TVD Ticket Giveaway: Walk The Moon in
the city and venue of your choice

Cincinnati’s own indie rock quartet is at it again! Walk The Moon is back with a brand new mix of electro rock dance beats to get you moving with their sophomore effort Talking Is Hard, released through RCA Records tomorrow, December 2.

These dance-rock extraordinaires have been receiving a lot of attention ever since they performed at the 2012 SXSW Music Festival. This latest album is a follow-up to their 2012 self-titled debut that included Billboard favorite “Anna Sun.” Given the success of their first record, one would imagine a sophomore album comes with a lot of expectations, but it seems the boys were able to pull it off effortlessly.

The album’s first single, “Shut Up And Dance” is a catchy electro-rock, pop track with “big synths and drums.” It was released on Spotify in November and shot to No. 1 on their viral top 50 US chart where it stayed for two weeks. The rest of the album is jam-packed with catchy pop numbers like “Sidekick,” “Avalanche,” and “Work This Body.” Produced by Tim Pagnotta (Neon Trees, Tokyo Police Club) and mixed by Neal Avron (Weezer), it is no surprise the tracks on Talking Is Hard make you want to shake it.

We had an opportunity to sit down with bassist, Kevin Ray back in 2011 while they were on tour with Fitz & The Tantrums. When asked how he would describe their music, Ray said “what comes to mind is the sound of the blood pumping through my eardrums at the end of a 24-hour dance party at David Bowie’s house with The Killers DJing. But, honestly, we like to write music that moves you both mentally and physically. From the Beatles to Animal Collective, we pull influence from a wide time span and give it all a dancy twist.”

And Walk The Moon indeed puts on one hell of a show. Band members, Nicholas Petricca (vocals, keyboards), Kevin Ray (bass guitar, vocals), Eli Maiman (guitar, vocals), and Sean Waugaman (drums, percussion, vocals) paint their faces and bounce around on stage, force feeding the crowd copious amounts of infectious electro-danceability.

“In concert, it’s clear that Walk The Moon’s live show is not a spectator sport. Instead it’s an interactive celebration of life and love, a communal commitment to joy, and living in the moment.”

Enter to win tickets to see Walk The Moon in the city and on the date of your choice from the tour itinerary below by leaving a comment citing the track—older or brand new—you’d most like to hear performed live AND the city and date where you’d like to catch the show.
