Motionless In White have shared their official music video for “Necessary Evil,” which is directed by Max Moore (Code Orange, Of Mice & Men) and streaming now on the band’s official YouTube channel. “Necessary Evil” – which ships to Active Rock radio outlets nationwide today – is featured on the band’s new album GRAVEYARD SHIFT, which arrived earlier this year at #1 on Billboard’s “Hard Rock Albums” chart marking Motionless In White’s second consecutive #1 on the chart.
Tomorrow Motionless In White will kick-off their U.S. headline GRAVEYARD SHIFT TOUR with a performance at Las Vegas, Nevada’s Brooklyn Bowl. The coast-to-coast trek will see Motionless In White traversing the U.S. through the end of October where they will wrap up the run with a very special Halloween performance at Philadelphia, Pennsylvania’s Electric Factory. Motionless In White will be joined by Roadrunner label mates The Amity Affliction, Miss May I and William Control on the upcoming tour.
Touted as one of the “Most Anticipated” heavy albums of 2017, Alternative Press exclaimed, “MIW make sure to leave no gravestone unturned as they explore the vast underworld of rock,” on GRAVEYARD SHIFT, while Rock Sound declared, “Every cut brings something new to the table… tugging at the heartstrings one moment and cutting straight to the bone the next.” Kerrang! declared, “Motionless In White are out to prove themselves the kings of goth-punk and their leader, Chris Motionless, is ready to march them into the black.” GRAVEYARD SHIFT features the Top 20 Active Rock hit, “LOUD (F*ck It)” and the thunderous single “Eternally Yours.”
GRAVEYARD SHIFT follows 2014’s chart-topping REINCARNATE, which debuted at #1 on Billboard’s “Top Rock Albums” chart as well as at #9 on the overall SoundScan/Billboard 200. Motionless In White’s third studio album was highlighted by the blockbuster title track, a top 20 Active Rock radio favorite accompanied by a striking companion video now boasting nearly 14 million individual views at YouTube alone.
Founded in 2005, Motionless In White has won over audiences worldwide with their aggressive music and arresting imagery. The band – currently comprising lead singer Chris Motionless, guitarists Ryan Sitkowski and Ricky Horror, bassist Devin “Ghost” Sola, and drummer Vinny Mauro – have proven a ferocious and inventive live act, earning an increasingly fervent fan following via countless headline shows, festival sets, and tours alongside such iconic acts as Slipknot, Korn, and Breaking Benjamin.
