Indie rockers Half Moon Run announce Calgary tour date

Sep 27 2019, 11:15 am

Indie-rock band Half Moon Run is coming to Calgary’s MacEwan Hall this upcoming January as part of their A Blemish in the Great Light Tour, which will take them across the globe.

The tour is taking the Montreal-based rockers across Canada, the United States, and to Europe with stops in major cities including Prague, Barcelona, and Paris.

The band, which consists of members Conner Molander, Dylan Phillips, Devon Portielje, and Isaac Symonds, haven’t slowed down since their first album Dark Eyes was released in 2012, which earned them recognition from The Rolling Stones, who called them “a band to watch.”

After the record went platinum in Canada, Half Moon Run followed up their success with 2015’s Sun Leads Me On. They also received a JUNO nomination for Breakthrough Group of the Year in 2016.

Half Moon Run’s complex brand of alt-folk, alt-rock, psychedelic indie, has built the band a cult following worldwide. The band members also have the ability to play a multitude of instruments — between them, they can incorporate percussion, piano, keyboard, guitar, synth, bass, mandolin, harmonica, and more.

Fans are anticipating the November 1 release of their third album, A Blemish in the Great Light. Their accompanying tour is expected to sell out across the country — and potentially, the world.

Tickets to Half Moon Run’s all-ages Calgary show are on sale now via Eventbrite.
