We’re busting your punk cherry this month! We’ve never had a punk band featured as our ReverbNation “Artist of the Month” before…so crank the speakers up and enjoy! MOOVALYA is a three-piece melodic punk band hailing from Phoenix, AZ. Despite being the new guys in town, Moovalya busted down the doors of the Phoenix music scene in 2008. Fueled by the sounds of the 90's skate, “epi/fat” punk rock heyday, they quickly released their debut album through their own independent label DAGGER SIGHT RECORDS, and began playing shows as much as possible, even attaining airplay. Since then, they've played several local festivals and fundraisers, scored a spot on VANS WARPED TOUR, and released a full-length in 2012. In 2013, Moovalya lined up their first West Coast tour, followed by a tour to the east and into Canada for “Envol et Macadam” Festival. In 2016, the band completed their 3rd tourm taking the band back up to Canada and down the west coast in support of their latest 7" vinyl release, “Kings”. Moovalya is currently writing music for their next record. If it’s anything close to the past efforts, punk fans are in for a treat! MOOVALYA • MUSIC VIDEO • “TO THE THRONE”
