Creatures is the debut album by American gothic metal band Motionless in White, released on October 12, 2010, through Fearless Records. The album spawned four singles: "Abigail", "Immaculate Misconception", the title track "Creatures" and "Puppets (The First Snow)", all four of which have accompanying music videos. The album also spawned three promotional singles: "Abigail,"[3] which was later released as the first official single of the album, "London in Terror,"[4] and "Cobwebs."[5] The album is named in reference to Motionless in White fans, who are known as "creatures."


Concept and songs[edit]

Creatures is an album dedicated to Motionless in White's fans. The band even went as far as letting their fans send in lyrics, which were compiled on the title track; all the lines found in the song (excluding the chorus) are lyrics submitted by fans.[6] The songs "We Only Come Out at Night" and "City Lights" are re-recorded and altered versions of songs from the album version of When Love Met Destruction.[6]

Release and charting[edit]

Creatures was recorded during May 2010 with producer Andrew Wade at his recording studio, Wade Studios.[7] Upon the record's release, it debuted at #6 on the Billboard Heatseeker Chart,[8] and reached #175 on the Billboard 200.[9]

A re-release for the album was confirmed during January 2012. It was announced to feature their cover of the song "Dragula" by Rob Zombie along with two remixed songs, and was released on April 2, 2012.[10]

Music videos[edit]

A total of four songs from the album have had music videos. On December 21, 2010, a music video was released for the track "Abigail". The music video for the track "Creatures" was released on July 7, 2011, and the video for "Immaculate Misconception" surfaced on November 11, 2011, which also features Dee Snider, who makes a cameo appearance while his son, Cody directed the video.[11]

It was announced on the 2011 All Stars Tour that the song "Puppets (The First Snow)" would also be released as a single, however the music video would not be released until February 15, 2012. The video consists of the band performing at several concerts and festivals. The outdoor clips shown in the video were recorded at a live performance during the All Stars Tour's stop in Las Vegas on August 21, 2011.
