On Tuesday, March 26, SLIPKNOT co-founder, conceptualist and percussionist Shawn M. Crahan (a.k.a. Clown) directed a video for an as-yet-undisclosed track from the Scranton, Pennsylvania-based metalcore sextet MOTIONLESS IN WHITE. He writes on his Facebook page: “I had a blast. We created something special. All the people involved were so great and a pleasure to work with. I live for those days.”
Crahan is also the art director for SLIPKNOT and directed their DVDs, “Disasterpieces”, “Voliminal: Inside The Nine”, “Of The (sic)”, and “(sic)nesses: Live at Download”. He has been the creative vision behind the band since their inception.
In addition to producing his own work, Crahan has also worked as a producer for several bands, including GIZMACHI and DIRTFEDD, as well as serving as an executive producer to bands such as MUDVAYNE. Crahan has also remixed several songs for artists, including MARILYN MANSON, COHEED AND CAMBRIA, MINDLESS SELF INDULGENCE and SUICIDE SILENCE.
MOTIONLESS IN WHITE‘s sophomore album, “Infamous”, was released on November 13, 2012 via Fearless Records.
“‘Infamous’ pays a lot more attention to real life, this time,” explains MOTIONLESS IN WHITE lead singer Chris Motionless. “It’s not about movie characters like a lot of [2010’s] ‘Creatures’ was.”
He continues, “I don’t want to make music to just exist, I want to make music that makes a fucking difference. So this record is straight up, non-fiction and reflects how I feel about things being sung through not only my eyes, but those of fans and people in general.
“As much as I love not taking music entirely seriously all the time, I do feel at this point, we have an obligation to remain a band that’s doing something positive and putting out the right kind of message.”
