New York Fans Go ‘Beyond the Barricade’ With Motionless in White, For Today + More
Motionless in White brought the “Beyond the Barricade” tour to New York City as one of the last stops on the trek. The sold-out show took place at Irving Plaza and stellar support included For Today, New Years Day and Ice Nine Kills.
The headliners Motionless in White kicked off their set with “Death March” off of their latest disc, Reincarnate. They performed other new songs like “Puppets 3 (The Grand Finale),” “Everybody Sells Cocaine” and “Unstoppable,” plus singer Ashley Costello of New Years Day came out to perform “Contemptress.”
It was obvious that all of the bands on the tour not only had respect for each other as musicians but also as friends. Every band on the tour came out and supported each other throughout the night whether they teamed up on songs or played pranks on each other onstage.
Another guest vocalist included Spencer Charnas of Ice Nine Kills, who performed “Abigail” with Motionless in White. A memorable moment of the night happened when Motionless in White cranked out their rendition of Rammstein’s “Du Hast.”
The band’s diehard fans sweated it out, bounced and sang especially to favorites like “Creatures,” “America,” “Immaculate Conception” and the set-ender “Devil’s Night.”
For Today took the stage beforehand for a vigorous set. They played numerous tracks from their latest disc, Fight the Silence, and throughout the show, fans were anything but silent.
New Years Day hit the stage earlier in the night for a lively performance. The band was one of the most dynamic of the night. The two new members of the band added to their charm as each one of them was enthusiastic and charismatic.
During New Years Day's set, the guys in For Today crashed things as they jokingly graced the stage spraying the band with silly string. Chris Motionless also took the stage with New Years Day to perform their collaborative song “Angel Eyes.”
Ice Nine Kills kicked off the show at the beginning of the night with an energetic set as they performed tracks from their latest effort, The Predator Becomes the Prey.
