Rise Records and NY-based rock band The Movielife are streaming new song “ Ghosts In The Photographs,” the second song released from the band’s forthcoming studio album, Cities In Search Of A Heart. Premiering now on The FADER, “Ghosts In The Photographs” is frontman Vinnie Caruana ’s call for societal self-betterment in an attempt to expel the negativity present in all of our lives. “The light generated by an army of people striving to be better and to spread more love can destroy the black clouds around us,” Caruana says. “We all have to learn and grow from our mistakes. I don’t want to be haunted by mine; I want them to fuel me to be a better person and to keep pushing forward towards the light.”

Cities In Search Of A Heart, The Movielife’s first offering since 2003’s seminal Forty Hour Train Back To Penn, marks the band’s triumphant return to form and is set to be released on Friday 22nd September by Rise Records.

Don’t call Cities In Search Of A Heart a comeback album because reunions rarely sound as inspired as this. This is a record that shows how much the group’s songwriters—vocalist Caruana and guitarist Brandon Reilly —have grown since 2003’s Forty Hour Train Back To Penn, and it offers up their most inspired and energized songwriting to date. Whether you’ve loved The Movielife since they were a scrappy Long Island hardcore band in the early 2000s or you’re a recent initiate, it’s difficult not to get caught up in the kinetic energy and lyrical honesty that permeates every note of Cities In Search Of A Heart.
