WALK THE MOON consists of Nicholas Petricca (lead singer, songwriter and keyboard player), Eli Maiman (guitar, vocals), Kevin Ray (bass, vocals) and Sean Waugaman (drums, vocals) all hailing from Ohio. After the band’s explosive first single “Anna Sun”, including the beloved music video which became a viral sensation with over 9 million Vevo views to date, WALK THE MOON was praised by music industry tastemakers across the board. “There’s something about WALK THE MOON that’s absolutely out of this world. Their music is addictive, energetic, and fun.” proclaimed Interview Magazine.

In 2012, now signed to RCA Records, WALK THE MOON was named one of MTV’s 2012 Artists To Watch and were poised to release their self titled debut album through the label. The band made their network television debut with a spotlight feature on NBC’s Last Call With Carson Daly and would follow up that performance with appearances on Letterman, Fallon and Conan. That same year they would embark on their first headlining tour having previously toured with a variety of bands including Weezer, Grouplove, Young the Giant and Kaiser Chiefs. “The precocious Ohioans stack melodies upon melodies in new-wave-infected songs that attack the ear like a starving Mike Tyson” raved Rolling Stone about the band on tour.
