Phoenix Thrashers MOTIVE Posts New Video ‘Goodbye Again’ + Vinyl Release of “Fight The World” + USA Tour Dates


Phoenix, AZ’s MOTIVE will be unleashing their latest album, “Fight The World”, on vinyl, July 12, 2019, via Metal Devastation Records. Released digitally and on CD December 1, 2018, the album is fast, aggressive, and a chunky blend of thrash that has been well met by legions of metalheads around the world. Featuring a solid collection of 10 tracks, the album’s goal is to make you thrash, mosh and for the tunes to be stuck in your head with no escape.

The band adds:

“Fight The World” is loaded with riffs, hooks, guitar solos, heavy ass bass, tight acoustic drums, and some strong vocals. We hope fans can’t turn it off, and we hope the energy of the songs is addictive!”

Loaded with modern tones, MOTIVE takes the thrash and groove base and blends a touch of death metal and heavy rock elements into the fray. This can be experienced with their latest lyric video for the track ‘Goodbye Again’ that the band has teamed up with to premiere.

MOTIVE details the track:

“Heavy driving groove, with some Thrash and Death that takes it to the next level.  A song about past/repeat/bad relationships, bad habits, bad choices, break free once and for all.”
