Moon Taxi returns to Hargray Capitol Theatre

"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. “Two High” propelled the band to new heights, with over 116 million streams on Spotify to date (as of March ‘19), surpassing 3 million video views (lyric + official), enjoying heavy rotation play on multiple SiriusXM stations, topping the AAA radio chart #1 and charting Top 10 at Alternative Radio. “Two High” encourages listeners to keep looking for a positive way forward – from their own internal battles, to the ones challenging the world at large.

Fearlessly melding rock with pop hooks, clever synths and roots touchstones gleaned from their home in Music City, Moon Taxi's fifth record and first for RCA Records, Let The Record Play, finds the five-piece doing what they do best: coming together and creating music that triumphs above all. The band performed “Two High” on the Today Show and Jimmy Kimmel Live.

In addition to commercial breakthroughs, the press praised Moon Taxi’s Let The Record Play. Rolling Stone wrote: “Over the last few years, Nashville’s Moon Taxi have worked their way up from Bonnaroo buzz-band to something approaching Kings of Leon country, playing a pleasingly cross-bred rock – a little indie, a little proggy, kinda poppy.” NPR raved of their musicality: “Moon Taxi a jam band – that is, if its instrumental excursions weren’t so concise, carefully thought-out and frequently refined in the years they’ve spent touring.” And their hometown paper, The Tennessean declared: “Moon Taxi evolves from ‘college project’ to rock stars.”

The band has thrived on the touring circuit for years, bringing their electric performances to Coachella, Austin City Limits, Bonnaroo, and beyond. The band also celebrated a career-defining moment as “Nashville’s own” in October ’17 when they performed at a two night, sold-out run at the famed Ryman Auditorium. Their music has been embraced as well by brands using their songs for many commercial and TV placements - from JEEP, to Microsoft Surface Pro, McDonald’s, to BMW, along with landmark sporting events including the Olympics, MLB, NFL, and NHL and HBO Sports. Their songs are motivational and energizing, and they have become a “go-to” band for songs that inspire forging ahead.

Moon Taxi is Trevor Terndrup (vocals, guitarist), Spencer Thomson (lead guitarist and producer), Wes Bailey (keyboardist), Tommy Putnam (bassist) and Tyler Ritter (drummer).

"If there's one thing we want when people hear this record or see our shows," says Terndrup, "it's to leave elated."

In late 2012, four schoolmates joined together to form something that would become much larger than the sum of its parts. Hailing from the musical mecca of Athens, Georgia, Walden emerged as the city’s newest rock sound. The band quickly captured the college town’s attention, taking them from a debut performance at a Pizza Hut to a headline show at the historic Georgia Theatre just two years later.

Comprised of Richard Becker (vocals/guitar), Jamie de Lange (bass), Eric Hangartner (vocals/piano) and Andrew Mendel (drums) the quartet has remained just that ever since. While each share a dream of traveling the world creating music, they are drawn together by a common understanding of what’s truly sacred: the band.

6 years after its inception, Walden has burst onto the scene with many major festival appearances, including two years in a row at Bonnaroo, a main stage performance at Sloss Music & Arts Festival, as well as directly supporting names including Moon Taxi and Twiddle. These four young men have quickly become one of the biggest upcoming musical acts in the southeast, capturing the attention of audiences of all ages with their raw sound, infectious energy, and the undeniable connection they share on stage.

2019 already looks to be the biggest year yet for Walden. In addition to announcing their new EP, The Static, they are slated to play Shaky Knees Music Festival and Kaaboo Del Mar Fest, followed by a subsequent headlining tour in April and May.

Walden’s new EP, The Static, chronicles the band’s attempt to navigate through the perpetual noise that pervades everyday life in search of something else -- something of true purpose and meaning which brings one a sense of truly feeling alive. The Static will be available everywhere April 5th, 2019.
