Background:

Led by former Waking Ashland front man Jonathan Jones on vocals and piano, We Shot the Moon (originally called the Honor Roll) is also made up of Trevor Faris (drums), Adam Lovell (bass), and Jason De La Torre (guitar). The band specializes in “quirky rock,” according to Jones, evincing shades of Jack’s Mannequin, Coldplay, Switchfoot, Muse, and Weezer.

The band’s debut album Fear and Love was released in 2008. In 2009, they released A Silver Lining, an 11-track disc produced by Mike Green (Paramore, the Matches) on Minneapolis-based Afternoon Records.
