Following the success of their recently released full-length RUCKUS! in late 2023, Movements have unveiled their new candid single, “Afraid To Die.” The new track arrives with an accompanying music video in which the band are seen running away from death through a series of dreams.

“With “Afraid to Die,’ we were able to take the energy that was in RUCKUS! and fine-tune it by exploring different realms of what this band can be and what our music can sound like, and I think we did a good job of that with this song,” vocalist Patrick Miranda shares. “Sonically, it’s so different than anything we’ve ever done, and yet I think it still pulls on the heartstrings as a lot of our older music does. This song is energetic and bouncy, and I can see it being a really fun song to play live, and I can’t wait to start doing that!”

Movements masterfully harness their shimmering post-hardcore style in “Afraid To Die,” with Patrick Miranda’s elongated vocal interplay against the intricate strings in the verses acting as a springboard for the anthemic chorus. The track builds in vocal intensity and instrumentation, capturing a sense of melancholy and vulnerability through lyrics such as, “So could you help me?/I think I’m thinking too much/Would you tell me/If you believed that we go somewhere when it’s done?” This uncertainty and frenetic energy are underscored by expert instrumentation, creating an exquisite backdrop for the song’s cathartic release. Watch the video for “Afraid To Die” below.
