Motionless In White released their latest offering, Disguise, on June 7, 2019 via Roadrunner Records. The album is the fifth studio album released from the band and reveals an evolution in their musical style. Motionless In White are well known for their goth, metalcore sound, however, on Disguise they have added some nu metal elements, which adds a fantastic dynamic to their music. This is most prevalent on the track “Headache”, which has the perfect mix of electronic, industrial metal and nu metal. Another standout track, the song “Another Life”, is the closest thing to a ballad that you’ll hear from a metal band and it is hauntingly beautiful.
In April, Motionless In White released two singles from Disguise, the title track “Disguise” and “Brand New Numb”. They also released a music video for “Disguise” and an official audio video of “Brand New Numb”. The video for the heavy, hard hitting song “Disguise” is filled with shots of the band performing in an empty, derelict room interspersed with images of a horrific creature. The video, directed by Jeremy Danger and Travis Shinn, is a perfect visual companion to the song.
During the summer, Motionless In White was part of Alice Cooper’s tour and reached a new audience. Older fans who attended the show in Oklahoma City at the Zoo Amphitheatre were obviously impressed with the performance and most importantly the music. During the show, Motionless In White included one track off the new album, “Brand New Numb”, and the band received a positive response from the crowd, who enjoyed the performance.
Motionless In White will be on the road through October with special guests We Came As Romans, After The Burial and Twiztid. The band’s website has the official video for “Disguise”, along with several audio videos for other songs off the album and a documentary “The Making of ‘Disguise’”. Fans can pickup merchandise, keep up with announcements and find tour dates with links to purchase tickets to a show.
