After their memorable first show in the Philippines in 2018, Minnesota’s Tiny Moving Parts are making their way back to Manila with fresh tunes. PULP Live World and Skesh Entertainment proudly present Tiny Moving Parts Live in Manila 2020, happening on February 9, 2020 at the Skydome, SM City North EDSA.
With the release of their brand new album breathe, Tiny Moving Parts are set to deliver another show that’s every bit the energetic set that their fans enjoy from start to finish. Newly signed by Hopeless Records, the trio (composed of brothers Matt and Billy Chevalier, along with their cousin Dylan Mattheisen) are indeed breathing new life to their music, five full-length albums into a career that’s lasted for over a decade now.
“This record covers things we’ve talked about in the past—the fear of dying, losing someone through moving away or the passing of someone—but it concentrates more on the positives, and being happy things happened instead of sad they’re taken away,” shares vocalist/guitarist Dylan Mattheisen in a press release. “It’s about finding that mindset to keep on powering through.”
breathe was written on the road, in between tours they’ve carried out in support of their previous record, Swell, which came out January 2018. Moving forward sonically and emotionally with breathe, they’ve delivered through this album the same emotionally-driven blend of math-rock, pop-punk, and emo, but not without expanding their sound.
“We’re not trying to do anything, we’re just playing music. And if they label us, they label us. It’s not like it bothers us. They’re gonna call us something,” drummer Billy Chevalier tells PULP Magazine in an exclusive interview, reflecting on how their music is described by the public. “We always want to keep it interesting and keep it different, unique,” Dylan adds. “We love sing-along parts, but we also live chaotic craziness, so it’s just trying to find a blend of what we all love about music… whatever feels right, we do it.”
With vivid flashbacks of their frenetic first Manila show in September 2018, the thought of having them back in town for an even more insane show is nothing short of exciting. “We are so freaking excited to come back to Asia!!! Last year was our first time and it was absolutely incredible. We love our fans over there and can’t wait to party again with everyone,” shares Dylan, excited to be coming back to this side of the world. Last year’s Manila gig, also powered by PULP Live World, was the biggest show of the band’s entire 2018 Asia Tour, and fans can look forward to an even bigger show when they return. If you’ve been waiting for a slight break, this show surely couldn’t have come at a better time.
