Movements are a post-hardcore[1] band from Rancho Santa Margarita, California, formed in 2015.[2]

The band was signed to a record contract with Fearless Records after playing just one show in 2015. They have released an EP, Outgrown Things in 2016 and an album, Feel Something in 2017. Feel Something peaked at 190 on the Billboard 200 chart.

History

Influenced by bands such as Title Fight, [[Oceana, Thrice and Balance and Composure, Guitarist Brett Chiodo and Vocalist Patrick Miranda got together to finally create a band after jamming together casually for years. [3] Movements was formed in January 2015 by guitarist Brett Chiodo and Patrick Miranda. Brett Chiodo recruited drummer Spencer York, and Patrick Miranda, having been in a band together before, recruited bassist Austin Cressey.[4][5]

They self-released their first single, "Protection" on January 31, 2015.[6] Guitarist Brett Chiodo wrote the lyrics and music for "Protection" as well as created the band name. Vocalist Patrick Miranda and Brett Chiodo knew it was meant to be as soon as Patrick sang his melodies over the music for the first time. [3] The band played their first show opening for Have Mercy in March 2015.[7][3] A second single, "Buried" was released on March 17.[8] A third single, "Scripted" was released on April 14.[9] After only one local gig, the band signed a three record deal with Fearless Records in August 2015.[10][11] The band chose Fearless over Hopeless Records.[10]

After recording their first EP, Outgrown Things, guitarist Brett Chiodo left the band in January 2016.[12] Chiodo wrote the all the demo songs as well as the Outgrown Things EP with the band[13] He was replaced by guitarist Ira George, who did not contribute to the writing or recording of Outgrown Things.

Their debut EP, produced by Will Yip, Outgrown Things was released on March 11, 2016.[14][15] The album reached 42 on the Indie charts.[16] That month, the band toured with Real Friends on a tour where tickets were only $5 and the bands played in unconventional places such as bowling alleys and skateparks.[17]

In April 2017, they were nominated for "Best Underground Band" at the 2017 Alternative Press Music Awards.[18]

The band played the entirety of the 2017 Warped Tour.[19] During one set of the tour, vocalist Patrick Miranda helped fill-in for Counterparts vocalist Brendan Murphy who had to miss the show due to a family emergency.[20]

Over the course of the tours, the band spent over a year and a half writing new music for their upcoming debut album.[21] On September 28, 2017, the band released the music video for their first single of their debut album.[22] "Colorblind" features a music video in which the band's lyrics are projected onto the sides of houses and buildings.[23] The album, Feel Something, was also produced by Will Yip, and released on October 20, 2017.[22] The album made reached number two on the Billboards Top New Artist Albums Chart and peaked at number 190 on the Billboard 200. The band themselves peaked at number 23 on the Emerging Artists chart.[16]

In November 2017, they were scheduled to tour Europe with Knuckle Puck, Tiny Moving Parts and Have Mercy.[24] However, Knuckle Puck canceled the tour.[25] In 2018 they embarked on a headlining tour with Can't Swim, Super Whatevr and Gleemer.[26] Afterwards, they will go on a UK tour with Muskets and Paerish.[27] The band performed a DJ set at Emo Nite Day hosted by Emo Nite in Los Angeles in December 2017.[28]

In March 2018, the band released a music video for the song "Deadly Dull". The band teamed up with Alzheimer's Association for the video to spread awareness.[29] In November 2018, they released a cover of R.E.M.'s "Losing My Religion" as part of Songs that Saved My Life compilation released on Hopeless Records.[30]

Musical style, lyrics and influence

The band's music is a mixture of post-hardcore,[31]emo,[32]alternative rock,[1] and spoken word.[33][1] They are considered part of the Emo revival movement.[34][35]

Vocalist Patrick Miranda has been diagnosed with Obsessive-compulsive disorder and has struggled with depression and anxiety, struggles that heavily influence the band's lyrics.[36][10][37][1] Other lyrical themes include heartbreak and tense relationships with parents.[10] The song "Deadly Dull" is written about Alzheimers disease, which Miranda's grandmother suffered from.[38]

The band was influenced by artists such as Title Fight, Balance and Composure, My Chemical Romance, Underoath, The Devil Wears Prada and Good Charlotte.[3][39]
