"Love in the Dark"
Moonlight Bride is a noise-pop outfit born in the industrial outskirts of Chattanooga, Tennessee. The band consists of four members: Justin Giles, Matt Livingston, Justin Grasham, and Dave Maki. After relentless writing, reinvention, and touring, the band has developed a cult following as well as many critical accolades.
The band began crafting their sound in the summer of 2007, spawning two self-recorded EPʼs. Quickly becoming hometown favorites, word spread and the band began attaining buzz throughout the Southeast. In late 2008, guitarist Justin Grasham joined, and with a newfound vigor the band retreated to an abandoned factory, shaping what would become their debut album, Myths. Written in just over a week through a series of intense writing sessions, the four members would convene around 7 PM, often finding themselves leaving well after six in the morning. These sessions marked an immense change in the band’s sound, abandoning the piecemeal recording style and metaphorical narrative for a more abstract sound and genuine perspective. The album was recorded in two weeks in May 2009, primarily at As Elyzum studios, while supplementary parts were captured in various locations, including a derelict cabin and Wilcox’s apartment.
