It’s been a whirlwind few years for Movements as evidenced by the fact that band’s 2020 album Nothing Good Left to Give debuted at #3 on the Alternative chart and their streams have doubled since then with 200 million total streams in the U.S. alone. However despite their success, the Southern Californian act have constantly reinvented themselves since forming in 2015 and the band’s third full-length RUCKUS! sees the post-hardcore quartet taking their sound to expansive and sometimes unexpected places. Produced by longtime collaborator Will Yip (Circa Survive, Code Orange), the album fuses post-hardcore and punk influences with a healthy dose of pop songcraft to create an album that defies scene conventions in favor of something wholly unique. In order to accomplish this, the band—which features vocalist Patrick Miranda, guitarist Ira George, drummer Spencer York and bassist Austin Cressey—made three extended trips to Yip’s Studio 4 in Conshohocken, Pennsylvania, to write and record the collection of songs that would end up as RUCKUS! “I truly don’t believe that it could have been a more streamlined process and I don’t think we’ve ever written music that’s as good as what we put together for this record,” Miranda explains. From the distorted grind of “Lead Pipe” to the syncopated groove of “Killing Time” and pop splendor of “Tightrope,” RUCKUS! sees the band integrating decidedly different influences such as Gorillaz and Strokes into their sound to challenge people’s preconceptions of their sound.
