MOTIONLESS IN WHITE are set to drop their latest studio album, “Scoring The End Of The World“, on June 10 via Roadrunner Records. The record’s third single, “Slaughterhouse“, featuring KNOCKED LOOSE‘s Bryan Garris, can be heard below.
Building on the anticipation for “Scoring The End Of The World“, “Slaughterhouse” follows the previously released singles “Masterpiece” and “Cyberhex“, the official videos for which quickly trended Top 10 on YouTube and have since amassed over six million views. Furthermore, “Masterpiece” continues to grow at the Active Rock radio format, jumping into the Top 30 this week and continuing to grow in audience.
MOTIONLESS IN WHITE frontman Chris “Motionless” Cerulli stated about “Masterpiece“: “‘Masterpiece‘ is a song which I feel embodies the raw and brutally honest nature of what makes MOTIONLESS IN WHITE. It took me many years to fully recognize that these are the types of songs that truly are the lifeblood of the relationship between the band and our fans. There is something really powerful and magical in being able to write a song that not only expresses your own deepest emotions and feelings, but to write something that may express the feelings of those who find it hard to articulate their own at times. It is on another level of special. In my own experience as a listener, these types of songs have always offered comfort amidst the pain, and ‘Masterpiece‘ is my way of returning that energy back to the universe for others to potentially find and carry with them. We’re all going through something dark in our heads on a daily basis, so why not go through it together?”
“Masterpiece” hinges on ominous clean guitars as Chris delivers a heart-wrenching refrain asking, “So how do I apologize and put the tears back in your eyes?” In the visual, the band delivers a performance in an abandoned home, sifting through discarded memories of a past life before a final blaze burns it all down.
In March, the Scranton, Pennsylvania quintet shared the first single “Cyberhex“, along with an official music video directed by the band’s guitarist Ricky Olson and Logan Beaver.
