Pattern Is Movement Announce Farewell Tour

Philadelphia experimental pop duo Pattern Is Movement will break up after a farewell tour this June. Andrew Thiboldeaux and Christopher Ward first met 22 years ago and played their first show 13 years ago. Since then Pattern Is Movement released four albums, including last year’s excellent self-titled effort. They also released noteworthy covers of D’Angelo’s “Untitled (How Does It Feel),” Beyoncé’s “Crazy In Love,” and Björk’s “Enjoy,” the last of which was part of Enjoyed, Stereogum’s Post tribute album. They still have some new music coming out before they hang it up, including a Shaking Through session next month and one last single as part of the Joyful Noise Flexi Disc Series. Listen to their great “Suckling” below, and check out the farewell tour dates.
