In This Moment Announce 2016 ‘Hell Pop’ U.S. Tour With Hellyeah + More
In This Moment's 'Hell Pop' branded tour is back for another installment that will see the theatrical outfit embark on a series of headlining dates across the United States. Serving as direct support will be the supergroup Hellyeah alongside heavy rockers Shaman's Harvest and the face-painted, anthemic outfit Sunflower Dead.
The tour is set to begin on June 18 in Des Moines, Iowa, then extends south for a total of five Texas stops before heading out to the East Coast, hitting Florida and working its way up as far up as West Virginia before finishing off in Peoria, Ill. on July 12.
In This Moment have been in the studio working on their follow-up to 2014's Black Widow. The band posted a teaser clip from the studio on their Facebook page (seen below) with the hashtag #thehideout and #kevinchurko, the latter of which reveals who will be producing the record. Hellyeah are also expected to have a new record out soon, having already released the single, "Human."
Tickets for the tour will go on sale this Friday (April 1) at 10AM ET.
Both In This Moment and Hellyeah will be quite active on the road this year. Led by frontwoman Maria Brink, In This Moment will be sharing the stage with Korn and Rob Zombie on their co-headlining summer run, which kicks off Jul 17. Hellyeah will be headlining the 'We're All In This Together' tour with Escape the Fate, New Years Day and From Ashes to New. For a full list of dates, click here.
Drummer Tom Hane recently exited the band after five years behind the kit with In This Moment. He issued a statement concerning his departure, detailing, “I have had an amazing four years with some amazing people and wouldn’t trade it for anything. However, I have struggled to be truly happy, creatively. The reason I started drumming / writing music was because it made me happy. I didn’t want to stay for the wrong reasons. This WILL NOT be a departure from music for me. I have some great things on the horizon and hope you all join me in my new journey. I’d also like to thank every single person, fan and colleague that made the last four years so special. You all mean the world to me. See you soon.”
