Canadian indie-rockers Half Moon Run reveal an explosive start to the New Year, announcing their return to Australia this January.
Known for their heavy percussive riffs and layered vocal harmonies, Half Moon Run have carved out a name for themselves since the release of their debut offering ‘Dark Eyes’ in 2012, which NME described as a “quietly stunning record”.
Coming off the back of over two years touring the world, ‘Sun Leads Me On’ was recorded in Bathouse Studios, Ontario with Nyles Spencer and producer Jim Abbiss (Arctic Monkeys, Adele, Kasabian, Bombay Bicycle Club, Temper Trap). The 13-track LP is a diverse, spacious and balanced collection of songs that claimed a coveted triple j Feature Album profile on release, with album singles ‘Turn Your Love’ and ‘Trust’ becoming high-rotation staples across the national broadcaster. The album secured a Top 5 debut in Canada, reaching the ARIA Top 40 on release in Australia.
This July, Half Moon Run will take the stage at the UK’s Latitude Festival along with an anticipated hometown headline festival appearance at Montreal’s Osheaga Festival, where they will join the likes of Radiohead, Disclosure, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Lana Del Ray and more. August sees the band take on Belgium’s Pukkelpop, followed by the UK’s Reading and Leeds Festivals, making 2016 their biggest touring year yet!
Half Moon Run have partnered with Plus 1 so that $1 from every ticket sold to their Australian concerts goes to support the Australian Literacy & Numeracy Foundation's literacy programs in remote Indigenous communities
