Chris Motionless Profile Information

  • ‪I was shown this video a while ago by someone far more educated than I. It’s great for highlighting some pretty commonplace occurrences of white privilege that often go unrecognized from within white culture. Maybe this information is new to you. Use this video as a stepping stone in educating yourself on things you may have never realized existed. Full video link in my bio.

  • Hey everyone! hope you are all doing okay with everything going on in the world right now. Thought maybe this post would bring you a smile or a laugh. I’ve been using some of this time off to go through TONS of storage, and I found some really great stuff in every category.  One of those categories being some photos and mementos from my years in highschool, and the years when MIW first started. Had to group them together to get the most, so heres a description of what you’re seeing.  1. Unreleased solo from our first MIW photoshoot. We didn’t have any photographer friends, so we had to go to the same place I had my senior pictures done the year before. Was super awkward, and the pics are even more awkward haha. My friend Steve used to call us “Motionless In White Belts.” HOLY MYSPACE.  2. Top - Some of you may know the name ‘New Car Smell”. For those of you who don’t, this was my first band. Started in 2002. This was our first logo. The fucking anarchy symbol HAHA. Kill me.  Bottom - Some of my senior pictures. The Gibson Les Paul was my grandfathers guitar.  3. A newspaper write up and ticket from MIW’s first big show ever: opening for Senses Fail in 2005. I had to call the promoter every day for a month and beg to be on this show and he finally cracked. I have yet to ask him if he remembers this at all every time I see him these days. Thanks, Stan!  4. My badge from working at Pacsun in the second half of the 2000’s. At one point, everyone in the band except for Angelo worked there and I have no idea how we were able to do that and play weekend shows at the same time. I also joined a grind band playing guitar for one of our Pacsun managers, Rev Mike.  5. Top left - My 18th birthday. Went to get an industrial piercing before going to see Thrice and Thursday that night, only to get the piercing punched out in the pit haha. (Peep that Atreyu shirt @thebrandonsaller!) Bottom Left - Day I got my second tattoo.  Bottom Right - 2004. One of the few photos of my days as “Chris from toys” at Walmart. I was fired after 2 years. Not hard to see why haha.

  • Starting the #diseasedanddisguisedtour tomorrow with a sold out show in Seattle! The Setlist will change a bit at almost every show. We’ll be playing a bunch of new songs, and some solid oldies throughout. We have an all new stage production debuting for this tour as well. For those asking, both headlining bands will play for an hour each, and will be rotating who closes the show at each date. Get your tickets now. This tour is going to be insane! Link in bio.
