It’s no secret that In This Moment’s latest album, ‘Blood,’ has had massive success, and the reception to both the album and the live performances have made the band one of the most unique and interesting rock acts today. The music and production definitely won over ShipRockers as the band performed on the Norwegian Pearl for ShipRocked 2014 earlier this year. While on the cruise we spoke to guitarist Chris Howorth and in Part 1 of our interview he talked about memorable fan moments, the growth of the band and much more.

In our second part of the interview (which can be seen above), Howorth goes deeper to talk about the advancements of In This Moment and becoming a headlining band. He also talks about how the success of ‘Blood’ is motivation for the band to step it up creatively. 2014 will be a big year for In This Moment as the band has signed a record deal with major label Atlantic. Howorth revealed the band will be working on a new album and was very honest about the nerves he felt with creating new material after the success of ‘Blood.’

He explains that there is a “magic formula” that happens between himself and vocalist Maria Brink while writing and creating ideas for new music. It’s evident fans appreciate this magic formula and are anxiously waiting to see what they come up with next. Check out Part 2 of our interview with guitarist Chris Howorth of In This Moment above.
