Swedish Space/Psych Rockers The Movements Make Their U.S. Debut With The New Album Like Elephants 1

From the cultural heart of Scandinavia - Gothenburg, Sweden -comes a new psych rock band with one foot in the garage and the other in galaxies beyond! The five-piece will see their new album, Like Elephants 1, released in the U.S. for the first time November 5 by Cleopatra Records.

Recorded in their hometown and produced by the band and Michael Nilsson, Like Elephants 1swirls with psychedelic grooves, catchy rock riffs and gorgeous folk melodies like the love child of '60s freaks The Seeds and space rock legends Hawkwind! The lead off single "The Death Of John Hall D.Y." shimmers with a killer guitar riff, organ blasts and vocal harmonies straight out of '60s Woodstock. The group released a hypnotic video to accompany the single, which can be viewed here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xAI2W-PuYVY

For their second single, the propulsive rocker "Two Tongues," the band tapped Swedish director René U Valdes, who has created videos for some of that country's biggest rock exports including metal band Hardcore Superstar and Nicke Borge of Backyard Babies. Featuring The Movements' frontman David Henriksson in full glam peacock makeup, the video shows the band giving an electrifying performance that showcases some of the vintage sounds mixed with modern flourishes that await listeners of this remarkable album.

Early press has already dubbed the album a hit with Classic Rock (DE) giving Like Elephants 1 a 9 out of 10, and Stateside tastemaker site Revolt Of The Apes declaring The Movements, "a band that we'll be seeking to observe for many, many moons to come."

The band will be supporting the release of Like Elephants 1 with shows in and around Europe, including Germany and Finland.
