases that, “We absolutely cannot wait for everyone to hear what we’ve created,” with regards to the record, we’ve got a new single and video to dig into first…
Speaking about that, vocalist Maria Brink enthuses: “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.”
“This song came from our time in lockdown,” continues Chris. “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.”
