Founded in 2012 right outside of Cleveland, OH, Motives has been relentlessly pushing their brand of heavy music. With influence from bands like Comeback Kid, Strike Anywhere, and Stick To Your Guns, Motives is sure get your attention.

The band was founded by Kevin Burrows (guitar), Daniel Ackeman (bass), and Ian Slagle (vocals). After a few years of touring and the release of their first full length record This World, Not Dead, Merely Sleeping, the group has added guitarist Chris Hanford and drummer Mike Taddeo to complete the group. The band recently finished up working on LP 2, titled Death Throes, while still simultaneously touring as much as possible.
