“Half Moon Run – potentially one of the most important bands debuting an album this year. It’s progressive without being pretentious” -Ben Lovett from Mumford & Sons in NME, Oct 3 2012
All three band members sing and play multiple instruments, with Devon Portielje singing lead and Conner Molander and Dylan Phillips covering everything else.
Half Moon Run supported Metric on their Fall tour of the US and are currently opening for (and drinking absinthe with) Patrick Watson in Europe. The road life continues with Canadian and US dates for November and December, and the band will end off the year at the Woodford Folk Festival in Australia.
Debut album “Dark Eyes” was released in Canada this year and will see an international release in early 2013.
