The Frenchmen create a sonic blast of dark musical compositions, melodic choruses, and extensive guitar solos. Disconnected are set to enjoy a host of appearances on tour in 2022 including playing major festivals this summer, including Rock Fest in Barcelona, Wacken Open Air in Germany, and HELLFEST (MAINSTAGE) in France, alongside GUNS’N'ROSES, METALLICA, MEGADETH, ALICE COOPER, NIN, etc. 'We Are Disconnected ' will be available via all major streaming platforms on Friday, April 1st.

Image
CREDIT'ART TAKI Southern California band MOVEMENTS have shared the brand-new song "Barbed Wire Body." Listen here. "'Barbed Wire Body' is a departure from the 'typical' Movements song," says vocalist Patrick Miranda. "We usually have more ebbs and flows in the dynamics of our songs. However, with this song, we really just aimed for a high energy, loud, in-your-face track that has little regard for our usual sound. We wanted to write an upbeat track with tons of energy that just felt fun and exciting. I think this song is the first of a new era of songwriting for us." While the track represents a sonic shift for Movements, the narrative follows "a person who seeks validation from others by way of intimacy," according to Miranda. "However, this person remains closed off and is unwilling to let their emotional guard down for fear of being hurt. It's the story of someone who jumps from casual relationship to casual relat
