After plans to tour with Knuckle Puck last year dissolved, MOVEMENTS have announced their own run of headline UK shows.
Kicking things off at Leicester‘s intimately magnificent Cookie and ending things in Camden‘s Assembly via the likes of Leeds, Birmingham and Brighton; it is quite an extensive UK schedule before the California post-hardcore outfit head out to Europe for further headline gigs.
Their debut record, Feel Something, was released last year and is somewhat of a favourite here at Loose Cardigan of Ideas. Packed with bursting choruses, e.g. Daylily‘s “I think it’s time you had a pink cloud summer,” which vocalist Patrick Miranda revealed is about his girlfriend’s mental health, Movements’ maiden full length does not shy away from real life issues and because of this have become highly appreciated. Their US tour with Can’t Swim, Super Whatevr and Gleemer this spring is further proof that Movements are flying to flag for, and alongside, exciting new prospects.
Talking about the first single from Feel Something, Colorblind, Miranda said: “We wanted the first new song everyone heard to be a heavy-hitting banger that would really hit the ground running, and set a tone for the rest of the record.” Unapologetically heavier than Daylily, Colorblind outlines the breakdown of a relationship and the lyrics revolve around questions the protagonist asks, e.g. “is there something wrong with me?”
Catching Movements in these intimate venues is an excellent opportunity to see passion drip from the band – especially after their initial UK run last year was cancelled.
Tickets for Movements’ UK tour are available now.
