Motionless In White drummer quits band

Friday, February 21, 2014 5:55 AM PT


After a roughly year of playing drums for Motionless In White, drummer Brandon Richter has left the band. Richter had the following to say:

"I'm announcing sadly I won't be apart of MIW anymore. I won't go into great detail to as why I chose to leave the band. What I would like to say tho is I'm extremely grateful to have been able to play music for all of you and meet and interact with so many amazing people. To the fans I have made I hope u continue to support me through my newly made changes and see what I do next! I am and will ALWAYS be here for all of you!! I am sorry for those who were wanting to see me perform in Australia and Warped but you have not seen the end of me. Bigger things are ahead and life chose to take me down a different path. Thank you again for all of you awesome fans and your support."

Motionless In White has yet to comment on Richter's departure.

Tired of these whiny diatribes about quiting a band. Just leave and be replaced and no one will notice or care.

I'd do anything to be a major label drummer especially in MIW my name is Regi - Chris Motionless or Ricky Horror I met you guys in Boise if you happen to read this I'd be happy to try out, I can do occasional blast beats during verses and breakdowns. If you are interested contact me at myspace.com/tragicxromanti c

Maybe the drummer realized none of the cities on their tour dates had half the amount of eyeliner they need for a single night.

Probably left because of Chris always complaining. Seriously the guy's tumblr is nothing but him bitching about fans and his "fame" plus other members have sent dick pics to young girls that leaked them out. I wouldn't want to be part of that either.

Probably quit to fck himself in front of his whole family. Band is an abomination and has nothing to do with metal. Aren't they Christian? Wait, who cares. Middle finger.

True about the pics, the one dude that looks like Sweeney Todd had some leak after sending them to a girl. Others have too I just don't remember which ones. Sick perverts is what they all are.

Okay, some of these comments are pissing me off. I really don't think you have any right to say some of the things that have been said since you don't know them personally. I just hope that both Brandon and Motionless In White are happy and successful with what they do in their lives from now on.

Well I think those of you who slam on miw are total dicks theyve been my favorite band since I heard. Yeah he'll be missed but drummers are easy to find anyways. Idc what kinda bullshit people say about them. They'll always be my favorite band.

^^^^ Chris Motionless is probably on here sobbing, defending himself. Keep your eyes peeled for another bitchy tumblr post.

Just fck off. It was brandons choice to leave MIW. As for the other band members- they have found a replacement drummer and from what ive seen he is doing a good job, if you have nothing nice to say about MIW then please just keep your fcking mouth shut.
