WALK THE MOON Drop New Track “Rise Up” Along With The Music Video – New Album ‘Heights’ Coming November 12, 2021 – Currently On “Dream Plane” Tour

(Los Angeles, CA – October 27th, 2021) Critically acclaimed band WALK THE MOON release their new track “Rise Up” along with a dynamic single shot DIY music video featuring fans via RCA Records. Check it out HERE. “Rise Up” follows the bands previously released tracks “Fire In Your House” ft. Johnny Clegg & Jesse Clegg, “DNA” (The Keys), “Giants”, “I’m Good” and their explosive lead single “Can You Handle My Love??” which the band performed on NBC’s Late Night with Seth Meyers (watch HERE) and ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live! (watch HERE).

The band worked remotely in many cases while they finished up their highly anticipated fourth studio album titled HEIGHTS which will be released on November 12th, 2021. With the band members separated from each other and from their producers, they often collaborated virtually, building this new body of work in a way they never have before.

About “Rise Up”, Nicholas Petricca says, ““Rise Up” arose partly out of a long sleepless night alone in the studio, stacking vocals on vocals until the track sounded like something off of Queen’s A Day At The Races. The song is about how nobody’s perfect and perseverance is universal, and I guess I needed a thousand singing voices to really get that across.”

WALK THE MOON is currently on their “Dream Plane” tour with stops in major cities including Los Angeles, New York, Chicago, Dallas and more. To purchase tickets go HERE.

Hailing from Cincinnati, OH, WALK THE MOON consists of Nicholas Petricca (singer/keyboardist), Eli Maiman (guitarist), and Sean Waugaman (drummer). In 2015, the band catapulted to stardom when their hit single “Shut Up and Dance”, which is included on their RIAA Certified Platinum album TALKING IS HARD, became a multi-platinum global smash that peaked at No. 1 on the Alternative, Hot AC, and AC charts, went to No. 2 at Top 40 radio, No. 4 on the Billboard Hot 100, and broke the record for consecutive weeks at #1 on the Billboard Hot Rock Songs chart. Throughout their career, the band has had a slew of honors including winning two Billboard Music Awards, and nominations for an MTV Music Video Award for Best Rock Video, American Music Award for Favorite Pop/Rock Duo Or Group, New Artist of the Year, and Favorite Alternative Rock Artist and iHeart Radio Music Award for Best Duo/Group of the Year, Song of the Year, and Alternative Rock Song of the Year for “Shut Up and Dance.” WALK THE MOON’s third album, 2017’s What If Nothing, included hits such as “Kamikaze” and the #1 Alternative Radio hit “One Foot”. WALK THE MOON’s highly anticipated fourth album is due November 12th, 2021.
