Purchase, New York post-hardcore quartet, Moving Mountains, will begin writing and per-recording for their forthcoming third record in the coming days. As well, the group will be headed to Atlanta to begin recording their follow-up to 2011′s Waves with Matt Goldman shortly there after. Goldman is best known for his work with Underoath and Copeland.
Moving Mountains’ sophomore LP, Waves, was a drastic departure from the group’s earlier post-rock sound. The shift formed a rift between old and new fans, but seemed to benefit the band greatly, as they scored a spot opening for Coheed and Cambria on the former’s recent national headlining tour. Released on Triple Crown Records, Waves found MovMou focusing more on traditional song structures and vocals compared to the jammy, post-rock numbers of their early career.

Anyways, this is the update Moving Mountains posted:
It’s been a little while since we’ve had a proper update, so hopefully you haven’t forgotten about us. We’re all currently settling back into our “at home lives”, after finishing tours with Coheed & Cambria, and Pianos Become The Teeth, as well as our summer headline Europe run. Both were incredible, and humbling experiences, and we thank everyone who helped us along the way. Also, thank you to everyone who supported Waves, and came to see us perform at all in the past year or so.
While at home, we’re all writing and demoing for our new full length record. We begin pre-production at the end of this month, and then head down to Atlanta to record the album with Matt Goldman. Once we start to get into the swing of things, we’ll be posting photos from the studio as well as live streaming our pre-production rehearsals. Joshua Kirby will also be writing with us, as well as performing on the new album. Consider him on board full time now. Anyways, lots of new stuff coming soon. Check back soon for updates.
Give Waves a listen if you have yet to. The album was one of the better releases of 2011.
