Behind-the-Scenes Footage From Motionless In White’s Controversial New Video

Check out the behind-the-scenes footage on the set of Motionless In White‘s controversial new video for their track “Abigail”. Head to AltPress.com to check it out! The song is featured on the Scranton, PA sextet’s new album Creatures.

“Our track “Abigail” is all about the Abigail Williams and the Salem Witch Trials, so director Kevin McVey worked with us to give the feel of the era a new age spin, mixing the past with the present,” notes singer Chris Motionless. “It was really interesting to see words and direction on the script come to life in this video – some of the performance is pretty intense!”

“We were actually filming at the same location as Justin Timberlake’s new movie “Now” – their crew were set up in the alley and we were inside, he continues. “They tried to get us to shut down, but ended up sending a PA upstairs with a walkie so we could shoot inbetween their shots.  Apparently they were doing a very expensive, very “emotional” part of the movie that needed silence, but they could hear our performance outside. It’s funny to think that our music video was potentially halting production and ruining a major motion picture haha.”

Motionless In White explodes into 2011 on The Dead Masquerade Tour with Escape The Fate and Alesana – scroll down for dates. In the meantime, look out for the premiere of the “Abigail” video next week!
