When Love Met Destruction is the second EP by American metalcore band Motionless in White released under Tragic Hero Records on February 17, 2009.

Background[edit]

When Love Met Destruction was recorded in the group's hometown after a year of releasing their debut EP The Whorror. Although When Love Met Destruction is an EP as its releasing through Tragic Hero, it was initially a full-length album that was released through Masquerade Recordings, where it was recorded in 2008 with limited production values. The band would sell the album on the 2008 Vans Warped Tour. There is only 1,000 copies in existence of the full length, 11 track album.[1] After catching the attention of larger label, Tragic Hero Records, Motionless in White then made the decision to re-record six of the album's eleven tracks which then came to be the EP version of When Love Met Destruction and the form that the album is more widely known in.[2]

Some songs from the original album version of When Love Met Destruction were later remade into new songs. Such as how "Bananamontana" was remade into the song "City Lights" which is featured on the band's 2010 full-length album, Creatures.[1]
