Ohio’s Walk the Moon have been captivating audiences with their energetic live shows for the better part of a decade. The band first made a name for themselves by touring relentlessly in support of their self-titled debut, which featured the indie classic “Anna Sun.” The alt-rock-pop quartet were then catapulted into the spotlight when 2014’s “Shut Up and Dance” became a multi-platinum global smash, crossing sonic barriers to top three different Billboard charts. After two years of performing countless sold out shows in twenty-five countries across five continents, the band returned to the studio to craft their third major label release, 2017’s What If Nothing. The new album shows the band simultaneously at their most epic and their most vulnerable, a daring step forward both musically and lyrically.
This year, through community support and corporate and individual donations, Band Together and Triangle Family Services aim to raise $1 million. Proceeds raised during the 2018 partnership year will be used to provide access to mental health services for up to 600 individuals in our community.
