“I want people to understand that Alzheimer’s is more than the misconceptions. My own hope is that we will one day find a cure or effective treatment. It’s very possible that any one of us can lose every sense of the person we are to this disease. We are all susceptible to becoming a shell of the person we used to be, all of our collective years of memories of love … gone. It’s a scary thought, but we can do something about it.” – Patrick Miranda, Movements
California’s MOVEMENTS have partnered with the Alzheimer’s Association to debut an emotionally charged video for ‘Deadly Dull’, a fan favourite from their latest album ‘Feel Something’. Directed by Max Moore, the video depicts a vivid representation of effects of Alzheimer’s disease and dementia.
“’Deadly Dull’ is a song that we felt really needed a visual aid,” says lead singer-songwriter Patrick Miranda. “The song is powerful as it is, but adding a video really helps drive the point home and make the situation more understandable. Seeing someone you love suffer from a disease that rids them of who they are is a really hard thing to experience. We felt that director Max Moore would do a perfect job of taking this song to the next level, and we couldn’t be happier with the outcome.”
MOVEMENTS also recently announced that they will touring the UK and parts of Europe this April and May in support of their debut album “Feel Something”. The dates span the length of the UK including stops in Brighton, Glasgow, Cardiff, and London with support from Paerish & Muskets, where they then go on to Hamburg, Berlin, Munich, and Antwerp.
MOVEMENTS will also be touring the US with Can’t Swim, Super Whatevr, and Gleemer this March and have previously supported the likes of Knuckle Puck in the US in December with Tiny Moving Parts and Have Mercy in tow.
