The Movielife This Time Next Year cover the Movielife News Alternative Press

In 1997, The Movielife was formed and soon went from basement shows to supporting its debut album, It's Go Time, which was released on Fadeaway Records in September 1999. In 2000, This Time Next Year was released by Revelation Records. In 2001, The Movielife signed to Drive-Thru Records, and the Has a Gambling Problem EP was released. While en route to their next show the band wrecked their van in Jamestown, North Dakota. While the accident luckily only caused minor injuries, the mental anguish and already stressed relationships between the band members began to tear. During the recording of the follow-up full length, founding member Alex Amiruddin quit to start Keep Breathing. He was replaced by Dan Navetta, Phil's younger brother. In 2003, Forty Hour Train Back to Penn was released, and The Movielife again set out on tour in support of the effort. The album reached number 164 on the Billboard 200.
