Scranton’s Motionless In White celebrates ‘Creatures’ 10th anniversary with concert live stream and album reissue

Upon its release, “Creatures” debuted at No. 6 on the Billboard Heatseekers Chart and peaked in the Hard Rock Albums’ Top 20. It also received a warm reception from the critics. AllMusic praised the band’s use of synthesizers “to create a dark and uneasy atmosphere. This blend of the frightening and the familiar gives ‘Creatures’ not only the ability to draw fans in with something they’ll immediately click with but which will keep them coming back for another helping.” The U.K.’s Rock Sound declared, “It’s good to see an of-the-moment band taking things seriously,” adding that MIW “push past the boundaries of screamo into more metallic territories, their intermittently screamed and harmonized vocals, epic choruses, and brutal breakdowns keep them firmly in touch with their roots.”

Since then, MIW has released four more full-lengths, including their bestselling 2014 LP “Reincarnate,”[15] which debuted at No. 9 on the Billboard Top 200 and No. 1 on the Rock Albums chart. The band – which currently consists of frontman Chris “Motionless” Cerulli, Ryan Sitkowski (guitar), Ricky “Horror” Olson (rhythm guitar), Vinny Mauro (drums), and bassist Justin Morrow – released their fifth studio album, “Disguise,”[16] on Roadrunner Records in 2019 and followed with a rigorous headlining tour. Most recently, they shared a well-received cover of The Killers’ “Somebody Told Me”[17] to streaming platforms while, in the spring, they confirmed that they are working on new material.

“After 10 years of our monumental record ‘Creatures,’ we are pleased to celebrate this October with a limited reissue vinyl featuring a completely revamped artwork, our first-ever throwback cassette tape pressing of an album, a digital deluxe edition, and most excitingly… our first-ever performance of a record in entirety, in which we will be performing the ‘Creatures’ album as a stream on the 28th of the month,” Chris Motionless said.

“After 10 years, we are so grateful that our fans hold this record as close to their hearts as we do and cannot thank them enough for helping us reach our first 10-year anniversary of an album. Here’s to 10 more!”
