We Shot The Moon

Band Rock Pop



The best kept secret in music


This band has no press


Still working on that hot first release.



WE SHOT THE MOON--led by former Waking Ashland frontman JONATHAN JONES--is a piano-heavy indie rock four-piece from San Diego, CA. They have released 2 full length albums and have completed 10+ national tours since their formation in 2008.

WE SHOT THE MOON, have been said to possess shades of Jack’s Mannequin, Coldplay, Switchfoot, Muse, and Weezer. According to JONES, the band specializes in “quirky rock” that’s layered, thick, and replete with ambient noise, and it’s for that reason “we fall through the cracks, which I think, ultimately, is a good thing. We don’t fit in to the the super-indie hipster crowd. We’re not gimmicky--we’re real”.

The band has played tour dates with acts such as: The Fray, Jacks Mannequin, Augustana, Plain White Ts, OneRepublic, Secondhand Serenade, 3OH!3, All Time Low, Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, Relient K, Warped Tour, etc

- The band released a brand new full length album August 2012.
- Featured on TV Shows: One Tree Hill, The Real World, The Hills, Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Teen Mom, ESPNs Sportscenter, American Idol, as well as numerous other programs on ABC, MTV, VH1, NBC, E!, and Fox
- Featured in Alternative Press, Spin, HM, CMJ and other magazines.
- While the band normally performs as a full 4 piece rock band, they can and have frequently stripped down their set to play acoustic coffee shop events.
