Chris Motionless Offers Update On New Motionless In White Album: “All That’s Really Left To Do Is Record The Vocals”

During a recent interview with Ethan Jackson of Topeka’s V100, Motionless In White frontman Chris Motionless offered an update on the band’s new album. According to him, “all that’s really left to do is record the vocals.”

Motionless said the following:

“All that’s really left to do is record the vocals, which I’m gonna start right after this tour. I was in California working with our producer Drew [Fulk] throughout a lot of the summer. And now it’s just, like, okay, well, we’ve got everything in place, all of the stuff’s written. Now it’s just time to record the vocals. The music’s all good. So, yeah, as soon as this tour is over, I’m going right there and working on it till it’s done.”

He continued when asked if the record will feature any “sequel songs”:

“There is currently one that is, but it’s kind of on the chopping block. We narrowed it down to 16 or 17 songs and we have to cut some of them. So as I’m in the studio and as everybody’s digesting these songs more and more, we’re gonna start cutting, and the sequel one is one of the ones that’s not locked. I love the song — I think it’d be great on the record — but it is a departure from what the vibe of the rest of the record is. So, I don’t know. We’ll see. But it is written.”

He also added the following about release plans:

“In my ideal scenario, I would love, like, February [or] March. But once it hits the label’s hands, that stuff changes. But I will be pushing for February or March, for sure.”

“We are really excited to release a new piece of music to bridge the gap between all of the covid downtime, and our next record coming in 2022. ‘Timebomb‘ felt like a great stand-alone track to touch on the heavier side of the band, and to give fans something to headbang to during our return to touring this September. It feels so good to be getting back to work, and ‘Timebomb‘ feels like a perfect way to celebrate the ‘next normal.’”

“I’m super excited to have been given the opportunity to combine both of my passions into one project. Chris and the guys trusted me with a vision, and I think we were able to put together something we are all very proud of. I hope all the fans enjoy—they were at the forefront of the project and without them this video wouldn’t have been possible. This one’s for you guys! Again, extreme gratitude to the band and to everyone at Roadrunner for giving me the opportunity to do something I’ve wanted to do for years. Hopefully, this is the first of many!”

Motionless In White Release “Synthwave Edition” Of “Voices”

Motionless In White have released a new “Synthwave Edition” of their song “Voices.” The original version of the track appears on the band’s 2017 album “Graveyard Shift.”

The group commented:

“During the many months of quarantine and downtime of 2020, we decided to not only use the time to work on new material for our next record, but also venture into musical territory that we had always wanted to explore and experiment with that we haven’t had a chance to touch on very much in our career. “Voices: Synthwave Edition” is the conclusion of what we call our “2020 Quarantine Experiments,” which also included orchestral versions of “Another Life” and “Eternally Yours”, a cover of The Killers “Somebody Told Me”, A remix of “Another Life” created by Caleb Shomo, and most recently, a deep dive into the roots of our heavier material with “Creatures X: To The Grave“. We are huge fans of artists like The Midnight, Carpenter Brut, Dance With The Dead, and many more spread across the synthwave and outrun spectrum, and wanted to try our hand at our own version of a song in this style. It was a really fun project to work on and such a fun genre to listen to. We hope you like it as much as we do, and thank you for all the support and positive feedback on all of the quarantine experiments we released.”

Motionless In White have premiered a new song titled “Creatures X: To The Grave.” The track was released as part of the 10th anniversary celebration for the band’s debut album “Creatures.”

Chris Motionless commented:

“After ten years of the most insane highs and lows that a band can experience, we are so proud to hit such a milestone as a record having its 10th anniversary.

We wanted to do something special to celebrate, so we decided to throw it back with a very ‘Creatures’-inspired track that includes some of the very same keyboard sounds and guitar riff styles that are found on that record, as well as many callback lyrics and themes to the original ‘Creatures’ song.

It’s been a very interesting year for everyone, but we’re happy to have found cool ways to still give fans something to hold on to throughout. Hope everyone enjoys this one. Happy Halloween.”

As previously reported, Motionless In White will be performing “Creatures” in full during a livestream concert on October 28.
