NEWS: Walk The Moon Release Anna Sun EP



“The precocious Ohioans stack melodies upon melodies in new-wave-inflected songs that attack the ear like a starving Mike Tyson.”
Rolling Stone 

Ohio’s WALK THE MOON are bringing their new album, Anna Sun EP, on the road to Canada this March. The EP, released on February 7th through RCA Records, features three tracks, Tightrope, Next In Line and the explosive Anna Sun. The band will kick off their Canadian tour dates in Toronto as support for Young The Giant on March 1st at The Sound Academy. They will also visit Ottawa, Montreal, Quebec City and Vancouver (full details listed below). The EP is available at all digital service providers as well as in physical form at all WALK THE MOON shows.

Early this year WALK THE MOON were busy in the studio finishing up their full length album, which is produced by Ben H. Allen (Gnarls Barkley, Animal Collective). The album will feature a host of new songs as well as new versions of songs from their independently released 2010 album i want! i want!, including the tracks featured on the Anna Sun EP.

After being featured in a profile piece on NBC’s Last Call with Carson Daly last spring following their stint at SXSW, WALK THE MOON returned to network television on February 16th when Last Call filmed their live performance at The Wiltern. On April 5th WALK THE MOON will be making their first-ever live performance on late night television when they visit Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.

Named one of “MTV’s Artists to Watch for 2012,” WALK THE MOON, who will also be playing MTVU’s first ever “Woodies Tour”, have captured the attention of fans and critics alike with their colorful and energetic live performances, as well as the eye catching and whimsical video for Anna Sun which is currently in rotation on MTVU.   Check out the official video here. They are currently on the road with Young the Giant on their North American tour and then will tour with Kaiser Chiefs including a stop at SXSW. Later this year they will also be headlining select North American markets.

Launched in Ohio in 2008 by lead singer, songwriter and keyboard player Nicholas Petricca, WALK THE MOON includes Kevin Ray (bass, vocals), Eli Maiman (guitar, vocals) and Sean Waugaman (drums, vocals).

I can't get enough of Walk the Moon. I stumbled over this acoustic performance of Next in Line. Seriously, it's worth checking out.
