Pattern Is Movement Announces New Self-titled Album Out April 1st 2014 Plus Shares 'River' [Listen]

Pattern Is Movement redefine what it means to return. Their self-titled fourth album, announced today, is the story of what Christopher Ward and Andrew Thiboldeaux have seen in the six years since 2008's All Together: a new and shifting territory where a percussive primal heartbeat keeps time with the baroque melody of civilization. Counting among its touchstones everything from Drake, Fred Hammond, Mr. Roger's Neighborhood, Prince, Bollywood, Outkast, Springsteen, and Werner Herzog to peers like Bon Iver, Candy Claws, Beirut, and Thundercat, Pattern Is Movement unearths an entirely modern artifact right under our feet. It's beautiful and pulsing. It'll make you sweat.
 
Pattern Is Movement will be released on Hometapes on April 1. Album cover art and the track list were revealed today, along with the premiere of the album's lead track "River." Offering what SPIN calls "an inviting look into what Thiboldeaux and Ward have been brewing," "River" pairs nicely with neighboring album track "Suckling," (released last Fall on its own 12-inch). Pattern Is Movement begin their nationwide tour with Yellow Ostrich on March 3 (see all dates below).
 
Founded in Philadelphia by Andrew Thiboldeaux and Christopher Ward, Pattern Is Movement map a vast territory of internal exploration and external output. As the band recorded a series of albums over the past decade - The (Im)possibility of Longing, Stowaway, and All Together - they also shifted in membership and in stylistic focus, eventually solidifying into a powerful duo: Thiboldeaux on Rhodes, synth, bass, and vocals, and Ward on drums. Deeply soulful and natively genre-defying, they toured extensively, joining bands like St. Vincent, The Roots, and Shudder to Think, before delving into their fourth album and, along with it, the brightest and darkest corners of composition, orchestration, and collaboration.
