Cincinnati, OH based 4-piece Walk The Moon are set to release the 6 track TIGHTROPE EP in the UK through RCA records on March 11th. The title track is taken from their current self titled album, which is out now. Walk The Moon will also be visiting the UK for a run of UK headline dates next month, which will culminate in a show at London's Scala on February 27th.
As well as single Tightrope the EP will also feature three new recordings, 1 cover and a beloved B-side recorded amidst the band's hectic end of 2012 touring schedule.
WALK THE MOON's explosive Radio 1 B-Listed first single, Anna Sun, spent 4 weeks in the US at #1 on Sirius/XM's Alt Nation's Countdown and was voted as Seventeen Magazine's and MTV Buzzworthy's song of the summer. Anna Sun was also Greg James' (R1) and Ian Camfield's (XFM) record of the week, on the Kerrang radio B-List and XFM's Daytime playlist.
