There are/have been four bands called ‘The Motion’

1. The Motion
Was the very first response to the band’s self titled demo from 2004 and its introduction to the world. The Motion from Brabant, (Holland) began their adventure in October 2003. After they experimented with their sound in search of their own, they recorded a three song demo at Rekorder studio in Hamburg. The critics couldn’t miss it: ‘Solid rock and emo: The Motion from Tilburg knows what to do with that. With these songs this quartet already belongs between great Dutch bands such as Face Tomorrow and Green Lizard’, wrote one of the biggest Dutch hard rock magazines Aardschok. ‘The Motion is an incredibly tight collective that knows how to create an atmosphere in generally heavy songs’, states another Dutch music magazine Live XS.

The Motion hasn’t sat still after its praising start. It started to play as many shows as possible. In its 4th show, the band opened for the famous Dutch band Face Tomorrow and was able to play in a sold out venue called W2. The band is live as convincing as on CD: ‘The sound which The Motion plays catches on and this foursome knows how to build up a song strikingly well’ (KindaMuzik about the W2 show). The band also played several shows in Belgium, including a gig at one of Belgium’s greatest rock festivals Groezrock.
