Motionless In White has premiered the official music video for “AMERICA” today on VEVO.
Directed by M. Shawn “clown” Crahan of Slipknot, and featuring a cameo from Ashley Costello of New Year’s Day, the video features lead singer Chris Motionless as the ringmaster in the band’s twisted freak show.
In regular rotation on Sirius XM Octane, the song “AMERICA” (Ft. guest vocals from Michael Vampire) is featured on the band’s most recent album Infamous, which is set to re-release as a Deluxe Edition on June 11th on iTunes, including previously unreleased and re-mixed tracks.
Alongside the “AMERICA” music video premiere, the band has launched a contest for fans to enter to win the ultimate prize bundle including a pair of tickets to Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival, a Motionless In White prize pack, and a subscription to Revolver Magazine. The page also features a bonus “Shred To Win” contest where fans send in their rendition of the guitar solo from “AMERICA”, where one winner will receive a custom Ibanez guitar. Check out the official contest page to enter.
The Scranton, PA rockers have just wrapped a slew of radio festivals including Rock On The Range and Rocklahoma, a U.S. tour with Asking Alexandria, are gearing up for a slot on the Download Festival in the UK, and a massive summer on the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival.
MOTIONLESS IN WHITE – Chris Motionless (vocals), Ricky Horror (guitar), Ryan Sitkowski (guitar), Balz (keys), Ghost (bass) Brandon Richter (drums) – From underground heroes to internationally acclaimed act, hotly-tipped rockers Motionless In White have slayed audiences worldwide. Unafraid to make music as intense as it is intricate, their ability to interweave powerful lyrics and strong musicianship with striking imagery that has captivated both fans and media around the globe.
Featured on the cover of Outburn Magazine’s April/May issue, Motionless In White has been nominated as Breakthrough Artist of 2013 for the Metal Hammer Golden God Awards 2013. The band’s cinematic thriller “Devil’s Night” has garnered nearly 2 million views and was noted as one of Revolver Magazine’s Top 10 Music Videos of 2012. Matching the musical elements with equally creative marketing and visual concepts, Motionless In White has constantly challenged the concept of “playing it safe”, and on Infamous, they deftly deploy their most dynamic and diverse tracks to date.
