Los Angeles-based Metalcore outfit In This Moment will make a stop on their “Half God, Half Devil” tour at Warren’s WD Packard Music Hall on Sunday, July 9th. In support of Ritual, their July 21st album drop, the evening will feature the up-and-coming openers Motionless in White.
Founded in 2005 by frontwoman Maria Brink and guitarist Chris Howorth, the band saw some personnel changes early in their existence but have solidified into a real presence over the last ten years or so.
Tapped as a “Goth Metal” outfit, Brink’s posse is reminiscent of Rob Zombie’s style of musicianship: A decidedly-dark outlook, zombiesque fright makeup and a penchant to appeal to the Tim Burton crowd. That’s not a bad thing; their stage presence is undeniable.
Fear not, if Warren, Ohio is much too far for a wayward soul to travel, the band will also be headlining at Mansfield’s Ink in the Clink fest at the old Mansfield Reformatory on Friday, July 14th. Yep, that’s the same place where the classic film The Shawshank Redemption was shot back in the early ’90s.
