MOTIONLESS IN WHITE Shares 'Werewolf' Music Video

October 31, 2022

In celebration of Halloween, MOTIONLESS IN WHITE has shared the official Jensen Noen-directed music video for the single "Werewolf". The track is featured on the band's acclaimed new album "Scoring The End Of The World", which entered Billboard's Top Hard Rock Albums chart at No. 1 this past June, becoming MOTIONLESS IN WHITE's fifth Top 5 on the chart. The album also landed at #3 on Billboard's Top Current Albums chart, No. 2 on the Top Rock Albums tally, and No. 12 on the Billboard 200, marking the group's second largest sales week ever with 29,500 in total consumption. "Scoring The End Of The World" is also highlighted by the singles "Cyberhex", which trended Top 10 on YouTube, and the follow-up "Masterpiece", which lit up streaming platforms and reached No. 1 at Active Rock Radio earlier this month.

In a recent interview with Alternative Press, MOTIONLESS IN WHITE frontman Chris "Motionless" Cerulli stated about the making of "Scoring The End Of The World": "It was started in 2020, and it came together over the course of about a year and a half. My best friend, and one of the producers on the new record, [ICE NINE KILLS'] Justin deBlieck, lives two hours from Scranton, and I went up to Syracuse, New York and ended up living there for the first couple of months [of the pandemic] and throughout the summer. We worked on all kinds of music, whether it was new record stuff or alternate versions of our songs. Then, in July of 2021, I went and worked with the other producer on the record, my other best friend, Drew Fulk. A large portion of the melodies and lyrics were written in that period. We finished recording it in December last year."

Chris also revealed some of the wider world topics covered on "Scoring The End Of The World", including "world leaders failing to handle the pandemic. Capitalism, which makes us feel like we’re packaged and sold, and our suffering is profited off to make rich people richer," he said. "Corporations are buying housing, and middle-class families can't buy a home anymore. Pharmaceutical abuse. It's one thing after another. There's a small group of people who are benefiting from all of it, and essentially, it feels like we're living in a fucking slaughterhouse where we're the cattle. You also had George Floyd, which shined a massive spotlight on racism and abuse, and most recently you have things like Roe v. Wade."

He added: "When I say 'Scoring The End Of The World', I'm not suggesting an all-encompassing, the-world-is-over Armageddon. Songs such as 'Cyberhex' and the title track do suggest a resistance and revolt, a call to arms, but I'm metaphorically suggesting that the end of the world as we know it is happening, and we are going to step in and forge a new, better positive, forward-thinking world from the ashes. I feel like that started with George Floyd. That really seemed to be a moment where this social movement took place that felt really positive."

MOTIONLESS IN WHITE is set to begin the third leg of the widely popular triple co-headline "Trinity Of Terror" tour alongside ICE NINE KILLS and BLACK VEIL BRIDES. The new dates, which will see the three bands alternating closing sets each night, begin tonight at El Paso County Coliseum in El Paso, Texas, with stops scheduled in Houston, Baltimore, New York City, Toronto and more.

"Scoring The End Of The World" fully encompasses the expanse of the band's dynamic, deep, and dark vision, and marks the band's first full-length body of work in three years since 2019's "Disguise". The latter has quietly made a major impact on rock music and culture. The single "Another Life" stands out as their most-streamed song ever with over 31 million YouTube views on the music video. The record claimed a spot on Loudwire's "50 Best Metal Albums of 2019," plus it ignited the creative renaissance that would set the stage for the statement-making "Scoring The End Of The World".
