Asking Alexandria. They have risen from nothing to greatness in little over a year. 2009 saw the boys from England release their debut album 'Stand Up and Scream' to an audience just begging for something slightly different, and the 5 english lads delivered. 'Stand up and Scream' has done better than anyone could have hoped for. 2009 was spent touring with many great bands across the United States..., including, Enter Shikari, A Static Lullaby, Alesana and many more. 2010 has the boys touring relentlessly world over and writing the next chapter in their lives. With a hectic year ahead of them Asking Alexandria look set to take the world by storm. If you didn't hear of them in 2009 or 2010 2011 is the year everyone will be talking about Asking Alexandria.
Motionless in White
One of the strongest parts of Motionless In White's success story is their dedication to their fans. The band doesn't take their following's dedication lightly. The band named their full-length after their devoted fan base, which they affectionately call "Creatures", to remind their supporters that despite their differences, they are bonded by music. "I only ever wanted to be in a band because music changed my life so much, and all I wanted to be able to do the same for someone else in my own way," Chris adds. "To see all these people that are interested in this band and see them singing the words to our songs, like I used to dream would happen while I would be in a pit, screaming along to my favorite bands, is seriously mind-blowing." The band even allowed their "Creatures" to contribute to the album, creating the title track entirely of fan lyrics. "I really couldn't think of a better way to say thank you than to have our fans literally be part of this album, and to name our record after the people that are keeping us alive."
Gaining early support from all corners of the media has also been a key element in aiding Motionless In White's ascension through the ranks of the new wave of dark rock bands. The band was named as one of Alternative Press' Bands You Need To Know, is one of Revolver Magazine's Bands To Watch in the November/December 2010 issue, and has upcoming features in U.S. and international music press outlets including AOL Noisecreep, Ultimate-Guitar, AMP, Substream, Rock Sound and Kerrang!, plus horror publications Rue Morgue, Fangoria, Bloody-Disgusting and FEARnet.
The band has already toured the U.S. with the likes of Asking Alexandria, Bleeding Through, In This Moment and Drop Dead, Gorgeous, and looks forward to taking their show on the road this fall, including tours with Black Veil Brides and A Skylit Drive. "Expect to see a very honest and passionate performance every day," notes Chris. "We put a lot of time in trying to make our live show express the intensity and energy that we posses across to the crowd. I've bled, and I've screamed till my last breath, and our future shows will be no exception."
With an incredible work ethic and a dedication to practicing their craft, Motionless In White has completed their line up with the addition of new bassist Ricky Horror, and emerged as a group of stunning musicians, with a firm hold on what they want to achieve. "This band is 100% bullshit free and we want to inspire kids to stand up for themselves and not be afraid to look the way they do or say the things that they want. If I can do for one person what my favorite bands and heroes have done for me then mission accomplished."
Armed with their jaw-dropping debut album, support from the media and an impressive live show ready to take to the masses, Motionless In White is poised at the center of a perfect storm, and ready to take fans by the throat this fall. Miss them at your peril!
