The best kept secret in music


""Zip.Boom.Hah" Review"

"This EP feels like a time machine and you can visit it and travel back to the big artists that it seems they take influence from, such as the Beatles, Hendrix and others that had such big impacts. It seems that Motion Picture Demise has succeeded in what they have set up to do, make a great EP and make it their way." -

"Smother Review"

"Impressive to say the least." - Smother Magazine

"Rough Edge Review"

Richmond, Virginia’s Motion Picture Demise is another high-spirited pop-flavored garage band that trails on the heels of contemporaries such as The Bangkok Five, Sahara Hotnights and Wolfmother that collectively honor classic seventies feelgood rock grooves. Motion Picture Demise is equally catchy to their peers with just a shade of flamboyance to the blatant sway of Travis Tucker’s vocals and their sock-you-in-the-teeth rock ‘n roll on tracks. -

"Pastepunk Review"

"Motion Picture Demise simply rock." -

"WRANKmusic Review"

"The next big thing." -

"AMP Review"

"Thick, full rock with lots of hooks and heavy guitars." - AMP Magazine

" Review"

"MPD takes a natural, straight-up rock approach to music, neglecting today’s sporadic music trends...heavy on the Americana rock sound reminiscent of the Black Crowes with a dash of updated flair"


"Ultimate-Guitar Review"

"If you like a little of Guns N' Roses sound, and like Lenny Kravitz singing, this is a perfect CD for you."

Feeling a bit camera shy


Richmond, VA based, Motion Picture Demise is rapidly making their mark on the music scene. The five have no problem setting themselves apart from the rest with intelligent lyrics, dynamic melodies and intense rhythms. On their follow up album, Motion Picture Demise is making it nearly impossible for listeners to answer the all-too-common question, “Who do they sound like?” In the fall of 2005 the band set out to write a record uninhibited by genre labels in an effort to distance themselves from the dime-a-dozen, flavor of the week groups who only exist to cash in on pre-existing trends. Front man Travis Tucker displays a truly unique voice boasting a great range from underlying whispers on “Fail With Me” to full-on wails in “Causin’ A Stir”. The record’s strength also lies in the jaw dropping guitar lines of guitarists Ferraro and Howard. At the heart of the CD are riffs and solos that seem to expand on the licks of seminal rock bands from the 70’s and 80’s. Their unforgettable live performance has each song flowing from one to the next, creating an epic magnetism. With music that will make the little hairs on the back of your neck stand up and a live show brimming with heart, guts, and sweat, Motion Picture Demise is headed for enormity. The band has toured nationally while sharing the stage with such acts as Underoath, Beloved (US), Midtown, Armor for Sleep, Boys Night Out, Steel Train, A Small Victory, Far-Less, Tokyo Rose, Figure Four, and many more. They have also played the SXSW Music Festival in Austin, TX and the Noise Pop Festival in San Francisco, CA. Look for Motion Picture Demise on tour across the United States and Canada in 2006.

Motion Picture Demise's forthcoming album was produced by Daniel James Goodwin, (Murder by Death, Thursday, The Blackout Pact, etc…) at the world famous Clubhouse studio in Rhinebeck, NY. Mastered by Dominick Maita (Fall Out Boy, Hawthorne Heights, Spitalfield, Lola Ray, etc…) at Airshow Mastering.
