Platinum-certified alternative metal outfit IN THIS MOMENT are apparently planning a headlining trek for this summer called ‘The Dark Horizon Tour‘
Support on the run is rumored to be coming from industrial metalcore act MOTIONLESS IN WHITE as well as Texas metalcore group FIT FOR A KING.
The rumors ignited from a venue listing which shows that tour hitting the First Interstate Arena in Billings, MT on July 22nd.
The run of dates has yet to be officially announced.
IN THIS MOMENT recently provided a new song, “I Would Die For You“, to Lakeshore Records‘ “John Wick: Chapter 4 – Original Motion Picture Soundtrack”, which arrived on March 24.
The “John Wick: Chapter 4 – Original Motion Picture Soundtrack” features an original score by Tyler Bates (“John Wick”, “Guardians Of The Galaxy”), and Joel J. Richard (“John Wick”, “The Andromeda Strain”). Bates and Richard, their scores an integral part of the success of the first three installments of “John Wick”, return with another masterclass in high-intensity compositions that feature an array of instruments — including treated piano, mandolin, acoustic and electric guitar, bass, harmonica orchestra, synths, and found object percussion.
Bates also produced songs performed by Lola Colette with Nick and Sam Wilkerson of the punk band WHITE REAPER on drums and bass respectively, as well as tracks with IN THIS MOMENT and Manon Hollander. In addition, the track co-written and produced by Bates with vocals by avant pop phenomenon and cast member Rina Sawayama, “Eye For An Eye“, is available digitally. The Lionsgate film directed by Chad Stahelski and starring Keanu Reeves, Donnie Yen, Bill Skarsgård, Laurence Fishburne, Hiroyuki Sanada, Shamier Anderson, Lance Reddick, Rina Sawayama, Scott Adkins and Ian McShane is in theaters and IMAX now.
Bates spoke with Entertainment Weekly about his collaboration with IN THIS MOMENT, saying: “‘I Would Die For You’ is a song that I wrote with Maria Brink and Chris Howorth of IN THIS MOMENT and [also] produced. Chad, literally, out of the blue, called me up, and he’s like, ‘Yo, Tyler, do you know this singer, I love her, Maria-something, she’s in this band, IN THIS…?’ I’m like, ‘IN THIS MOMENT?’ He said, ‘Yeah, that’s it!’ I said, ‘I’m actually working on their new record right now. [Laughs] They are real fans of ‘John Wick’, which is really cool.”
Bates regularly transitions from scoring some of the world’s biggest film and television franchises, such as “Guardians Of The Galaxy” and “John Wick”, to rocking massive audiences in the world of rock music, and back to the studio again writing and producing records with artists like HEALTH, BUSH, IN THIS MOMENT and STARCRAWLER, to name a few. In 2004, he created the menacing audio backdrop for the popular Zack Snyder reboot of “Dawn Of The Dead“, beginning a string of nearly a dozen box office number ones that have contributed to well over five billion dollars cumulative worldwide box office gross for his projects.
Bates then teamed up with Snyder again for the films “300”, “Watchmen” and “Sucker Punch”. His oeuvre expanded to include films like “Atomic Blonde”, “The Devil’s Rejects”, “The Day The Earth Stood Still”, “William Friedkin’s Killer Joe”, and TV shows like “Californication”, “Punisher”, “The Purge”, “Kingdom”, “Salem”, “The Exorcist” and more. More recently, Bates scored the blockbuster “Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs And Shaw”, “Deadpool 2”, “Jamie Foxx’s Dayshift”, Ti West’s 2022 releases “X” and “Pearl”, “The Spy Who Dumped Me”, plus Genndy Tartakovsky‘s acclaimed animated series “Samurai Jack” and “Primal” on Adult Swim.
After scoring Cirque Du Soleil’s “R.U.N.”, Bates embarked on the 2022 world tour in support of Jerry Cantrell‘s latest album “Brighten”, which he also co-produced. With more new projects on the horizon including “Agent Elvis”, Tyler Bates will undoubtedly continue to redefine what a composer is as a shapeshifting artist who’s architected one of the most kaleidoscopic resumes in music.
IN THIS MOMENT‘s last release was “Blood 1983” which arrived last October. The EP commemorated the tenth anniversary of IN THIS MOMENT‘s gold-certified album “Blood” which was released back in 2012.
