Fan-filmed video footage of IN THIS MOMENT performing the song “Black Widow” on February 28 in Glasgow, United Kingdom can be seen below.
In a recent interview with AltWire, IN THIS MOMENT singer Maria Brink stated about the band’s current headlining live show: “I think when you are headlining, you are performing at your top level because you have the time limit that you want, so you can do the exact show, and give people the journey that you want them to see, because you are calling the shots. So it’s you creating that night, that’s your moment to shine, nobody’s putting any boundaries on you. When you are opening for someone else, you can’t use all your gear and you can’t have all the bells and whistles. When you’re headlining, it’s up to you and you’re in charge of captivating everyone that evening. I love it!”
She added: “I’m OCD [laughs], so I’m literally obsessive and compulsive, and this is a good example of how you can take your flaws and turn them into something beautiful and powerful. I apply my obsessive compulsiveness to my career. I direct our live shows, so the way you see the visuals, the wardrobe charges and the flow, that’s me really obsessing over the entire show and every little piece to it. The same with our music videos, the same with anything you see, that’s me obsessing and creating this big master plan and then trying to make it all work at the same time. I co-directed our last two videos and directed our new video, ‘Sex Metal Barbie’, by myself, so I am really obsessive over it and I am all about trying to bring what is in my head to life.”
IN THIS MOMENT‘s new album, “Black Widow”, sold around 36,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 8 on The Billboard 200 chart. The CD arrived in stores on November 17, 2014.
