Formed in 2005 by Maria Brink and Chris Howorth as Dying Star before changing musical direction and band name to In This Moment, this act hailing from Los Angeles, California has come a long way in recent years to inflict their own style of gothic metal and theatrical live performance on their legion of adoring fans. With their debut album Beautiful Tragedy being released in 2007 and five subsequent albums including their sixth and latest release, Ritual, in the Summer of 2017, In This Moment has performed on several notable tours and music festivals before arriving at the Brown County Veterans Memorial Arena in Green Bay, Wisconsin along with supporting acts Butcher Babies and Hollywood Undead on November 11th. In fact, In This Moment is no stranger to Green Bay as they have graced the third-largest city in the state of Wisconsin and home to the Cheeseheads earlier this year in support of their North American headlining Half God, Half Devil tour that kicked off on April 7, 2017 in Milwaukee and followed in Green Bay and 17 additional cities along with supporting acts Gemini Syndrome, Avatar and Motionless in White.

Recently nominated as the Best Hard Rock Artist and Best Live Band by the Alternative Press Music Awards in 2017, it is truly hard to find a band in this day and age that devotes as much passion and enthusiasm to their stage performance than In This Moment since the likes of American rock band KISS who rose to prominence in the mid-1970’s with their face paint, stage outfits and elaborate live performances. In the same fashion, lead vocalist Maria Brink captivates her onlookers with several wardrobe changes and emotional lyrics throughout the evening in a successful attempt to create a serious overtone and deep experience based, in many cases, on Brink’s own personal experiences and tragedies. Although Green Bay will have to say goodbye to In This Moment until they reappear again in the future in support of yet another widely anticipated tour, the memories will live on.
