Alongside their performances at this year's Slam Dunk Festival, Movements are making the most of their visit to the UK with a handful of headline shows. The first of which being tonight at Camden Underworld in London, their first headline show in the UK in 5 years, so it no suprise there was already a queue of eager fans excited for tonight's show.
Up first is UK band Angel Number coming on stage to an already pretty packed out room. Coming on stage with an atmospheric backing track a smoke machine filling the room they very quickly and easily got the attention of the room. Through the strobe lighting and the bands stage pression it's very clear they knew what type of show they wanted to put on and exactly how to do it. Each song perfectly flowing into each other and the members perfectly in sync. A brief introduction a few songs in vocalist took the time to thank not just Movements for having them on the show but to everyone on attendance for their attention. While it seems not many people were familiar with them before tonight, they have definitely earned some new fans with tonights performance.
It wasn't long before the 500 cap venue was completely full of fans waiting for tonight's headliners to come on stage and you could feel the excitement in the air. Opening with Third Degree the energy in the room exploded as Movements came onto the stage. Despite the limited space in the venue it didn't stop the whole crowd moving and it didn't take long for the first few crowd surfers to make their way over the crowd. With a setlist full of fan favorites, and some older throwbacks tonight's crowd also got to witness the live debut of two new tracks, Lead Pipe and Killing Time and despite the songs still being fresh it didn't stop the crowd from enthusiastically singing along. Vocalist Spencer took time in the high energy set to speak to the crowd commenting on how long it's been since the band headlined London and how tonight was quickly becoming their favorite London show. As the set progressed it felt like the crowd was trying to match the bands energy and vice versa so it was no shock as the band closed their set the crowd saw this as last chance to prove themselves with multiple people stage diving, even a slight technical error mid song didn't slow down the band or the crowd.
It's clear tonights show is special to both the band and every fan in the room who will be leaving tonight's show eagerly waiting for them to make their return to London and with a new album on the way it hopefully won't be a long wait.
