Walk The Moon visited the stage of NBC's "The Voice" on Tuesday to perform their current single, "Shut Up and Dance," as the singing competition continues to roll out the musical guests ahead of its May 19 finale. If you missed their performance, you can watch it by using the media player included with this article.
"Shut Up and Dance" is Walk The Moon's biggest hit since the indie rock band was formed in 2008. It's the lead single from their second studio album, Talking Is Hard, and so far it's appeared on more than 20 charts around the world, including seven in the United States.
The song topped Billboard's Hot Rock Songs Chart, Rock Airplay Chart, and Adult Top 40 Chart, while also reaching number five on the overall Billboard Hot 100 singles chart, number seven on the Mainstream Top 40 Chart, number 13 on the Adult Contemporary Chart, and number 27 on the Dance/Mix Show Airplay Chart.
The track has also scored on five charts in Canada (where its highest position is number five on the Hot AC Chart), two in the Netherlands, and one in Australia, Austria, Belgium, the Czech Republic, Ireland, New Zealand, Slovakia and Sweden.
It has five certifications for sales accomplishments, including a Platinum designation by the RIAA for selling over a million copies, as well as going Platinum in Canada and Gold in Australia, New Zealand and Sweden.
Naturally, the success of the single has boosted the album on which it appears. Talking Is Hard has reached the top 15 on five different Billboard sales charts, including number 15 on the overall Billboard 200.
If you liked what you heard Tuesday, you'll have to wait a while before you can see Walk The Moon live. Their next appearance is at the KJEE Summer Roundup in Santa Barbara, California on May 17, and that event is already sold out. The band then embarks on a European tour from May 20 through 23, before landing back in the United States in early June. They'll play the Bunbury Music Festival in their hometown of Cincinnati, Ohio on June 5. You can view all their announced shows at the tour page on their website.
