Motionless In White have announced a UK tour for early next year.

The band are currently on the road across Europe and will play at the UK’s Download festival later today (June 9) – but that hasn’t stopped them from lining up further dates in support of their recently released fourth studio album titled Graveyard Shift, which came out last month via Roadrunner Records.

Frontman Chris Motionless says: “After much demand by the UK fans, we are thrilled to announce that we will finally be coming back for another headline run in January 2018.

“By the time this headliner starts, with the exception of Download 2017, it will have been two years since the last time we’ve stepped foot to actually play in the UK and I think all of our fans will agree with me in saying that that is too fucking long.”

He adds: “It’s always a pleasure to see the fans reaching out, asking when we will be back – and after pushing to make it as soon as possible, January 2018 will finally be that time.

“See you soon – and thank you for always wanting to have Motionless In White come play for you!”

Tickets will go on general sale from 10am on Friday, June 16, from all usual ticket agents and via LiveNation.
