Cleveland post-hardcore rockers INHALE EXHALE are pleased to announce an October 9th release date for Movement, their anticipated fourth album and first with new label Red Cord Records.
Movement marks the band’s first new material since a brief hiatus following the release of 2009’s Bury Me Alive. It’s an album that finds the tightly knit quartet further perfecting the feral riffs and dynamic anthems they’ve become known for, one that shows the band haven’t “moved” away from their signature sound. Which isn’t to say that Movement sounds rehashed or recycled, but rather like a band reinvigorated.
“I think Movement comes from the same vein as Bury Me Alive, but it’s definitely a more aggressive and technical album all around,” says guitarist John LaRussa. “It has an old school feel to it. It doesn’t let up too much, but it’s really balanced with melody. Ultimately we’ve never tried to sound like anyone. We have always just wanted to make well crafted songs.”

Self-produced by LaRussa at his own Revelry Recording, Movement is a study in controlled chaos. The volatile, melody-driven anthems carry the weight of seasoned survivors who persevere come what may. It’s easily INHALE EXHALE’s most aggressive work to date – a fact only underscored by ferocity of their previous albums. On Movement, they push the envelope on all fronts while staying true to their hearts, their fans and their roots.
Following three successful albums with longtime label Solid State Records, INHALE EXHALE have become a fixture in the hardcore and metal community – setting a high bar from day one. Now, six years and four albums in, the band has seen and done it all – surviving through gimmicks and fads that have moved in and out of heavy music and learning from them to stay true to themselves. With Movement, INHALE EXHALE prove they’ve lost none of their fire and prove that today’s up-and-comers still have a lot of work to do.
