Space rock may not be a genre everyone is familiar with, but for those who've heard it and have become fans, it's the greatest
thing to happen to music since the synthesizer. The new champions of space rock are Moon Duo, a pair of forward thinking musicians
whose melding of futuristic beats and American rock n' roll has spawned a legion of dedicated fans all clamoring for more
of their fresh sound. Get your Moon Duo concert
tickets today to see what all the hype is about.
Formed in 2009 in San Francisco, Moon Duo is comprised of Erik "Ripley" Johnson and Sanae Yamada. Both have solid musical
backgrounds that came together seamlessly to create Moon Duo. They recorded Mazes, their debut album, in San Francisco and
mixed it in Berlin, and it explores a broader, lighter sound than their previous work but still adheres to their innovative
take on modern music. The band is gearing up to release their second full-length album and kick off their worldwide tour.
Moon Duo subscribes to the musical "less is more" theory, playing droning, repetitive two-chord riffs and sparse, propulsive
drums, fleshed out with blistering electric guitar solos. But make no mistake: This is not sit-down rock n' roll. Moon Duo
injects the same oomph into their performances as they do their music, and audiences can't help but stand up and shout. Having
toured with the likes of Animal Collective and Grizzly Bear, Moon Duo isn't just some garage band couple with a record label.
They're doing things with sound other artists wish they could. Check out StubHub to hear Moon Duo live and see for yourself.
Taking a cue from Bon Iver, Moon Duo's latest album is a product of a long winter in the snowy mountains of Colorado, and
that concentration has led to a groundbreaking collection of tracks. Now that the record is out and receiving plenty of praise,
the band is ready to take to the road and show everyone what they can do. With shows scheduled across the US, there's a chance
for everyone to experience their unique brand of rock. See what many critics have discovered and get Moon Duo rock tickets before they're gone.
