ITM dropped sixth studio effort Ritual last summer, and Howorth says the group plan to duplicate that album’s creative process. Regarding songwriting with ITM vocalist Maria Brink, the musician says the two enter the studio completely “fresh.”

“The last two records we’ve done, we kind of went in with nothing,” he says. “Maybe a couple of ideas, or three or four little ideas, but really not much. The whole idea is to create it in the studio. And it’s fresh. And that’s what we did last time.”

Are you stoked for a new In This Moment album? Below, check out the new Guitar Interactive interview and be sure to see the band’s upcoming tour dates after the clip — they’re out on the road right now with Halestorm and New Years Day.
