Motionless In White (formed in 2005) is an American metal band originating from Scranton, Pennsylvania, U.S., currently signed to Fearless Records.
Founded in 2005 by Chris Cerulli on guitar and lead vocals, Frank Polumbo on guitar, Angelo Parente on drums and Kyle White on bass, the band had conceived of other names but settled on Motionless in White, derived from the Eighteen Visions song “Motionless and White”.
The genre of the band is not easily describable and probably falls into a fusion category, blending the raw fuzz and energy of metalcore, with the drama of gothic-metal along with a pop-punk element of some of Chris Cerulli’s vocals. Motionless in White has created a uniquely dark and affected sound and a unique fan-following to match, but influences can be seen in bands as distinct as Slayer, The Cure, Slipknot and Depeche Mode.
In 2007 with the addition of keyboard player Joshua Balz, the band released their debut EP “The Whorror” on the local label Masquerade. Shortly after band members Polumbo and Constanza departed from the group making way for Ryan Sitkowski and Ricky Horror, who are present band members, which allowed the band continue to release new material and get signed to their current label Fearless Records after a brief stint at Tragic Records.
Motionless in White’s debut album entitled “Creatures” was released in 2010 and introduced a wave of heavy-hitting horror, a bunch of breakdowns, where they grappled with their gothic, uneasy sound. The album charted at No. 6 on the Billboard Heatseekers chart and No. 175 on the Billboard Top 200 chart. In between this release and their follow-up sophomore album “Infamous” released in November 2012, the band contributed to the compilation cover album “Kerrang! Metallica The Black Album”, covering the song “My Friend of Misery”.
In January 2013 Motionless in White announced a short tour for March along side bands Like Moths to Flames, The Defiled and For the Fallen Trees, after which they returned to the studio to record their third full-length album “Reincarnate” released on 15 September 2014.
