As much as they’re a rallying cry for dismayed, misunderstood youth, Motionless In White are a force of near-spiritual communion for the musicians in the band. Ever since guitarist Ryan Sitkowski joined the Scranton, Pennsylvania, group in 2008, Motionless in White have formed the crux of his identity as much as it’s been his livelihood.
