The spooky men in MOTIONLESS IN WHITE, from Scranton, PA, just wrapped up their 2019 Trick ‘R Treat tour with support from We Came As Romans, After The Burial, and Twiztid this past week. They just released their latest record ‘Disguise’ back in June and they are not done melting faces around the country yet!
“Through making this record, I definitely recognised how deep some of the issues that I have go,” Chris shared. “When you keep things bottled up in your head, you get that tunnel vision and focus on it in a very different way. When you can either talk about them to somebody or write them down for yourself, it gives you a more even perception. I think that’s something that people don’t utilise enough - they keep everything inside until it all comes to this explosion moment.
My biggest revelation would be to encourage people that, if they’re feeling that way, they need to either sit down and either write it out, just in straight diary or journal form, or seek help, try and talk to somebody." -Chris Motionless to Brii Jamieson of Rock Sound TV, 2019. Retrieved from
Yesterday a new co-headliner was announced, BEARTOOTH from Columbus, OH. BEARTOOTH released their latest album ‘Disease’ in late September 2018.
“I realised I’m always going to deal with these feelings,” he explains. “They just do not go away, no matter what I do. It’s all about learning to manage them. Disease is me being done with ignoring and going to those places in my mind that I hate to go to, in the hope I can figure out more about myself. I felt very lost after the last record cycle. I’m not trying to hate on my own record, but it felt like that whole process was so fucking fast. I enjoy Aggressive, but I think there were some things that slipped through the cracks in the recording process.” -Caleb Shomo to Dannii Leivers of Metal Hammer, 2018. Retrieved from
This impressive tour kicks off in Seattle, Washington at the Showbox Sodo on January 4th and wraps up in Ft Lauderdale, Florida at the Revolution on January 30th.
