Seeing bands in their infancy, when nobody knows about them, is quite an experience. Especially when said band is packing massive venues now. Motionless In White is one of those bands – their run of success seemingly started with breakout album Creatures, but the groundwork was laid years earlier, when the band toured hard and played to anyone that would listen. Given their success and work ethic, it’s clear that those years of cutting their teeth on the road helped prepare them for their current status.
All bands have to start somewhere, though. Here’s a video of the band playing what appears to be an unknown Warped Tour date, likely around 2008. And given the band’s experience now, it’s certainly surprising to see what they looked like back then. Warning – the sound quality here is not good, but then again, it is from almost 10 years ago.
With acclaimed rock/metal band System Of A Down releasing a new album this year after a long hiatus, perhaps it’s only fitting that Motionless In White, who are also releasing a new album in 2017, attempt a cover of SOAD’s “Chop Suey!”. The single, which comes from 2001’s breakout album Toxicity, remains a staple today. Admittedly, the live cover isn’t that great, but given by the crowd’s reaction to it, I’m not sure it matters that much. Check out the song below via our friends at Rock Feed.
Motionless In White have been deep into the hype period for their impending new record, “Graveyard Shift” for months now. Before the album was officially announced, fans were able to sink their teeth into the nostalgic thrasher that is “570”. However, months later, it’s left them wondering just how close they are to hearing more new music.
Fans of the band can worry no more, as Motionless In White have headed out on The End Is Here tour for the Winter and brought along a new song, “Eternally Yours”. This specific entry sounds like a combination of everything that worked well on “Reincarnate”. And how about that belter of a chorus? This should give fans even more reason to head out and check out the tour. For those immediately interested however, a YouTube link of the song being debuted live last night at the band’s stop in Arizona is below. Are you excited for “Graveyard Shift”?

Vans Warped Tour is one of those legendary festivals that always hosts some of the best bands in the rock/metal/hardcore scene. Warped 2016 was no exception by the slightest! It was filled with good times, friends, bands, mosh pits, stage dives, high fives, fun in the sun & great memories among other things. I had the opportunity to cover both the Pomona, CA & Phoenix, AZ dates of the tour.
Below is a recap video of both days along with photo galleries of the bands: Volumes, Every Time I Die, The Color Morale, Chelsea Grin, Whitechapel, Vanna, Waka Flocka, Motionless In White, Gideon, Oceans Ate Alaska, Veil of Maya, In Hearts Wake & Cruel Hand.
