Motograter have released the official music video for their latest single “Dorian” directed and produced by Christopher Davis (Human Twelve) who has also produced videos for bands like Dope and Angelspit. The track is taken from their sophomore album ‘Desolation’ released on Friday, August 11th, 2017 via EMP Label Group. “Dorian” has been continuously moving up the Billboard Mainstream Rock Indicator Chart, reaching #24 this week.

The official music video for “Dorian” can be viewed here: http://loudwire.com/motograter-dorian-exclusive-video-premiere-interview/

The music video for “Dorian” was recently filmed at the famous Ohio State Reformatory. The historic prison was built between 1886 and 1910 and remained in operation until 1990, when a United States Federal Court ruling (the ‘Boyd Consent Decree’) ordered the facility to be closed. While this facility was used in a number of films, TV shows and music videos, it was made famous by the film The Shawshank Redemption (1994) when it was used for the majority of the movie.

Motograter front man James Legion states, “This song is the first real single the band has released in many years. For it to be doing so well is really awesome. It was very interesting and fun to get to shoot the video for it in the Ohio State Reformatory. That place has so much character. We are very thankful to the staff for letting us stay all night and work.”

MOTOGRATER recently traveled to Mansfield Ohio to perform Ink In The Clink 2017, on the prison grounds, alongside Three Days Grace, Theory of a Dead Man, Gemini Syndrome, Starset, 10 Years, 40 Below Summer and many more. During the festival the band met up WITH Davis and shot the video for “Dorian” inside the creepy prison.

The band has made a documentary video of the experience which is included in the Motograter Tour Chronicles – Part 23 which can be viewed here: https://youtu.be/A3_lYflHofI
