Motionless in White to bring the ‘Graveyard Shift’ to the U.S.

Just when you thought Motionless in White may take some time off after a hectic and busy beginning of 2017, they are not. On Monday (July 24), the Pennsylvania-founded band announced plans to hit the road this fall for their “The Graveyard Shift” tour. The trek, which will find the band performing at venues across the United States, will kick off on Sept. 28 at the Brooklyn Bowl in Las Vegas and wrap up at the Electric Factory in their hometown on Philadelphia on Halloween.

The Amity Affliction and Miss May I will open for Motionless in White during the over-a-month-long tour. Tickets for the tour will go on sale beginning this Friday, July 28, at 10 a.m. local time. The “Graveyard Shift” tour will be in support of the band’s recently released record by the Graveyard Shift.

The album was released back in May through Roadrunner Records and reached the number 27 spot on the Billboard 200 chart as well as the number five spot on the Top Rock Albums chart and the top spot on the Top Hard Rock Albums chart.  Graveyard Shift is the follow-up to the band’s 2014 release, Reincarnate.

Currently, Motionless in White are on tour with good friends, In this Moment, for their “Half God Half Devil” tour.

Motionless In White release rowdy video for ‘570’

image

It’s been a few weeks since Motionless in White released their new song, “570.” At the time, the new album speculation hit an all time high with frontman Chris Motionless confirming the pending release of a brand new album from the band. On Wednesday (July 13), the Pennsylvania-based group unleashed the official music video for the new track.

The four-and-a-half minute video mostly features footage of the band in the middle of what appears to be a mosh pit of fans. In between shots of the mosh pit clips, there are also clips of them performing sans their fans. Watch the video for “570” below.

“570” will reportedly be featured on Motionless in White’s upcoming new album. The record still does not have a name or projected release date.

When “570” was first released, Motionless was quoted as saying that the group’s fourth studio album would see a fall 2016 release date. A few weeks after the chat, the vocalist sat down with Alternative Press to clarify his statement and reveal that there still was no actual release date.

“I was very over-anxious in that…at that time we were planning for a fall release,” the signer admits. “It’s generally, like, where the schedule has fallen with every other album we have put out, but we knew that a lot of things were going to be happening with record label adjustments and all these sort of things that were going on with the band.”

Instead, he advises fans to keep an eye open around early 2017, because that’s when the new album might see the light of day. Watch Motionless’ complete interview here. The new video and new song couldn’t come at a better time. After jumping off the Vans Warped Tour, they will take some time off, just to head back on tour with Korn and Breaking Benjamin for the “Nocturnal Underground” tour. those dates can be found here.

Korn and Breaking Benjamin announce ‘The Nocturnal Underground’ tour

Korn and Breaking Benjamin already have a packed summer with each group going on their own, massive co-headlining tours during the summer months. But don’t expect the two rock giants to go quiet after both treks end, rather, get prepared because their fall is already booked. On Monday (June 6), it was announced that both Korn and Breaking Benjamin will join forces and hit the road this fall for the “Nocturnal Underground” tour.

The month-long trek will kick-off on Sept. 24 at the Scheels Arena in Fargo, ND and wrap up on Oct. 19 at the World Arena in Colorado Springs, CO. Motionless in White and Silver Snakes will act as supporting acts for the excursion. Tickets for each of the shows will go on sale beginning this Friday, June 10. The complete list of upcoming tour dates can be seen below.

THE NOCTURNAL UNDERGROUND TOUR DATES:

9/24 — Fargo, ND @ Scheels Arena
9/25 — Omaha, NB @ Baxter Arena
9/27 — Cedar Rapids, IA @ U.S. Cellular Center
9/28 — Peoria, IL @ Peoria Civic Center
10/2 — Louisville, KY @ Louder Than Life Festival (Korn only)
10/5 — Charlotte, NC @ PNC Music Pavilion
10/7 — Pelham, AL @ Oak Mountain Amphitheatre
10/8 — Southaven, MS @ Landers Center

The fall tour announcement comes a month or so before Korn is set to hit the road with Rob Zombie for their joint “Return of the Dreads” tour. Similarly, Breaking Benjamin’s co-headlining tour with Disturbed won’t begin until mid-July. Just like Breaking Benjamin and Korn, Motionless in White has a pretty busy summer as well. The Pennsylvania-based band will be joining the 2016 Vans Warped Tour for the complete trek.

The Word Alive Frontman Breaks Ribs Following Stage Dive

image

We all know that musicians, especially those in bands, get a little too into their shows. We’ve seen our fair share of musicians taking to social media to reveal that they managed to hurt themselves several time in some shape, way, or form during a tour. During their stop in Pomona, CA on Motionless In White and Devil Wears Prada’s co-headlining “Apollo X Tour,” The Word Alive’s Telle Smith definitely took the cake when it came to injuries during a show.

According to social media posts by both the band and Smith himself, he stage dove which resulted in a broken rib, another rib was fractured, and a bone in his spine was broken. But while most bands will think about cancelling the rest of their tour due to the major injuries, The Word Alive kept on going. Let’s put this in perspective: The injury happened on Nov. 14 and today (Nov. 19), the incident reached the web.

Talk about dedication.

Check out some tweets from Smith, and the band, below about what happened that night in Pomona as well as a fan shot video of that night. No word on whether the video shows what exactly led to Smith’s injuries.

Currently, there is only one day left on the Apollo X Tour, tomorrow (Nov. 20) night’s stop at Mill City Nights in Minneapolis, MN.

Watch Motionless in White Cover Linkin Park

image

Motionless in White treated fans in Boston to a nice throwback with a Linkin Park cover. During their stop at Boston’s House of Blues on Monday (Oct. 19), the Pennsylvania band treated fans to a cover of “One Step Closer” which ended up being a pretty good cover of Linkin Park’s Hybrid Theory hit. Check out the fan-shot video of the cover below.

As with any fan-shot video, we do give a warning that the audio is a little hard to hear (Chris Motionless sounds drowned out), but the actual footage is probably one of the better videos we’ve seen in a while. Also, there is a lot of use of flashing lights, so be warned.

Motionless in White are currently in the middle of their co-headlining “Apollo X Tour” with The Devil Wears Prada. The two bands alongside opening acts  The Word Alive, Upon A Burning Body, and the Color Morale, are scheduled to perform at the London Music Hall in London, Ontario, tonight (Oct. 21).

For the complete list of tour dates for the co-headlining trek, head on over here for all the upcoming stops.

Skate and Surf Festival Unveil First Batch of 2015 Performers

Skate and Surf Festival 2015 - Asbury Park, NJ - May 16th & 17th *RAIN OR SHINE

Skate and Surf Festival organizers had been dropping hints that they would be revealing some of the artists that will be going to New Jersey for the two-day festival in May of 2015. Now, the initial line-up of performers have been unveiled and so far, so good.

Bands such as a newly reunited From Autumn to Ashes, the Dropkick Murphys, Manchester Orchestra, The Wonder Years, The Story So Far, Modern Baseball, Motionless in White, and many more have already been revealed. The full official flyer for the two-day show can be seen below.

Skate & Surf

Once again, Skate and Surf will be returning home to Asbury Park, NJ though last year, they almost weren’t allowed to do so, but as we saw, they were.

Tickets for the festival will officially go on sale tonight at 8 p.m., so we will suggest if you’re digging the line-up so far, go ahead and get them while you can, especially when there are still some acts that have yet to be announced.

Remember, last year we saw the reunion of Midtown and a super special reunion including Anthony Green rejoining Saosin for their performance. Of course, that reunion has led to Green rejoining the band he once fronted for an actual tour.
