Named after The Police’s 1979 hit, Cincinnati quartet Walk The Moon gradually rose to fame with a quirky, colorful and unashamedly geeky blend of new wave, indie-pop and electronica. The brainchild of lead vocalist Nicholas Petricca, the group (often stylized as WALK THE MOON) formed in 2008, releasing their first E.P., The Anthem, shortly after, but went through various line-up changes before bassist Kevin Ray, guitarist Eli Maiman and drummer Sean Waugaman permanently joined the fold in 2010.
The band issued their debut album, I Want! I Want!, independently in the same year before signing to Brooklyn-based boutique company Mick Management and then landing a major label deal with RCA Records. Buoyed by support slots on tours by Grouplove, Panic! at the Disco and Weezer, a Main Stage performance at the 20th anniversary of Lollapalooza and national TV appearances on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, Last Call with Carson Daly and The Late Show with David Letterman, their self-titled sophomore peaked at No.36 on the Billboard 200 in 2012, while lead single “Anna Sun” also enjoyed MTV success thanks to a hilariously choreographed one-take promo video.
Further festival spots at the likes of Sasquatch, Firefly and Summerfest then followed, as did an opening slot on Fun.’s European trek and a North American headlining tour in which they established their live tradition of face-painting audience members. The band then licensed tracks to video game FIFA 12 and a HP Envy 4 Ultrabook commercial, while frontman Petrucci expanded his musical horizons by guesting on French electro producer Madeon’s single, “Finale.” The band added to their discography in 2013 with the Tightrope E.P. before heading back into the studio with producer Tim Pagnotta (Sugarcult) to work on their third LP.
Inspired by heart-on-your-sleeve 80s hits such as Pat Benatar’s “Hit Me With Your Best Shot” and Rick Springfield’s “Jessie’s Girl,” Talking Is Hard arrived in 2014 and reached number 16 in the US. Its lead single, the dork-rock anthem, “Shut Up and Dance,” not only gave the band their first Top 10 hit in America, but also launched their career internationally, charting high in Australia, Canada and all over Europe. In 2015, the group embarked on their biggest US tour and hit the festival circuit across the globe.
