Hardcore Band Move Drops First Singles From Forthcoming ‘Black Radical Love’

June 20, 2023

Black Lives aren’t a trend
Why can’t y’all see this through till the end.


Building on the momentum they captured with 2021’s Freedom Dreams, Boston hardcore act Move have just announced their forthcoming full length Black Radical Love due out August 11th on Triple B Records. The album is split into two sides, first capturing the frustrations and injustice of today and then focusing on the joy and hope of a better future. The band’s activist bent led by vocalist Corey Charpentier sees their songs as calls to action, and the presentation is meant to add fuel to the fire. The first two singles come from Side A and find the band in fierce form. “Imperialist Reign” takes aim at the “laws and policies that serve our demise” beneath sludgy syncopated riffs and absolutely massive drums. On “Summer Trend,” the band brings in Bleed the Pigs vocalist Kayla Phillips and River Elliott of Ballista to turn up the intensity. The trio trade lines summoning the spirit of the 2020 rebellion to remind erstwhile allies that the fight isn’t over. “Get off your ass and continue the fight.”



On the new album, Charpentier says: “We want people to listen to these songs and become energized to act, to go and find out what organizations they can join, or create one of their own in their neighborhood, town, or city that is working towards the world we all dream of liberated and free from continuous state oppression. We want to compel people to get down at our shows, stage dive, pit, crawl on the floor, grab the mic from us and scream these lyrics right into our faces, and quite literally move!”
