About Moonlight Towers

Proclaimed “amazing” by Performing Songwriter for creating what the Chicago Reader calls “perfectly molded power-pop,” Moonlight Towers is “Austin’s favorite three-minute heroes” according to the Austin American-Statesman and the renowned music city’s “finest power pop export” (Pop Culture Press).

Moonlight Towers is celebrating the recent release of its third album Day Is The New Night, out now on Austin’s Chicken Ranch label, with a hometown Austin show at famed venue, Antone’s on April 30th.  The band will then be heading out on a two-week tour that will take it around the Eastern half of the US with shows in Chicago, New York and down south to Mississippi and Alabama.

Moonlight Towers (taking its name from the tall vintage streetlights that illuminated Austin’s nights of yore) is a genuine band that does what comes naturally: writing, recording and playing real rock n’ roll (with a hearty pop kick!) It’s really that simple.

On Day Is The New Night, the band’s third long-player, the foursome delivers its finest and richest offering yet. Such superlatives become viscerally tangible the moment the band steamrolls into “Heat Lightning,” (MP3) the disc’s aptly named lead track. The timeless potency of two mighty guitars and muscular bass and drums bring the urgency, buoying vocals that alternately sear and soar.

Moonlight Towers is available for interviews.  Contact Josh Bloom at Fanatic for more information.
