Today, The Movement will begin their 31-city U.S. Tour by kicking things off tonight in Boone, North Carolina and wrapping things up on May 31st in Santa Ana, CA. As a perk, the group is giving away an 11 song sampler to celebrate the tour, plus 2 FREE albums if you purchase a ticket…
Hailing from Columbia, South Carolina, the reggae-rock group re-formed in 2012 with Josh Swain back on Guitar & Vocals. The quartet has been busy having already released a new album with Side by Side featuring Josh back on Guitar/Vocals last August. Since reforming, the group has been touring non-stop while under new management with Rootfire.
Back in January, former Stick Figure bassist & producer, Brendan Dane, aka Alific joined the group on Keys & DJ. With Alific joining the group, the up to date line up includes Josh Swain on Vocals/Guitar, Jason ‘Smiles’ Schmidt & Gary Jackson on Drums.
