Out now: Bob Moses acoustic EP 'Unplugged'

Earlier this year, I saw the band do an amazing set at Coachella 2 and then interviewed Tom (see elsewhere on this blog). Now there's some cool news about a new EP...

Bob Moses’ Jimmy Vallance and Tom Howie have just released the acoustic EP Unplugged. It finds the musicians performing acoustic versions of their Battle Lines singles “Heaven Only Knows,” “Back Down” and “Nothing But You,” plus a studio recording of Duran Duran’s "Save a Prayer" which they performed for numerous U.S. alternative radio sessions over the course of this past year.

The EP acts as a bookend to the Battle Lines album campaign which began back in August 2018 and also a continuation of the band sharing studio recordings of acoustic versions of their music such as All in All’s "Hands to Hold (acoustic)” and Days Gone By (Never Enough Edition)’s "Before I Fall (acoustic).”

Alongside the four-track EP, the duo has also made available live performance videos for all its tracks.

Bob Moses’ 2018 album Battle Lines spawned the hit single “Back Down,” led to a performance on Ellen, was named one of Billboard’s Best Electronic Albums of 2018 and culminated in a sold out show at the Palladium in their adopted hometown of Los Angeles.

This past year included dates at major festivals such as Coachella, Governor’s Ball, Outside Lands and Osheaga, followed by a national tour supporting Phantogram, a sold-out headline show at Pier 17 in NYC and most recently supporting Rufus Du Sol at their sold-out shows at the legendary Red Rocks Amphitheater in Colorado and LA State Historic Park show in Los Angeles. They also released Battle Lines [Remixed], with remixes from Battle Lines from Hayden James, Jamie Jones and Cassian among others.

Next, fans can find Bob Moses closing out 2019 with a club show at Schimanski in New York City and then aboard the FriendShip music cruise in the Caribbean in January, among other dates found below.
