The Journey with Motionless in White
Motionless in White originated in Scranton, Pennsylvania, 17 years ago. In 2005, the band’s founding members were still in high school. While their sound is often neatly described as heavy metal, listeners and fans know there’s so much more to Motionless in White’s music.
In an interview with The Aquarian’s Amanda Ferrante Batista, the band’s front man, Chris “Motionless” Cerulli, was asked what inspires the band’s “unique metalcore act” and “plethora of different instruments and production elements.” Cerulli said that he loves so many different genres of music, so why not “go all out.” He said that the band likes to show what they’re “fully capable of.” They choose to “take music and bend it and twist it as much as possible.”
Motionless in White are taking their metalcore act on the road once again. In The Trinity of Terror Tour Part 2, the biggest names in hard metal rock tour together for some more frighteningly spectacular performances. Motionless in White will tour with Black Veil Brides, Ice Nine Kills, and with special guests Crown the Empire. Get your tickets for the tour here.
