Motionless In White have revealed that their brand new album is just around the corner.
Set for a release date of June 10th 2022, ‘Scoring The End Of The World’ and will be dropping on June 10 via Roadrunner Records.
‘Cyberhex’, the bands latest track is out now.a
Vocalist Chris Motionless had this to say about what it represents to them:
“‘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 allstood 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.”
The artwork looks like this:
1. Meltdown 2. Sign Of Life 3. Werewolf 4. Porcelain 5. Slaughterhouse (Feat: Bryan Garris) 6. Masterpiece 7. Cause Of Death 8. We Become The Night 9. Burned At Both Ends 2 10.

Motionless In White have shared a brand new blood soaked video for their track ‘Thoughts & Prayers‘.
The video itself was directed by the band’s guitarist, Ricky Olson. He says the following:
“I’m super excited to have been given the opportunity to combine both of my passions into one project. Chris [Motionless, vocalist] and the guys trusted me with a vision, and I think we were able to put together something we are all very proud of. I hope all the fans enjoy—they were at the forefront of the project and without them this video wouldn’t have been possible. This one’s for you guys! Again, extreme gratitude to the band and to everyone at Roadrunner for giving me the opportunity to do something I’ve wanted to do for years. Hopefully, this is the first of many!”
You can check out ‘Thoughts & Prayers’ and its video below.
‘Disguise’, the bands fifth record, is out right now via Roadrunner Records.
Orders for the record can be made via the band’s Webstore.
With the announcement in the last few days that their upcoming fourth record was announced, Beartooth have confirmed a handful of UK shows for February 2022.
‘The Below Tour’ will see the band hit the road with support from Motionless In White and Stray From The Path, with three massive headline UK shows scheduled for Birmingham, Manchester, and London in the middle of a stint in mainland Europe.
Speaking about the tour, frontman Caleb Shomo commented.
“I’ve never been more excited for a tour in my life. This is my favourite album I’ve ever made and getting to headline these rooms and put on the full show with no limits is a dream come true. The line-up is stacked. It’s gonna be one of the craziest shows of my life every single night.”

Happy spooky season everyone and welcome back to the New Music Roundup! We’re here for a roundup of five of the best recently released tracks. They’re not all within the same genre and they’re all different in some way or another but that means that there’s a little something for everyone here but come on, let’s get down to the music!
First up this week is the British Singer / Songwriter Charlie Simpson whom you might know from the bands Busted and/or Fightstar. He’s released his first solo track since his 2016 record, ‘Little Hands’.
Starting this weeks roundup off is the fantastic track, ‘I See You’.
Please note at the time of writing in preparation for this weeks list, there is no indication yet if this track will feature on a yet to be announced EP or Record.
Now we move onto the New York alternative pop band Eighty Ninety which consists of brothers Abner (vocals, production) and Harper (guitar, production) James — share their new singe, “Better as Friends”. Following the brothers’ previous release “Happier,” “Better as Friends” is the second single from Eighty Ninety’s forthcoming sophomore EP. The EP was created in collaboration with Grammy-nominated producer Gian Stone (Maroon 5, Justin Bieber, Ariana Grande, Halsey, Dua Lipa).
Both cinematic and intimate, “Better as Friends” is a dreamy mix of contemporary pop and hazy chillwave production propelled by a driving pulse that culminates in a yearning, widescreen chorus complete with soaring melodies, lush arrangements and the band’s distinctive guitar work. As with all of Eighty Ninety’s tracks, “Better as Friends” uses deeply personal lyrics to connect with universal themes and feelings, exploring the powerful pull to stay connected with someone you once loved despite how painful it can be. “It’s about the desire to live in the past rather than face the end, and how loving someone can mean wanting the best for them even if that no longer includes you,” Abner and Harper write.
The NYC based duo’s songs fuse intimate storytelling, sticky melodies, and minimalist pop productions built on acoustic instruments and electronic sounds in a style they call “808s and telecasters” — a shorthand for both their music and their anything-goes mentality in the studio. “We let the emotional arc of the song, rather than any set of genre conventions, lead us to instruments and sounds,” the brothers say of their process.
Now we have the exciting, effervescent Maggie Cassidy, a British band with a fresh, pop-fuelled edge, blending filthy guitars with irresistible choruses to deliver a rare concoction of boyband punk.
The playful tongue-in-cheek track ‘D.E.A.D!’ is about feeling dead inside from staring at screens all day like a zombie, without human interaction. “Given the last six months EVERYONE is more familiar with that feeling than ever,” says guitarist Jan-Erik Barnegren.
“There’s genuine feeling at the heart of the song, but there’s also an element of us poking fun at those emo tropes that really glamourise the macabre (which also comes across in the music video),” adds vocalist Jamie Coupe. “As an emo band we love that about the genre, but sometimes you have to poke your head up from out under it all and not take yourselves too seriously.”
In additional exciting news, the band have also announced that they will be back in the studio with Seb Barlow (Neck Deep) in November to record the follow-up to their recently released debut EP, ‘Life Is Beautiful’.
Check out their track ‘D.E.A.D’, which arrives just in time for halloween tomorow!
Diving further into the spooky, we have Scranton’s very own Motionless In White where ‘Creatures X: To The Grave’, a tip to their ongoing tenth anniversary celebrations of their debut album, ‘Creatures’.
Chris Motionless (Vocals) says:
“After ten years of the most insane highs and lows that a band can experience, we are so proud to hit such a milestone as a record having its 10th anniversary. We wanted to do something special to celebrate, so we decided to throw it back with a very ‘Creatures’ inspired track that includes some of the very same keyboard sounds and guitar riff styles that are found on that record, as well as many callback lyrics and themes to the original ‘Creatures’ song. It’s been a very interesting year for everyone, but we’re happy to have found cool ways to still give fans something to hold on to throughout. Hope everyone enjoys this one. Happy Halloween.”
And lastly, The Pretty Reckless have been pretty quiet as of late, until now.
Their latest track, ‘Broomsticks’ arrived in the middle of the band teasing what is going to be their new record, which will be made with Century Media Records.
“When we first heard the new album, ‘Death By Rock And Roll’, we were very excited,” says the band’s manager, David Sonenberg. “We couldn’t wait to play it to record labels. We took a ton of meetings and received offers from a broad range of labels. But it quickly became apparent that Century Media was the right partner for us. They shared our passion and enthusiasm for what we believe will be a breakthrough album for The Pretty Reckless. So, here’s to our new partnership with Century Media! And long live Rock and Roll!!!”
And that’s it for another week of a countdown of the best new tracks out in the world in the last week. Be sure to check back next-time for another round of great music videos.

Motionless In White have previously teased some new music were coming. There was however been no indication on what it would be.
Now, in the midst of this free time they’ve been having, the US Metaller’s have released ‘Another Life / Eternally Yours: Motion Picture Collection’ which is a four track EP which consists of two new collaborations – Crystal Joilena and Kerli – as well as reimagined versions of two fan-favourite singles: Another Life and Eternally Yours.
The band say:
“With all of the downtime of not touring, we wanted to take the opportunity to try something we’ve never done before. We give you, Eternally Yours: Motion Picture Collection (Feat Crystal Joilena) and Another Life: Motion Picture Collection (Feat Kerli).
“Thank you to Crystal and Kerli for your amazing vocals that helped transform these versions into something truly special. Thank you to Justin Deblieck for your ever-brilliant talents that shine so bright throughout these tracks, and thank you to Steve Sopchack for your keen ear and dedication to mixing this project. We hope you all enjoy and are still staying safe out there.”
“There’s going to be a usual mix of things on the record like we normally do, from stuff like Another Life and Voices all the way to stuff like Thoughts & Prayers and Undead Ahead 2, and stuff that we’ve done everywhere in between,” he said. “But, yeah, so far for me, it’s been a little heavier.
“I don’t know if that’s out of frustration of what’s going on; I don’t know if it’s just that that’s where my creative interest is lying right now, where I’m wanting to write some heavier stuff. But we have a ton of stuff in the bank that I keep going back to and picking and choosing from, and a lot of that stuff is also the heavy stuff that I’m gravitating toward. So I don’t know… You might hear maybe a few more heavy tracks on the album this time than anything else, but don’t hold me to that.”
