Man of Moon are a two piece psychedelic rock band formed in Edinburgh, Scotland.
Chris Bainbridge and Michael Reid met in college in 2014 when they formed the band and starting writing and gigging almost instantly after first jamming together in class which led to them dropping out of college to focus completely on the music.
In 2015 they released first single ‘The Road’ on Manchester label Melodic Records which The New York Times said was ‘the best debut single from a UK band since ’Ceremony’ by New Order’. This gave the band a huge step up in the industry and they started getting impressive support slots with bands such as The Phantom Band, We Were Promised Jetpacks, Frightened Rabbit and more.
In 2016 the band released their first EP ‘Medicine’ on Melodic Records which saw the band embarking on their first UK tour up and down the country and playing major festivals such as T in the Park, Belladrum Tartan Heart Festival and The Great Escape Festival.
In 2018 the band went on tour with one of their favourite bands Django Django, the band’s biggest tour to date consisting of 20+ shows all over Europe and the UK playing to huge crowds every night.
2019 is the year that Man of Moon have been building up to. The band released EP ‘Chemicals’ they are currently on tour with The Twilight Sad and they have recorded their debut album set for release in 2020!
