Maria Brink (Lead Vocals) along with original band mate Chris Howorth (Lead Guitar) from their days known as Dying Star travels to our neck of the woods on Friday, February 9th at the House of Blues Cleveland.  Though the lineup has had its changes throughout the years, In This Moment, now includes Kent Diimmel (Drums), Travis Johnson (Bass) and Randy Weitzel (guitar).

This American Metal Band from Los Angeles, CA has performed on several tours and festivals throughout their career including Ozzfest, Warped Tour, Mayhem Festival and Rock on the Range just to name a few.  This past year, we had the pleasure of seeing them rock the stages of Ink in the Clink in Mansfield, Ohio, our home base.  Their new album, “Ritual” dropped mid 2017 with the official video for “Roots” hitting YouTube on Halloween that same year.

Also joining the tour will be P.O.D., New Years Day and DED. That’s definitely a lineup you won’t want to miss.

P.O.D., a Christian nu-metal band out of San Diego, has been around since 1992. They have nine albums to their credit including the 2015 release, ‘The Awakening’. One of the newest members of the Mascot Label stable has been nominated three times for a Grammy Award.

New Years Day is a hard rock band also who also hails from California (Anaheim). The five piece alternative group has released three studio albums and five EPs. Their latest compilation, ‘Malevolence’ hit the shelves in 2015 and reached #45 on Billboard’s Top 200.
