The independent foursome Moving Mountains have graced listeners' ears now for three full length albums and an impressive 4-track LP. With their most recent self-titled release, and their most critically praised album, the band announced their hiatus.
According to Moving Mountains' Facebook Page, the band has only planned three shows before heading in different musical directions. They will be playing in Connecticut, New York and Massachusetts. Moving Mountains gained popularity while touring with Thrice and Animals as Leaders during Thrice's Farewell tour. Lead vocalist Gregory Dunn explains that the band will be seeking different musical endeavors.
The group has been critically successful, but not as much commercially. Their first album Pneuma was written while Dunn was still in high school. Their second record Waves changed styles completely to a post-rock sound, and now with their self-titled record, they've settled into an alternative sound. Absolute Punk gave the album a critically high 90 percent rating, commending its vocals and musicianship.
Although it's sad to see the band split, it's also exciting to see what new things will come for them. Find out more about them on their website movmou.com.
