Motionless in White Show Fiery Hope for the Future With New Song ‘Timebomb’
Motionless in White have returned, releasing their first new original music since 2020 with Friday's (Aug. 20) arrival of "Timebomb," a dark but uplifting — and heavy — single from the Chris Motionless-led metalcore outfit whose uniqueness extends beyond genre.
The song, which points to a new album from the band next year, pairs with a Logan Beaver-directed music video that pictures a futuristic society living under a doomsday threat, the visuals playing off the tune's focused energy and vivid lyrics that ultimately impart a hopeful outlook.

Chris Motionless said on Friday, "We are really excited to release a new piece of music to bridge the gap between all of the COVID downtime and our next record coming in 2022. 'Timebomb' felt like a great stand-alone track to touch on the heavier side of the band and to give fans something to headbang to during our return to touring this September."
Indeed, Motionless in White are set to tour the U.S. with support from Silent Planet and Dying Wish, their first major trek since the pandemic began. See the dates below and get tickets here.
"It feels so good to be getting back to work," Motionless added, "and 'Timebomb' feels like a perfect way to celebrate 'the next normal.'"
Motionless in White fans who prefer the act's heavier output would likely agree, as the new tune is a far cry from this spring's synthwave version of the band's hallmark jam "Voices," originally from 2017's Graveyard Shift. The group last released a studio album, Disguise, in 2019.
