Moving Mountains is a post-rock four-piece from Purchase, New York. The band recently announced that WAVES, their second full-length album, will be released May 10 through Triple Crown Records. The album was mixed by Matt Goldman (Underoath, Copeland, Anberlin) and produced by Moving Mountains singer and guitarist Gregory Dunn. WAVES, like Moving Mountain’s previous releases, takes on the topics of the death of a friend and the grief that comes with that.
“When the band first started, a very close friend of mine died,” Dunn said. “The motivation for all the lyrics on Pneumapneuma, Foreword and now this new album have all been about that…being young and having people around you die. A lot of it is also my struggle with understanding faith and existence…and just about questioning those ideas–and most importantly–how to overcome that to appreciate what you have.”
Currently, fans can catch Moving Mountains on tour with with Into It. Over It. Then the band will make their debut at South by Southwest on Wednesday March 16 at the Topshelf Records/Count Your Lucky Stars Records party. In addition, Moving Mountains will play the Krazy Fest 2011 in Louisville, KY and the entirety of the Vans Warped Tour.
