Walk The Moon Frontman: "Exploring Sexuality"

posted by Wendy Rollins -

Things were cut short for Walk The Moon in 2016. Their front man Nicholas Petricca made the decision that he needed to be home with family, as his father was in the final stages of Alzheimer's. They cancelled their tour and it has been quiet ever since.

So where have they been? And what about this new album? 

Petricca spoke with EW:

My dad had Alzheimer’s, and I realized how much my family needed me. That was a really intense moment for us. After five years on the road, 300 days a year, and then suddenly this big void? It brought up stuff within the band: I was [then] dealing with the death of my father, and meanwhile, Kevin [Ray] was getting married and my love life was upside down. I was exploring my spirituality and my sexuality. Coming back together, we had to navigate a lot of that stuff.

This album is based around looking into the unknown and realizing that it could all go to s— or it could be the best thing in your life. This record, even more than the last one, is really raw lyrically, while the sound seems more epic. We’re reaching higher and further with each sound, but the lyrics are closer to the heart.
