Southern California’s IN THIS MOMENT has released the following statement:
“Dear Chicagoland fans, we hate to do this, but we are forced to postpone tonight’s [Friday, January 10] show at Home Bar in Arlington Heights due to illness. Maria [Brink, vocals] has strep throat and cannot talk, much less sing; she is also running a high fever. We were hoping she would wake up today feeling better but her symptoms are much worse, leaving us no alternative other than postponing.
“We do not take this lightly and ask for your patience and understanding.
“A rescheduled date will be announced very shortly where all tickets will be honored.
“As for this evening: BUTCHER BABIES, DEVOUR THE DAY and ALL HAIL THE YETI will all still perform. This show will be free.”
IN THIS MOMENT will release “Blood Special Edition”, a two-disc set featuring the band’s breakthrough album “Blood” and the bonus live DVD “Blood At The Orpheum”, on January 21, 2014 in North America via Century Media. The set includes a bonus cover of the NINE INCH NAILS track “Closer” on “Blood”, and the live DVD contains a full 100-minute concert shot in Madison, Wisconsin earlier this year, behind-the-scenes footage and interviews.
In Europe, “Blood At The Orpheum” will be released on February 17 as a limited-edition standalone DVD, and digitally in an audio-only format.
“Blood At The Orpheum” was filmed on May 21, 2013 in Madison, Wisconsin. IN THIS MOMENT partnered up with longtime supporter, radio station WJJO, as part of their Mayday Maylay concert series. The band had a bunch of surprises in store for this show, including rarely played songs from their catalog and an all-new stage show created specifically for this concert.
IN THIS MOMENT’s DVD was directed by Brad Golowin who is known for his work with MISS MAY I and 10 YEARS, to name a few.
IN THIS MOMENT’s “The Hellpop Tour II” launched January 2 in Portland, Oregon and will wrap January 25 in Cape Coral, Florida. The band will then make a return engagement on the Shiprocked cruise January 26-30, which sets sail out of Miami, Florida to Great Stirrup Cay, Bahamas. Joining IN THIS MOMENT on “Hellpop II” are BUTCHER BABIES in direct support, DEVOUR THE DAY and ALL HAIL THE YETI.
