    I fuckin' love these dudes. Saw them in February with Escape the Fate, Get Scared, and Drive A. They're one of the few bands out there who set themselves apart from the typical metalcore/open-note chugga chugga chords that everyone seems to be trying to jump on the bandwagon for. They kind of remind me of Bullets/early revenge era MCR as far as attitude and look goes. They're one of the few bands that aren't full of fucking shit.

    Btw, TJ was kicked out about a month ago when he ditched them to fill in for bass for ETF. Ricky is now playing guitar instead of bass, according to his Facebook/Twitter page.

    ^I heard rumors about a few of the members leaving; I was hoping they weren't true. I won't pretend to know much about the guys personally, but their music has been the only thing playing on my ipod for the last month or so. Just bought Creatures yesterday [:

    Oh Emily you perfect human being.

    I love this band so much. I love the music, the lyrics, the imagery. They are without a doubt my favourite band, alongside Architects. And I think they are all so inspirational, especially Ricky. I cannot wait to see them live.

    ^ :$: I was hoping you'd approve. I have to agree with everything you said, too. They paint such a perfect picture of what they're feeling; it's impossible to misunderstand what they're saying as long as you're truly paying attention. Their message is clear and I admire them for that.

    I don't mean to offend any hardcore MCR fans here but, when I look at MIW it reminds me a lot of what MCR started out as. Just the music, great imagery, and a message. It's kind of interesting because we thought MCR was so dangerous when they came out and MIW is the same way. Maybe I'm jaded by being a fan of MCR for so long, but I feel like along the way MCR has lost sight of what their message was and what they were really trying to do with their music. I still think MCR is a good band but I don't think they speak for this generation anymore. It seems like people have gotten progressively angrier even since 2001 and 9/11 and MIW reflects that big fuckin time. MCR just doesn't seem dangerous to me anymore...and MIW just makes you want to smash shit haha.

    ^this. and whilst MIW have some drama what with TJ and everything, MIW fans are so much more united than MCR fans, even though MCR fans claim to be this big family.


    Ricky is just adorable :wub:

    Do you read his tumblr blog? Honestly, that dude is the first fucking musician who has said shit that I can relate to 100%...that dude wants to do this more than anything in the world and he's getting to do it...he deserves it more than most of these dudes in bands. Same goes for Chris. I hope Ricky starts playing guitar...the dude will tear shit up haha.

    Sadly, yeah. I still consider MCR my favorite band, but they've changed. I don't get that amazing feeling when I hear about/listen to them anymore. There's just too much shit said about them, and way too much pointless fighting over who they are and what they're still doing in the entertainment business. I wanted to always love the guys in the band as much as the band itself, but now I've pretty much just detached myself from the guys personally. But MIW... I just don't feel conflicted when I listen to them, which is definitely refreshing. They're easily one of my favorite bands, and I don't see that changing anytime soon.

    Oh Rosie, that picture xD Fucking fantastic.

    It looks so fucking sick, you guys. I'm really psyched about this.

    And here it is!! Pretty great if you ask me. I thought they did a damn good job of expressing the proper emotions.

    Was anyone confused by the random appearance of one of the artists from NY Ink? xD

    It'd be nice for this thread to be more active, don't you guys think. So let's.. Oh, I don't know, discuss the band, perhaps? :p

    Anyone ever see them live/meet them in person?

    Dear all Motionless In White fans and friends. We have an unfortunate announcement to make. As of today our friend, brother and the man you know as Angelo Parente, drummer of MIW, has decided to part ways with the band. He released this statement :

    "To my friends, family, and all the amazing Motionless In White fans, this is very hard to say, and I’m sure it will hit me harder soon, but I will no longer be in the band. This decision did not just all of sudden happen. After doing this since I was 17, the nonstop touring, and everything else that comes with the life of a musician, has finally caught up with me. It has affected me mentally and physically and it’s to a point where the best thing for the rest of the band and myself would be for me to call it quits. Please know that the band and I are on good terms, best of friends and I love them all very much. No matter what, I would not give up what I have been through and experienced with the band. It has been the best years of my life. I got to travel the world with my best friends almost every day. I have met so many great people along the way and made many friends I will never forget. I will miss you all. Not seeing the guys in the band will be tough to get use to, but I wish them the best of luck. Motionless In White has so much in store for you all, so please continue to support them to the fullest. I’m not sure what’s in store for my future, but right now I need to be home and breathe. Get myself together and figure it out. Please make sure to stay in touch. You know where to find me online and its a lot of fun sharing what I do with everyone throughout my life. Whether it’s my art, food, dog, clothing designs, etc., you guys give your opinion and I’m grateful to have that. I am truly sorry to all that I have let down. Thanks for the constant support you have given me over the years, I will never forget it.


    We hope that he will find the relief he is searching for and that this is nothing but a positive move on his part. We are extremely sad to see him go, but we fully support and understand his decision to do what's best for him. We are and will remain on good terms with him and really hope that all of our amazing fans will support him in whatever he chooses to do from this point on. He has been a part of our band and our family since its conception and this will take some adjusting for everyone, but as always, we appreciate all the ongoing support.

    Thank you for reading and letting Angelo know he will be missed. We love you Ange, thank you for joining us during what will be looked back on as some of the best years of our lives.
