Motionless In White keyboardist quits band

Tuesday, January 10, 2017 12:31 PM PT


After more than a decade with the band, Motionless In White keyboard player Josh Balz has left the group. Here is the official word:

"As of today, we regret to announce that after 10 years of time spent with the band, through the highest of highs and lowest of lows, Josh Balz will be departing from Motionless In White.

"After many discussions and time spent searching within himself over the past year, Josh has come upon many discoveries of who he now is as a person, and what is truly important to him regarding his future. We respect and whole heartedly understand his decision, and while we are sad to see him go, wish him nothing but great things in the future with his family and pursuing his new dreams and business endeavors. For more information from Josh directly, please visit his twitter @Joshbalz.

"Regarding our touring schedule, we will be performing on the rapidly approaching 'The End Is Here Tour' exactly as planned, now with a keyboardist to fill in. We will also be playing every show around the globe that we have announced thus far and continuing to tour strongly onward after what has previously been announced.

"Regarding our new upcoming record, 'Graveyard Shift', everything is also still exactly as planned, and will be releasing this year on Roadrunner Records.

"Thank you, Josh, for your years of dedication in helping MIW become something we only dreamt of being when the band started. It has truly been a pleasure to have shared the road with you and to have so many amazing stories and memories to look back on through it all. You will be missed."

His woman has Ink Master cash, he retires from his almost Himsa/18 Visions band to sell deer skulls to pink haired poetry writing kids of divorced middle class parents. This dude is really living the dream. All praise to the Balz.
