Festival favorite, Moon Taxi released their fourth studio album, Daybreaker in October 2015, new material that was produced by Jacquire King (Kings of Leon, Modest Mouse, Tom Waits, James Bay). The band has built a reputation over the years as an energetic and entertaining live band as they’ve spent countless hours on the road over the last ten years with appearances in 2015 performing at Bonnaroo, Governor’s Ball, Wakarusa, Houston Free Press, Lollapalooza and Austin City Limits. “To me it’s an album about facing the unknown, starting something new and realizing that the relationships you have with other people are what get you through life,” notes guitarist Spencer Thomson. Keyboardist, Wes Bailey stated, “when we release a new album, we enter a new chapter in our story; an experience we share with our fans. When the day breaks and the sun rises, changes happen and the world we know illuminates. That’s the same kind of effect we hope to achieve when we share new music.”
B-Sides met up with guitarist Spencer Thomson and bassist Tommy Putnam to talk about Daybreaker, their experience performing a full set of songs from Rage Against The Machine at Hangout Festival in 2014, bowling and more.
