Motionless In White Unleash Hell in ‘Necessary Evil’ Video
Earlier this year, Motionless In White released their fourth and darkest studio album to date, Graveyard Shift. Their season of darkness only seems to be growing as the band just released their new music video for “Necessary Evil.”
The song really hones in on the chorus’s party theme, showing a pretty sick celebration going down. Singer Chris Motionless is at the head of the table, on a throne with two clown slaves on leashes. The video moves to a stage on fire, with the whole band performing to an excited crowd, all the while a host of dangerous things go on behind the scenes. The song is as catchy as ever, with the chorus bound to get lodged into your head for a good long while. At its apex of a breakdown, Motionless slams his hands into a cake, while the band goes berserk onstage.
If there’s one thing to dock the video on, its that the track’s guest star — Korn‘s Jonathan Davis — is not present to indulge in the festivities, but the excitement of the rest of the video is more than enough to make up for his absence. Regardless, Chris is a Korn fan through and through, and expressed his admiration of Davis in a recent interview with Full Metal Jackie.
“I just think it’s pretty amazing just because of that. You know, Korn being such a massive band for us and for me and to finally see all these years later — after everything that’s happened, to see him sing on one of our songs — especially [because] I know he doesn’t do it all that often… so it’s inspiring that it makes us feel like definitely we are doing something right and that we’re working really hard towards a goal that it seems like we are really accomplishing. It helps put one of those pegs in the ground along the way to just kind of make it feel like we’re doing something right and going forward carrying the same mentality and hope it will be a promising move and we’re just really excited to have him on.”
Motionless In White are currently embarking on a fall North American headlining tour where they’re joined by The Amity Affliction and Miss May I. Fans can expect a charged up live show, which may or may not include a tribute to Linkin Park‘s Chester Bennington, as the group have been playing recently.
