Pattern Is Movement

Andrew Thiboldeaux and Chris Ward embody Pattern is Movement and the music that's been a long time building, rising out of the ether of evangelical childhoods, best friendship, and life in Philadelphia. The two met at the ages of 13 and 14 --- as part of a Christian hip hop group. Raised in strict Pentecostal households and schools (see Jesus Camp), both Andrew and Chris found refuge in their shared love for Dr. Dre's The Chronic --- and a friendship born out of secular escape turned into a creative collaboration. In high school, hand-me-down church sound equipment and a weekend obsession with making and recording music provided the means for what became Pattern is Movement.

Following their first three records, endless shows and tours (among them dates with friends St. Vincent, David Bazan, and The Forms), and the transition from four-to-three-to-two members, Pattern is Movement turned themselves inside out and made the record we've all been waiting for: All Together. All Together will be released on Hometapes on April 1, 2008. A sneak preview was released this Fall, a limited edition clear-vinyl 7" single featuring album track "Right Away" and the total-reason-for-getting-your-hands-on-the-vinyl, "Korea." Recommended!
