   Shedding their skin of years past, when they were known as Absence of Fear and shared the stage with such established bands as Periphery, The Human Abstract and Stray from the Path. Reborn, re-amped and heading your way, WGOS are setting themselves apart from the herd with their seven-track assault on the senses, ‘The Changing’. The EP hurtles towards the future of metal without ever forgetting its roots, fusing traditional guitar solos, technical riffing, screaming vocals and soaring melodic choruses with modern breakdowns and electronic samples.

Motionless In White’s new single “If It’s Dead, We’ll Kill It”

Motionless In White’s new single “If It’s Dead, We’ll Kill It” (feat. Brandan Schieppati) is now available for digital download on iTunes.

The Pennsylvanian metal outfit deliver a brand new lyric video for the single, which the band premiered earlier today. Just in time for halloween, the video offers a combination of clips from horror movies, spliced with live footage from Motionless In White’s sold out London, UK show last month. “If It’s Dead, We’ll Kill It” is featured on their highly-anticipated new album Infamous, set to release November 13th.
Get more information about the album at:
MotionlessInWhite.net/Infamous

“If It’s Dead, We’ll Kill It” was written about my disgust for people in the world who have developed this sense of entitlement that they think gives them the right to dictate standards others need to live by. I’m more specifically talking about the beauty standard, ” Lead singer, Chris Motionless explains. “I asked my hero Brandan Schiepatti from Bleeding Through to scream along with me on this song. He and his lyrics have always been what I’ve looked to for guidance and influence when I felt lost, so I am hoping to do the same for others out there. This song means more to me than anyone can understand. I’m coming for you mother fuckers.” Read more about “If It’s Dead, We’ll Kill It”

Gaining a reputation for constantly challenging the concept of “playing it safe”, Motionless In White are unafraid to make music as intense as it is intricate. Having built upward from the success of their debut album Creatures, which has sold over 50,000 copies, the band’s ability to interweave powerful lyrics and strong musicianship with striking imagery has captivated both fans and media around the globe.

To follow-up their sold out UK headline tour, the band are gearing up for their first North American headliner this November / December, and will return overseas on a UK run with Asking Alexandria in early 2013.

Warped Tour & Bandhappy Offer Music Lessons With Bands

BANDHAPPY, the first LIVE online and in-person music education service, is creating a sponsorship with the Vans Warped Tour this summer. As a sponsor, BANDHAPPY will offer a unique service for fans and bands alike on each date of the tour. BANDHAPPY is providing an official “BANDHAPPY Lesson Tent” where fans/attendees will be able to take lessons from their favorite bands/musicians on the Vans Warped Tour. Since launch, BANDHAPPY has serviced thousands of students in over 100 countries learning daily on the site by either live video chat or in-person while artists are on tour.

At the Vans Warped Tour, BANDHAPPY lessons can include anything from instrument and vocal lessons, to lessons about songwriting, marketing, image, management, gear walk-throughs, or anything else relating to the music industry. Take a trip over to www.bandhappy.com/warpedtour and check out all of the new details, as well as to vote for which artists you would like lessons from (and on what instrument) in each city.

All BANDHAPPY lessons will take place in the official BANDHAPPY Lesson Tent and can be pre-purchased at the link above, or via cash or credit card on day-of-show. Initially, BANDHAPPY will be offering pre-sale lessons for fans via http://www.bandhappy.com/warpedtour from members of Bayside, Born of Osiris, The Streetlight Manifesto, After the Burial, Vanna, iwrestledabearonce, Impending Doom, Chelsea Grin, and many more!

BANDHAPPY representatives will be on-site outside the festival speaking with fans waiting in line and taking orders for lessons. During lessons, students will be provided with practice instruments by SJC Drums, Ernie Ball, Orange Amps, Evans Drumheads, Planet Waves, Pro-Mark Drum sticks, Mapex hardware and pedals. Also taking place in the BANDHAPPY Lesson Tent will be master class meet and greets, contests, recording of lesson footage, and more. Additionally, official Vans Warped Tour ‘Pit Reporter’ Amy Willard will be taking weekly lessons at the tent and will issue updates.

Not only a great tool for fans attending the festival, this is a great opportunity for bands to become teachers on the tour as well. Lessons can be taught in a band’s down time every day, and while this is definitely a way for them to make additional money, it’s so much more than that. Both BANDHAPPY and Vans Warped Tour will be heavily promoting BANDHAPPY and its teachers. There will be a vast amount of articles, interviews, blogs, posts, etc. about this service, and the bands who take part in it.

Bands can use BANDHAPPY to book and provide online lessons to their students with the built in video chat setup, or book private, in person lessons at home or on tour. BANDHAPPY makes this effortless and it takes the hassle out of lessons. Bands can set their own rates and schedules with the assistance of BANDHAPPY, and everything is self-contained including scheduling, payment, etc., so your info stays private and your schedule stays organized. It has never been easier to establish a dedicated network of students worldwide.
