Motion City Soundtrack are gearing up to finally take their beloved 2005 sophomore album Commit This to Memory on tour this summer, and we're also teaming with the band on a new translucent ruby red vinyl pressing of their classic 2003 debut I Am the Movie, limited to just 300 copies. Pre-order yours while they last.

Recorded with producer Ed Rose (The Appleseed Cast, The Casket Lottery, etc), I Am the Movie was released on Epitaph in 2003 and it birthed the band's breakthrough single, "The Future Freaks Me Out." Their quirky, synth-fueled, power pop-inspired emo was always a little weirder and more "indie rock" than the Warped Tour bands they were often associated with, and that was clear off the bat with this album, which has aged a lot better than a lot of the other pop punk/emo records that were coming out around this time. If you haven't heard it in a while (or ever), it's worth giving a spin. Stream it and watch a couple videos from the album below.

Motion City Soundtrack's Commit This To Memory tour with All Get Out hits the NYC-area on June 18 at Starland Ballroom and June 19 at Terminal 5. All dates here.
