NEW MUSIC: WALK THE MOON | RISE UP

American rock band WALK THE MOON has premiered a new song called “Rise Up,” a track off the band’s upcoming album, "Heights," along with a dynamic single shot DIY music video featuring fans via RCA Records. “Rise Up" arose partly out of a long sleepless night alone in the studio, stacking vocals on vocals until the track sounded like something off of Queen‘s A Day at the Races,” says vocalist Nicholas Petricca. “The song is about how nobody’s perfect, and perseverance is universal, and I guess I needed a thousand singing voices to get that across.” In many cases, the band worked remotely. At the same time, they finished up their highly anticipated fourth studio album titled "Heights," which will be released digitally on CD on November 12th with vinyl to follow on December 10th. With the band members separated from each other and their producers, they often collaborated virtually, building this new body of work in a way they never had before. "Heights," the follow-up to 2017’s "What If Nothing," arrives November 12. It also includes the lead single “Can You Handle My Love??” Lead singer Nicholas Petricca started the band in 2006 while a student at Kenyon College, deriving the band's name from the song "Walking on the Moon" by the Police. The band is notable for its charting hit singles "Anna Sun," "Shut Up" and "Dance." The band is currently on its Dream Plane Tour with stops in major cities, including Los Angeles, New York, Chicago, Dallas and more.
