As we witness many of the bands that made the early-2000s pop-punk scene so great reemerge with new tours, new albums, and new life, few do so with the fire of Long Island’s The Movielife. Just walk into any Movielife show on their current tour and you’ll find the crowd belching out each word with all the conviction in the world as vocalist Vinnie Caruana aims the mic back at the pit.

Fourteen years since the release of their most recent studio album, Drive-Thru’s Forty Hour Train Back To Penn, The Movielife returns with the long awaited Rise Records release, Cities In Search of a Heart. 

“The dichotomy of The Movielife has always been upbeat music combined with sometimes unsettling lyrics and on this record that dark cloud is being addressed throughout the record in different ways,” explains Caruana of the new album.

You can listen to it here:



Tonight the Movielife will celebrate their triumph with a record release party at The Warsaw in Brooklyn, NY. To bring their fans something special, the band has partnered with Greenport Brewing Co. and Monarch Beverage to create their own beer called “Haze Grenade” (a callback to their beloved song “Hand Grenade”). The 8.1% ABV double IPA will be available for purchase at the show.

Following tonight’s set, The Movielife will continue their current co-headlining tour with old friends, The Early November.
