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 band was 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 25 countries across five continents, the band returned to the studio to craft their third major label release, 2017’s What If Nothing. As the band steps in 2021 and beyond, WALK THE MOON is excited to begin releasing music from their new album Heights which is led by their anthemic new single “Can You Handle My Love??” This single is released alongside two additional new songs “Giants” and “I’m Good” with much more new music to come.
