"It’s always the songs that are very deep, very emotional, very releasing."
If you didn't know, Motionless In White have recently achieved their highest ever US chart position.
'Another Life', taken from the band's latest album 'Disguise' hit No.12 on the Hot Hard Rock Songs Chart, which is incredible for a band who continue to push harder and harder and achieve more and more as the years pass by.
On our recent Video Call with frontman Chris Motionless, we asked him why he felt this song in particular has resonated with so many:
"I think very similarly to our song ‘Voices’, this song really taps into the raw emotional side of the band. Historically, I think that’s the part of the band that really, really impacts fans and those are the songs that really become fan favourites. It’s always the songs that are very deep, very emotional, very releasing. As a listener of music, those were the songs that really hit me the hardest, whether they were really, really pissed off or really sad. Whatever it was, as long as they were completely embodying that particular emotion, that was what I clung to and I think that’s why those songs, and ‘Another Life’ in particular, has really hit with fans."
Oh, and the song also recently got a pulsing remix from Beartooth's Caleb Shomo. This is how that came about:
"He was actually approached by our label. I didn’t even hear that the label was interested in doing something like that. I didn’t know that people were really into remixes anymore, at least more specifically from heavier bands like ours or Beartooth. But the label contacted him because he’s an insane artist and musician and can do that stuff really well. So we ended up talking about it on the tour that we were on with them this past January and he just worked on it and sent it and I was just like ‘OK, this is amazing. Did not see this coming - you totally nailed it’. And we put it out and fans have been really cool about it. It’s been a really nice experience and something cool in a pretty dark year."
