Boston hardcore band Move have today released their new full length, Black Radical Love, via Triple B Records. Guitarist Nick Hochmuth led the charge on creating the songs, demoing out the entire album during quarantine in 2021, and then working with the band collaboratively in the studio the following year to achieve what is their proudest and most creative work yet. You’ll hear hardcore songs that are begging to be moved to in the pit, and also powerful moments of spoken word provided by friends and fellow artists. Move ensured the album was a community experience, with features from Aaron Heard (Jesus Piece), Christine Cadette (Zulu), Kayla Philips (Bleed The Pigs), River Elliot (Ballista) and Gjared Robinson / Balaram Shakti Das (Out Of Body).

Move

The songs are meant as a call to act, I want people to listen to these tracks and then move to better their conditions, I want people to move at our shows. The record deals with our current position living underneath the US Imperialist state specifically a Black experience. The need for revolutionary change and the fact people are actively building a better future right now. It’s a tale of two records, Side A expresses our current frustrations and anger. Side B focuses on where we are going and the joy the journey brings us as we move towards a tomorrow where all people have their needs met to live their best lives. The aesthetics are a continuation of Freedom Dreams (EP, released 2021) as these songs are additional entries in a music-based political journal that have continued to evolve along with my own political education. With riffs and visuals that make you stop and take a second to appreciate the art. We want people to listen to these songs and become energized to act and figure out where they can take collective action with others. Just like we want people to take that same energy and be about that action in the pit too, songs that compel you to fight back against injustices and get down in the pit.” (vocalist Corey Charpentier)
