Ahead of their return to the UK next week, Movements have released a new track titled ‘Afraid To Die’.

As the first slice of new music since last year’s ‘RUCKUS’ album, ‘Afraid To Die’ sees the Southern Californian deliver an energetic post-hardcore number. With an 80’s-esque influence ringing through its chorus, its rising melody demonstrates Movements’ versatility.

“With “Afraid to Die,’ we were able to take the energy that was in RUCKUS!, and fine-tune it by exploring different realms of what this band can be and what our music can sound like, and I think we did a good job of that with this song,” says Movements vocalist Patrick Miranda. “Sonically, it’s so different than anything we’ve ever done, and yet I think it still pulls on the heartstrings as a lot of our older music does. This song is energetic and bouncy, and I can see it being a really fun song to play live and I can’t wait to start doing that!”

The quartet are set to kick off their return to the UK next weekend at the Outbreak Festival. They will then play numerous headline shows throughout the UK and Ireland, before heading to the 2000Trees Festival.
