About WALK THE MOON
Hailing from Cincinnati, OH, WALK THE MOON consists of Nicholas Petricca (singer/keyboardist), Kevin Ray (bassist), Eli Maiman (guitarist), and Sean Waugaman (drummer). WALK THE MOON's new single "Kamikaze," off their most recent album What If Nothing is currently dominating the charts, following their lead single "One Foot" which hit #1 at Alternative Radio. In 2015, the band catapulted to stardom when their hit single "Shut Up and Dance", which is included on their RIAA Certified Gold album TALKING IS HARD, became a multi-platinum global smash that peaked at No. 1 on the Alternative, Hot AC, AC charts, No. 4 on the Billboard Hot 100, and went to No. 2 at Top 40 radio. The track also broke the record for consecutive weeks at #1 on Billboard's Hot Rock Songs chart at the time. "Shut Up and Dance" racked up over six million downloads and 850 million streams in the process leading to a slew of honors including winning two Billboard Music Awards, a nomination for a MTV Music Video Award for Best Rock Video, American Music Award nominations for Favorite Pop/Rock Duo or Group, New Artist of the Year, and Favorite Alternative Rock Artist. They were also nominated for an 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 has been praised by music industry tastemakers across the board since their explosive first single "Anna Sun" was released in 2012, as Interview Magazine proclaimed, "There's something about WALK THE MOON that's absolutely out of this world. Their music is addictive, energetic, and fun." Rolling Stone also raved about the band's live show, "The precocious Ohioans stack melodies upon melodies in new-wave-infected songs that attack the ear like a starving Mike Tyson."
About Fitz and the Tantrums
Los Angeles-based Fitz and the Tantrums have quickly grown from independent upstarts to bonafide hitmakers. Their current album, titled "Fitz and the Tantrums" (Elektra), features their biggest hit to date “HandClap.” The RIAA-certified Double Platinum single went top 5 on both the Hot AC and Alternative Radio charts. The band has brought the infectious energy of their live shows to the small screen, with nationally televised performances on ABC’s “Dancing With The Stars,” “Good Morning America,” and “Jimmy Kimmel Live!,” NBC’s “Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,” “America’s Got Talent,” and Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, and the syndicated “Ellen DeGeneres Show” among others.
Fitz and the Tantrums’ eponymous album follows their breakout major label debut, 2013’s "More Than Just A Dream," which featured back-to-back #1 Alternative Radio singles of the RIAA-certified Platinum “The Walker” and the RIAA-certified Platinum “Out Of My League.” The band has performed countless, sold out headlining shows and is always a standout at music festivals around the world, including Coachella, Bonnaroo, Austin City Limits, Lollapalooza N and S America and more.
About Moon Taxi
"We can come together, we won't give up on the fight," sings Nashville's Moon Taxi on their smash single "Two High," a song that catapulted them to the top of the streaming charts and the forefront of the national stage. Filled with emotive vocals, a percussive beat and some unexpected, infectious horns, it's a track that shows the band – which has been together for over a decade – venturing into more adventuresome territory than ever. Fearlessly melding rock with pop hooks, clever synths and roots touchstones gleaned from their home in Music City, Moon Taxi's forthcoming fifth record and first for RCA will find the five-piece doing what they do best: coming together and fighting for music that triumphs above all.
"Two High," the band's newest single, has been taking Moon Taxi – Trevor Terndrup (vocals, guitarist), Spencer Thomson (lead guitarist and producer), Wes Bailey (keyboardist), Tommy Putnam (bassist) and Tyler Ritter (drummer) – to new heights, topping over 60 million streams on Spotify and making heavy rotation on SiriusXM. Written in response to the push for peace, but not reacting to the politics, of the Women's March this past January, it's a song that encourages listeners to keep looking for a positive way forward – from their own internal battles, to the ones suffered by the world at large.
It's perhaps due to Moon Taxi's inspired, inclusive worldview when it comes to their music that they've been able to have songs featured as the soundtrack to multiple commercial and TV placements - from "Nashville," MLB, NFL to HBO Sports – but it's their infectious live performances that keep fans coming back night after night. Touring for the better part of the decade, they're the kind of band that inspires a loyal following willing to drive miles and miles (or fly many more) to catch them again and again.
"If there's one thing we want when people hear this record or see our shows," says Terndrup, "it's to leave elated."
