Spirited and quirky Cincinnati, Ohio-based indie rockers Walk the Moon formed in the late 2000s around the talents of Nicholas Petricca, Kevin Ray, Sean Waugaman, and Eli Maiman.
After independently releasing their 2010 debut album, I Want! I Want!, the band signed on with Brooklyn-based boutique management company Mick Management and began work on its follow-up LP with producer/mixer/songwriter Ben Allen at Atlanta, Georgia's Doppler Studios. The resulting sophomore outing Walk the Moon arrived in 2012 on RCA Records -- led by the single "Anna Sun," it charted inside the Top 40.
The following year saw the release of the Tightrope EP, and in December 2014 the band issued its third long-player, Talking Is Hard, via RCA. The anthemic single "Shut Up and Dance" reached the U.S. Top Ten and became an international hit. ~ James Christopher Monger, Rovi
