Ohio four-piece Walk the Moon (aka the ‘Shut Up and Dance’ people) will team up with local stars The Griswolds to take Australia by storm next year.

Walk the Moon exploded internationally with that song earlier this year, and since then, they’ve played for crowds at Bonnaroo and Lollapalooza festivals with Pink, Panic! At The Disco and Fun., and dazzled late night TV staples like Letterman, Fallon and Conan.

Sydneysiders The Griswolds will join them on stage in January, and hit the road with Walk the Moon for their North American tour in March, flaunting their debut record Be Impressed.

Walk the Moon will show off ‘Shut Up and Dance’ and infectious second single ‘Different Colors’ from their album Talking Is Hard across Aussie capitals in the new year.

Tickets go on sale Wednesday 16 September at 10am.
