BOB MOSES REVEALS “DAYS GONE BY (NEVER ENOUGH EDITION)” TO BE RELEASED WORLDWIDE ON AUGUST 19 VIA DOMINO + NORTH AMERICAN TOUR DATES + DEBUTS MINI-DOCUMENTARY
Bob Moses – the Vancouver-bred, New York City-residing dance/rock act comprised of Jimmy Vallance and Tom Howie – revealed a 2016 edition of their debut album “Days Gone By,” set for a release on August 19th. On the impressive “Days Gone By (Never Enough Edition),” the duo weave a rich spectrum of sensation over the course of ten album tracks. The album also comes with two vinyl bonus tracks, an acoustic version of “Before I Fall”, 3 live album track versions and an impressive selection of remixes from some of dance music’s biggest names, including A-Trak, Joris Voorn, RAC and Tale Of Us. The band have also launched “Days Gone By – A Bob Moses Story”, a charmingly insightful mini-documentary filmed in and around their recent trip to Southern California and Mexico.
The music of duo Bob Moses first found a home on the Brooklyn-based tastemaker label of Francis Harris and Anthony Collins’ Scissor & Thread back in 2012, before signing to Domino in 2014. Since then, the NYC-based Canadian act have soared to prominence and struck gold on both sides of the Atlantic – winning over the hearts of the mainstream and the underground alike, as evidenced by a recent appearance on ELLEN and an invitation from Pete Tong to record their debut Essential Mix on BBC Radio 1. Widely touted as NYC’s leading break out dance/rock act, Bob Moses are proof that sultry deep house and pop-savvy songwriting don’t have to be mutually exclusive.
Meshing guitar licks, a moody smolder and a dash of dance-floor ambience, the duo’s sound translates seamlessly to the live performance realm, bringing authenticity to both appease genre purists, and the lyrical depth to draw in audiences away from the club. They’ve capitalized on this alchemy, with the duo playing major tents at LA’s Coachella festival and Governor’s Ball, whilst also selling out shows at London’s 1000 capacity venue, Oval Space. This summer and fall will see the band continue to take their live show on the road, with upcoming appearances at Lollapalooza, Austin City Limits, HARD Summer, and Voodoo Experience Music Festival. All US tour dates included below.
“We were never happy just making music on guitars,” says Tom Howie.“Our live show combines what a DJ does with a rock band,” Vallance adds. “Everything flows together in a continuous mix for the dance floor, but it’s all our own original music, with live vocals and guitar. Then again, we came out of a scene that was trying to change what dance music is – that pushed beyond the expected sonic spectrum.”
