Since 2005, this Pennsylvania based metalcore act have cultivated a hardcore following via their Gothic-inspired aggression and imagery, and that buzz has reached fever pitch with the release of their third full-length album Reincarnate along with lead singer Chris Motionless featuring in New Year Day’s new single Angel Eyes.

According to critics MiW are back with their “strongest collection of songs yet”, and it seems as if there’s no stopping this act when it comes to what they can accomplish.

Alessandro Rocco, lead guitarist of Deathbus and an avid fan of MiW said: “Motionless in white are unique in the sense that they combine modern metal with the 90s industrial style that was created by bands like Ministry, Marilyn manson and Rammstein.

“The second time I saw them I got a chance to meet the band and watch their soundcheck and they are all really cool guys.”


Also on the bill are Chelsea Grin, an American deathcore band from Salt Lake City, Utah. They have a large following in Northern Ireland and they are expected to pull quite a large crowd of young metal fans.
