“Over the last few years, Nashville’s Moon Taxi have worked their way up from Bonnaroo buzz-band to something approaching Kings of Leon country, playing a pleasingly cross-bred rock – a little indie, a little proggy, kinda poppy.” – Rolling Stone
“Moon Taxi a jam band – that is, if its instrumental excursions weren’t so concise, carefully thought-out and frequently refined in the years they’ve spent touring.” – NPR
“Spacious rock, that’s begging to fill huge venues.” – MagnetMagazine.com
“Sing-along songs and catchy, jam-worthy interludes.” – Noisey
“Moon Taxi evolves from ‘college project’ to rock stars.” – The Tennessean
“A band that’s moving forward by leaps and bounds.” – PopMatters
Los Angeles, CA – December 8, 2017 – Nashville’s own alt-rock-five-piece band Moon Taxi releases their new song “Good As Gold” off their highly anticipated fifth studio album, Let The Record Play, out January 19, 2018 via RCA Records. The feel-good anthem will have everyone ready to dance for days with its use of upbeat horns and keys. The band also releases a lyric video for the track today.

“Good As Gold,” as well as “Let The Record Play” and single “Two High,” are available as instant grat tracks when fans preorder the upcoming album. Preorder is available at www.ridethemoontaxi.com and all digital retailers HERE.
“Good as Gold is a song about empowerment. It’s about reaching that moment, that place where all your hard work pays off. It’s no coincidence that we wrote it as the Nashville Predators were fighting for the Stanley Cup last season. Team colors inspired the lyric for sure.” – Wes Bailey (keyboardist)
Let The Record Play is a triumphant moment of rock-pop exploration that proves that Moon Taxi is a rare band that can address the temperature of our turbulent times while also providing the euphoric musical escapism we so badly need. Produced and mixed by Spencer Thomson (the band’s guitarist), Let The Record Play is a document of one of the most creative bands to emerge from Nashville’s immensely fertile landscape – and one that has been thriving on the festival scene for years, bringing their electric performances to Coachella, Austin City Limits, Bonnaroo and beyond. Beloved enough in their hometown to sell out two nights at the famed Ryman Auditorium this past October, this LP – and their new relationship with RCA – is certain to catapult them even higher.
The band recently released the official music video for “Two High,” the single off the upcoming album. The video trails the band and their fans throughout the world, backstage and on stage at their electrifying live shows that have earned them millions of fans. The song is a global streaming hit, reaching #1 at Triple A Radio, is being played on Sirius XM’s The Spectrum, Alt Nation and Jam On, and has garnered over 68 million streams on Spotify alone.

Trevor Terndrup (vocals, guitarist), Spencer Thomson (guitarist and producer), Wes Bailey (keyboardist), Tommy Putnam (bassist) and Tyler Ritter (drummer) also just completed the North American and European legs of the “Put ‘Em Up” tour. The band will be ending the year with select shows in the U.S. See below for upcoming shows.
