Half Moon Run released their successful debut record Dark Eyes over 2 years ago on March 27th, 2012. Fans have been patiently awaiting new material for quite some time and the band has finally shed some light on the situation.
Here’s what ‘HMR’ posted via their Facebook page:
this summer we decided to only book a few festival shows to allow ourselves the time to really focus on writing the next album, and it’s been invigorating to see it start to take shape…in some ways it feels like a lifetime ago that we were biking from our kitchen jobs to our tiny jamspace in the mile end to write the songs that eventually ended up on dark eyes. a lot has changed, and we’re determined to prove to you as well as to ourselves, that the best is yet to come. we’re going to be trying out some of the new songs at the upcoming festival shows and after that we’ll be disappearing from the live scene for a short time while we push the album into its final stages. the intersection of business and art is difficult to navigate and so we aren’t able to provide a specific timeline to you at this point, but we’ll do our best to keep you posted. thanks so much for all your support and patience. these are exciting times.
