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 25 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.

Known worldwide for their unparalleled streak of hits, Shinedown is without question one of the most successful Rock bands of the 21st century. The multiplatinum group’s forthcoming 5th studio album THREAT TO SURVIVAL arrives September 18th and features the chart-topping, lead single “Cut The Cord,” which stands tall at #1 on the Active Rock radio chart for its 3rd consecutive week. The band’s unmatched ascendancy over multi-format Rock radio commenced with their 2003 debut LEAVE A WHISPER and the 2005 follow-up, US AND THEM. Together, both albums yielded seven consecutive top 5 radio hits, including the #1 blockbuster, “Save Me.” Released in 2008, THE SOUND OF MADNESS proved to be Shinedown’s mainstream breakthrough, debuting at #8 on the Billboard 200 before spending 120 consecutive weeks on the chart. The album made Rock history, with each of its six singles reaching #1 on the airplay rankings, including the double-platinum certified crossover smash, “Second Chance,” which also went to #1 on the Hot AC chart and top 3 at Top 40. AMARYLLIS followed in 2012 and immediately entered Billboard’s “Rock Albums” chart at #1 while also coming in at #4 on the overall Billboard 200 — the multi-platinum group’s biggest chart debut thus far. The album spawned a trio of massive hits in “Bully,” “Unity,” and “Enemies,” all of which reached #1 at Active Rock radio, bringing Shinedown’s tally of consecutive chart-toppers at the format to an amazing nine and counting. In addition, two additional singles from AMARYLLIS — “I’ll Follow You” and “Adrenaline” — both reached the top 5 at Rock radio, furthering Shinedown’s extraordinary streak of top-charting singles.

Reviews of the Too Weird To Live, Too Rare To Die Tour have been effusive:

“Urie danced his way across the stage during each song as he mirrored the crowd’s fervent energy, which was at full throttle the entire night…He isn’t afraid to hit those high falsetto notes to demonstrate his brilliant vocal range, show off some dance moves, or run around bare-chested performing acrobatics off the stage equipment.” –The Miami New Times

“Lead singer Brendon Urie’s voice is powerful and excellent…the energy level last night started high and never waned.” –Consequence of Sound

“The Marquee was transformed into a rock church during ‘This Is Gospel,’ as stained-glass images lit the stage. The audience faithfully followed Urie, who commanded the room as if it were his church.” –The Phoenix New Times

Panic! will also stage a takeover of the TV airwaves performing on The Ellen DeGeneres Show and on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson on Wednesday, March 5th.

The group’s fourth studio album Too Weird to Live, Too Rare to Die! debuted at #2 on the Billboard 200 Chart in October. “This Is Gospel,” the second single from the album has over 10 million YouTube views, is currently impacting radio and follows “Miss Jackson” which hit Top 10 at Alternative Radio.
