Brooklyn-based Alt-Rocker Moon Walker will be heading out on his first ever U.S. summer tour with support from Baby Bugs, Annabel Lee and Similar Kind. It kicks off on May 31, 2023 in Philadelphia, PA. The announcement comes following Moon Walker’s sophomore LP The Attack Of Mirrors, which arrived in October 2022.
Since forming in 2020 during the height of COVID-19, Moon Walker is thrilled to finally perform, stating:
I am beyond ecstatic to finally hit the road for the first time and to bring these songs to every corner of the country. I wrote both of my albums in lockdown, when I wasn’t sure if I’d ever be able to perform live again. To experience them in front of an audience will be a surreal experience for everyone involved.
With his second LP, Moon Walker reflects on the various effects the pandemic had on his life, and “took a hard look in the mirror.”
Making this record was really my way of navigating through the pandemic. In addition to the emotional havoc that was wreaked on the vast majority of human beings, I felt like my career was reaching a dead end. My band was breaking up, jobs weren’t easy to come by, my first solo record hadn’t yet seen any success, and my future felt more uncertain than it ever had before. When so little in life is going your way, it’s easy to start hating what you see in the mirror. And when you hate what you see in the mirror, you tend to put a lot of hatred into the world.
