After spending 7 weeks touring across the country, The Movement has announced their headlining Rescue tour that will get underway May 15th and stretch through the end of June. Their new single, also titled “Rescue”, will most certainly play as soundtrack to the 21 date tour.
“We’re just wrapping up a two month tour. We traveled across the country and back with our brothers Tribal Seeds. Looking forward to getting home and recharging before hitting the road on our headlining ‘Rescue’ Tour this summer!” says vocalist-guitarist Joshua Swain.
On April 14th, 2015, The Movement released their new single “Rescue” via Rootfire. This is the groups first official release since they dropped Beneath The Palms, an 11 track live-acoustic mix, back in late November 2014.
“It really speaks to the struggles that I’ve had as a musician. Contemplating life and exactly what you want out of it,” explains Joshua of “Rescue”. The song was produced by Danny Kalb, whose credits include Ben Harper, Karen O, Spirit Animal, among many more. You can pick up “Rescue” on iTunes by clicking HERE!
Their Rescue tour will most certainly include them playing “Rescue” live and when asked if there were any plans to perform any cover tracks, Joshua acknowledged that “We’ve got some cover ideas. Perhaps a Chronixx tune is in order.” They’re also known to throw in a Sublime cover into the live-set from time to time.
The tour essentially kicks off May 15th in Eagle, CO for the Eagle Outside Festival. From there they head back to the east coast where they’ll spend the bulk of the tour performing in Maryland, North Carolina, Virginia, Pennsylvania, New York, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Ohio, Florida and you get the point.
I asked Joshua where he’s looking forward to playing on the upcoming tour and he explained to me that he was born in Myrtle Beach, SC. “So it’s really cool that The Carolina Sessions is happening there,” referring to the Cali-Roots festival on October 3rd. Joshua also mentioned their May 15th Eagle Outside Festival, saying: “We’ve never played Eagle, CO. It’ll be nice to see another side of Colorado.”
