With several raucous sold out tours and a triumphant stint at SXSW, The Moss continue their euphoric path of destruction with the announcement of their new 2023 headlining tour dates. The band will play Bonnaroo, ACL Music Festival and Summerfest as well as making stops in Los Angeles, Chicago, DC, Philadelphia, Nashville and their first ever New York City show which sold out months in advance. Sure to bring crowds to their feet, the band is thrilled to share stages with The Backseat Lovers, Peach Pit, Declan McKenna and White Reaper.
EP title track “Insomnia” has become a breakout single for the band following major support from key Alternative radio outlets and peaking at #13* on the Alternative Radio Chart. Hailed for bringing their youthful exuberance and alternative-rock swagger to the studio and the stage and earning acclaim spanning Under The Radar, The Alternative, LADYGUNN, Earmilk, Atwood & Ones To Watch, the band’s unique blend of indie surf-pop, grunge-rock and ’60s-blues quickly caught on as the band actively curated a community of inclusivity and environmentalism.
Originating on the shores of Oahu as teenage buddies, Tyke James (vocals/guitar) and Addison Sharp (guitar) traded in beaches for the Great Salt Lake joining forces with Willie Fowler (drums) Caiden Jackson (bass) to form The Moss. The band’s blazing success has landed them on a number of festivals this past year including Life Is Beautiful and The Festival at Sandpoint as well as landing on Pandora’s Artists to Watch in 2023.
The band’s latest EP release, Insomnia, is out now on S-Curve / Hollywood Records.
