It was exactly a year ago that I first went out with Grouplove, so I decided to finally post a photo journal from my time with them on the Honda Civic Tour! It was a pleasure to be around this group of people and see the relentless energy they have on stage, and passion they have for their art and fans. It was also my first time to have other girls around on tour! This post covers the Kansas City and Dallas shows (and a day off field trip to see the KC Royals).

ALSO Hannah and Christian just had a baby!! Go tell them congrats!

These guys having been touring their latest album, Talking Is Hard, during most of 2015 so far, and I’ve had the pleasure of traveling with them to document shows and life on the road. This is the first of a multi-part tour photo journal, starting with Spring dates in April of this year. These photos cover their sold out shows in Boston at HOB and Philly at TLA. Main support, The Griswolds, make a few appearances as well. If you haven’t already, you should do yourself the favor of seeing Walk the Moon live!

There will be a follow-up blog post with photos from NYC and DC. And I’ll be doing more of a live tour journal while I’m out with them next week, so check back! Follow me on social media for daily BTS updates: @annaleemedia.

They’re doing amazing things!

Valise are very talented recent friends from right here in the South. These guys hosted an incredibly successful release show at Three Links in Deep Ellum for their debut full-length Young Bloomer, right before they headed out on tour with Copeland. We met up early for some promo shots.
