After spending the past six months filling in for Motionless In White, Ice Nine Kills bass player Justin Morrow has now joined the MIW on a full-time basis. As such, Morrow has parted ways with Ice Nine Kills, who in turn have added Joe Occhiuti (ex-Venetia Fair) to their line-up.
Motionless In White had this to say:
“As many of you know, for the past few months we have be performing with our very close friend Justin Morrow, who has been filling in for our vacant bass player position. After much time spent between our band and Justin, and seeing the support of many fans who have watched him perform with us, we are honored to announce that he has made the decision to join us full time as our new bass player. He has been a perfect fit both on and off stage and we could not be happier to enter our new album cycle feeling complete once again. For more information from Justin directly, please visit his IG @Justiniceninekillerz, and for our friends in Ice Nine Kills, please visit their Facebook page to read their announcement. As always, thank you for your support, and we’ll see you on the road this year.”
Meanwhile, Ice Nine Kills issued the following statement:
“Over the last 6 months our bass player, Justin Morrow, has been filling in for Motionless In White. After much consideration, we have mutually decided to part ways and Justin will be moving forward as the bass player for Motionless in White. We are excited for Justin and wish him nothing but the best! Meanwhile, we are pleased to announce that filling Justin’s shoes will be ex-Venetia Fair member pianist/vocalist, Joe Occhiuti, who co-wrote some of ‘The Silver Scream’ and who has been a part of the extended INK family for many years. Joe brings with him an extensive multi instrument musical background and will not only be taking over bass duties, but will be contributing keys and back-up vocals, breathing even more insanity into the INK live show. We’ll see you on the road all Spring on the ‘March Into Madness’ and ‘Episode III’ tours!”
