Walk the Moon will be returning to the road later this month, but before they do, they just gave fans a brand new song to hold them over until then. On Friday (Jan. 11), the Ohio-founded band unleashed their first new song in over a year. Titled “Timebomb,” the new tune finds the four-piece honing in on the type of dancey-rock music that has become synonymous with their name.
Listen to “Timebomb” above.
“Timebomb” comes more than a year after the release of their fourth studio album, What If Nothing. The album produced a total of five singles including “One Foot,” “Headphones,” “Surrender,” “Kamikaze,” and “Tiger Teeth” which was given the music video treatment back in October.
Around the same time, the quartet announced plans to embark on massive North American tour during the first couple of months of 2019. Walk the Moon’s upcoming excursion will begin with a two-night engagement (Jan. 23 and 24) at the Mercury Ballroom in Louisville. After being on the road for about a month, the trek will conclude on Feb. 17 at the Mill & Mine in Knoxville.
In addition to their headlining tour, the group will open for Muse during two of their Simulation Theory tour stops; April 8 at Madison Square Gardens in New York and April 12 at the United Center in Chicago. Following those shows, Walk the Moon will appear at two summertime music festivals; Alabama’s Hangout Festival during the weekend of May 17-19 and Bonnaroo on June 16.

While taking a little bit of a break during the holiday season, the guys began recording a series of covers. Dubbed the “What If Covers,” the guys have given their own spin to songs such as “Time to Pretend” by MGMT, “Time After Time” by Cyndi Lauper, and “Tubthumpin” by Chumbawumba. All their covers can be found on their Instagram account.
