Drummer Tom Hane has announced his departure from IN THIS MOMENT. He said in a statement: “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.”
Based out of Algonquin, Illinois, Tom joined IN THIS MOMENT in 2012. Barry Kerch of SHINEDOWN said about Tom: “Awesome guy. Awesome drummer. This guy is going to go very far.”
IN THIS MOMENT will be the special guest on this summer’s ROB ZOMBIE and KORN co-headlining amphitheater tour, dubbed “Return Of The Dreads”. The trek will kick off in July and will visit 25 North American cities, including Austin, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Toronto, Seattle, Las Vegas and more.
IN THIS MOMENT‘s fifth album, “Black Widow”, sold 36,000 copies in the U.S. during its first week of release to debut at No. 8 on The Billboard 200 chart.
IN THIS MOMENT signed with Atlantic Records in 2013 after completing its contract with Century Media Records.
