When Love Met Destruction
Motionless in White was founded in 2005 by members Chris Motionless, who played guitar and lead vocals, Angelo Parente on drums, Frank Polumbo on guitar, and Kyle White on bass during high school. With a sound, at the time, being influenced by alternative rock, emo and post-hardcore bands, they incepted many other titles into the group until finally settling on what would be Motionless in White and later chose to follow a more heavy metal sound, descriptively; a metalcore musical style highly influenced by gothic and industrial metal bands, and carried this sound on as their signature style after the release of their 2005 self-distributed demo.
Formation
Within the year after the release of their demo, new member Josh Balz was added as the band's keyboardist, Frank Polumbo took over on bass and new members, Michael Costanza and TJ Bell, were added to the band as the new guitarists, moving Chris Motionless solely to lead vocals. They recorded their first EP The Whorror and released it the same year through Masquerade Recordings.
Despite being signed to Fearless before the months leading up to the release of the EP form of When Love Met Destruction, it was distributed through Tragic Hero on February 17, 2009. The song "Ghost in the Mirror" was made as the band's first ever single and had a music video produced for it.
Motionless in White entered the studio during May 2010 to record their debut full-length, Creatures. The record's first single, "Abigail", was released in September and was very well received. A music video for the song was released a few months afterward, along with following music videos over the next 2 years for title track "Creatures", the first track of the record "Immaculate Misconception" and a live music video for "Puppets (The First Snow)" which was filmed during the bands summer on The All Stars Tour in 2011.
On October 9, their second single "If It's Dead, We'll Kill It" was released.
On the same day the album Infamous was released.
