The singer has not offered any information about his parents. He has two younger siblings (brother and sister). His brother works with their father at his workshop while his sister is still in school. Chris Motionless high school and college studies are not publicly known.
He had a rough upbringing which largely influenced everything he did. As he grew up, he witnessed his parents' constant fights, which eventually resulted in divorce. It was a tough period for him, his mother and his siblings.
As a result, he put all his fears and struggling emotions into music form. He started building his reputation as a loner. The young man behaved and dressed crazily and weirdly, making other people afraid of crossing his path.
That said, when Cerulli was 8-10 years old, his grandfather showed him how to play guitar. Despite not capturing his attention at the time, it seems those lessons struck a chord in young Chris, as he has grown up to be a musician that would make his grandpa proud.
The singer started his career after high school by doing various odd jobs for sustenance. After completing his studies, he had his first job working at a tattoo shop as a tattoo artist. He started his training to become a piercer but had to leave the job after his music career started blossoming.

By 2007, the band launched their first EP, The Whorror. After touring the United States, in 2009 they released an EP titled When Love Met Destruction under Tragic Hero recordings.
The EP's first single, Ghost in the Mirror, was well received, which encouraged them to create their first studio album, Creatures, in 2010. It debuted at number six on the Billboard Heatseeker Music Chart. The album was made of several hit singles such as Abigail, Creatures and Immaculate Misconception.
Towards the end of 2012, the music band released their 2nd studio album, Infamous. It debuted at #9 on the Independent Albums music chart and #5 on the US Top Hard Rock Albums.
