On December 17, 2009, Rustyn Rose of conducted separate interviews with Maria Brink (vocals) and Chris Howorth (guitar) of Southern California's IN THIS MOMENT. Both chats are now available for streaming below.

IN THIS MOMENT is preparing to enter the studio to begin recording the follow-up to last year's "The Dream". Howorth recently stated, "We have been working on new music since Warped Tour ended. Maria Brink and I have been bashing our heads together non-stop trying to come up with the best possible songs and the best combination of melody and aggression as we want the new album to be even bigger and better than anything else we've done before. We want all the melody and depth of 'The Dream' along with some of the darkness and aggression of 'Beautiful Tragedy'. We feel really good about what we have demoed so far and will be working non-stop through the holidays."

He continued, "The plan is to enter the studio with Kevin Churko (OZZY OSBOURNE, FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH) in mid-February.

"We are really excited to be working with Kevin again; he is such an amazing talent and knowing he will be involved just makes us even more confident in our ability to make the next record better than anything prior.

"We are planning to have the record done in time for a summer 2010 release date to coincide with big juicy summer festival tour. We could tell you what tour it was, but then we would have to kill you."

IN THIS MOMENT's sophomore album, "The Dream", sold more than 8,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 70 on The Billboard 200 chart.

IN THIS MOMENT video for the single "Forever" was directed and shot in Los Angeles, California by David Brodsky (THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER, WHITECHAPEL, OPIATE FOR THE MASSES) of MyGoodEye.

"Forever" was the first single off "The Dream", which was released on September 30, 2008 via Century Media Records.

IN THIS MOMENT is represented by Mercenary Management, which is headed up by OZZY OSBOURNE/ex-ROB ZOMBIE bassist Rob "Blasko" Nicholson.
