MOVE ON, BE STRONG

w/ Set The Score
+ Coastline

Move On Be Strong started 2014 with the release of their debut EP ‘Midnight’ in March, and are going to close it out by hitting The Curtin's stage, just days before releasing the first taste of their sophomore EP.

Throughout the year they continued to build their popularity with many support shows around the country, playing bigger venues and larger crowds than ever before including support shows with Short Stack and Kids In Glass Houses. The band also held a meet and greet and acoustic show in Melbourne, which by their surprise brought an overwhelming amount of people to see them. With the confidence from this and their past shows, the band decided to start writing their second EP.

The past two months, the boys have kept quiet about writing and releasing their second EP, which has just been announced. No official date confirmed as of yet. The highly anticipated first single ‘I Want’ is set to be released on the 30th of November.
