Motionless in White, ‘America’ – Video of the Day

Chris Motionless of Pennsylvanian metalcore band Motionless in White has accomplished a lot in his life, and today (Oct. 17) is the singer’s 26th birthday. To celebrate the musician’s day of birth, we’ve named ‘America,’ which was directed by Slipknot percussionist / backing vocalist Shawn ‘Clown’ Crahan and released on the band’s ‘Infamous’ album, our Video of the Day.

You can clearly see the stamps of both Motionless in White and Shawn Crahan in the ‘America’ video, combining gothic imagery with carnival creepshow aesthetics. ‘America’ is pure madness from start to finish as a ringmaster dressed all in white greets circus attendees while presenting a variety of acts from a capitalist and his briefcase of cash, a scantily-clad obese man eating fried chicken while sitting upon a throne, a priest who stares at a young child for just a wee bit too long and a reluctant woman snorting all different types of drugs.

Motionless in White perform ‘America’ throughout the bizarre clip, embracing the chaos while providing its soundtrack. “I had a blast,” Crahan writes about the clip. “We created something special. All the people involved were so great and a pleasure to work with. I live for those days.”

Happy Birthday to Chris Motionless! Motionless in White are set to embark on a lengthy U.S. tour with In This Moment before heading down to Australia for the 2014 Soundwave Festival.
