Movements are back with not one but TWO new track, produced by Will Yip. The band has spent the past several months flexing their creative muscles, pushing their sonic boundaries, and diligently working on new material.
They have shared videos for “Killing Time” and “Lead Pipe.” Watch the videos, directed by Drew Horen, below
Here’s ‘Killing Time’.
And check out ‘Lead Pipe’ below.
“We feel they are the perfect introduction to a new era of Movements,” the band states about the new material. “These songs incorporate the core values and themes you’d expect from a Movements song — but they’re packaged up in a much different manner.”
“Killing Time” packs quite a bit of groove, tension, and dissonance. To that end, the band states that it’s “a love song with a dark, self-deprecating undertone. The verses are gritty and dense, the choruses open up into an almost pop-centric singalong before diving into a crushing bridge that exemplifies a love so strong that it can (and probably will) end up killing the narrator.”
On the flip side, “Lead Pipe” is a fast, driving, and intense tune that operates off a distorted grind engine, with the band deeming it “a classic mental health track, but one that you probably wouldn’t expect or even realize on first listen. The narrator here is describing the moment they realize their dark past is coming back to haunt them. Something they thought they’d overcome is suddenly knocking at the door and will do anything to get back in. However, this time is different. Our narrator is hellbent on ending that struggle once and for all, and has chosen to fight back instead of give in.”
The band will be returning to the UK this month for a special run of sold out headline shows and this years Slam Dunk Festival.
