Having just capped a packed summer tour with a 2-night run at Music Box at the Borgata in Atlantic City, NJ, moe. has announced that they will celebrate the 25th anniversary of their landmark album 'Tin Cans and Car Tires’ with a special 2x Sky Blue vinyl reissue of the album, to be released on September 8th. In a nod to the past, the vinyl reissue includes not only the original album tracks but also live versions of fan favorites “Stranger Than Fiction,” “Nebraska,” and “Letter Home.” These tracks, recorded live at the Vic Theater in Chicago on 7/17/98 and originally included on a promotion for ‘Tin Cans and Car Tires’ called ‘moe. Sells Out,’ are making their debut on vinyl.
The unique blend of musicality and wit that defines moe. is embodied in 'Tin Cans and Car Tires.' Featuring the timeless track "Queen of the Rodeo,” originally introduced in their 1995 "rock opera" Timmy, the album holds a special place in the band's discography and in the hearts of their fans. The album also marked the recording debut of drummer Vinnie Amico, making it a pivotal moment in the band's history.

moe. recently announced that they will be returning to the Denver area for another two-night run at the Ogden Theatre on Friday, October 20th – Saturday, October 21st. Their first time at the Ogden since May 2019, the performance will cap the band’s previously announced Fall US Tour, which will bring them from Baltimore to Minneapolis and all points in between. The band has been receiving rave reviews throughout the year, following Chuck’s recovery from a stroke and the permanent addition of keyboardist Nate Wilson to the band. Live For Live Music reports, "Recent tours have seen Wilson revitalize the band’s touring catalog as he looks for places to fit himself into the well-established mix, adding long breathy chords that add emotional weight to classics and new covers.” Grateful Web added, “moe. is back and playing better than ever.”
moe. is a one-of-a-kind band that has never been easily categorized. Their sonic adventurousness and tongue-in-cheek humor are distinctly and undeniably their own. Praised by American Songwriter for their “mind-bending musicality,” moe. is treasured for their mesmerizing musical synergy, unfettered showmanship, and smart, resonant songcraft.

moe.’s longevity is no doubt due to the family spirit shared between its members and its engaged fanbase, the, a bond that has been fortified through decades on the road. moe. has performed innumerable headline tours, international festival sets, music-themed cruises, and sold-out shows alongside countless household-name artists. They’ve also promoted and headlined multiple festivals of their own, including snoe.down and moe.down. The band’s vibrant blend of inventive musicality and genre-blurring is on full display on two recent releases, their 12th studio album, 'This Is Not, We Are,' and the 'Not Normal' EP.
