Motionless In White have announced their anxiously awaited new full-length album, "Scoring The End Of The World", set for release on June 10, 2022. It is available to pre-save on all streaming platforms today with exclusive merch bundles available for pre-order in the band's official store.
To herald its arrival, the Scranton, PA quintet have also shared the first single "Cyberhex," which is available on all streaming platforms and joined by an official music video directed by the band's guitarist Ricky Olson and Logan Beaver — now live on the band's official YouTube channel.
Vocalist Chris Motionless elaborated on the ambitious new project stating:
"'Cyberhex' is my love letter to you, our fans, for everything you have done for me over the course of some of the most mentally taxing few years I've had to go through. At times where I felt like my world was ending, as well as the world around us, it was always in my mind that I was able to turn to the special relationship we have created together for help, and I cannot thank you enough for that. Outside of my own personal experiences, it has been equally as fulfilling to me to see that in the face of tireless forces that continue to try and perpetuate hatred and negativity towards so many of us coexisting on this planet, we have all stood together to resist and fight back knowing that love and compassion will always prevail. We ARE the resistance. We ARE Cyberhex. I love you. Thank you."
On "Cyberhex," an ominous synth melody snaps like the click of a trigger into a pummelling glitchy guitar riff as vocalist Chris Motionless warns, "There's no tomorrow." His apocalyptic verses give way to a robotic sample, "Initiate Cyberhex," before the cataclysmically catchy chorus takes hold. Strings pierce the militaristic bridge, and screams cut through the chaos. In what may be their most cinematic visual yet, the story of the song comes to life on-screen under Olson's deft direction.
"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 23 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.
Last year, Motionless In White unleashed the standalone single "Timebomb." It has gathered 5.7 million Spotify streams and 1.6 million YouTube views on the music video.
