Moving Units formed in 2001 after Blake Miller shared his demos with musician buddies, Chris Hathwell and Johan Boegli.
After jamming Miller’s demos, the new group quickly earned a reputation for incendiary live shows throughout the LA music scene. Justin Pearson’s (The Locust, Dead Cross) influential label, Three One G, dug their sound and released their self-titled debut EP in 2002. After touring and performing a prestigious slot at Coachella Moving Units released its full-length debut, Dangerous Dreams, in 2004. They scored tours with Smashing Pumpkins and Nine Inch Nails before releasing their darker 2007 sophomore LP, Hexes for Exes. Hathwell and Boegli exited in 2011 and Miller took the Moving Units moniker with him. He released the band's third album, Neurotic Exotic, in 2013 buffereing their raw sound with a fresh electronic rock production style. In 2016, they released Damage with Care which continued to explore deeper sonic textures and featured track House Of Dolls received attention from radio around the world as well as being a favorite of film and TV music supervisors. In 2017 Miller paid homage to one of their predecessors by producing tribute album Collision With Joy Division which showcased the profound impact this haunting post punk group had on his developing music career in the early 90's. Their sixth studio album This Is Six evokes an urgent 80's darkwave intensity by layering high energy instruments and vocals with lush chorus and gated reverb.
