moe. Signs With Sugar Hill Records, Releasing New Album – What Happened to the La Las

moe. has signed with Sugar Hill Records, the band’s first label sojourn in nearly a decade to release their new album What Happened to the La Las on Jan 24th. The group also chose to work with an outside producer for the first time since 1998’s Tin Cans & Car Tires, with John Travis (Kid Rock, Social Distortion, No Doubt) getting the call.

"For most of our career we’ve done everything on our own in a very cottage industry, home-y kind of way," notes Chuck Garvey.
Continues Garvey, "With most of our recordings, we’ve gotten the equipment together, we’ve paid for everything ourselves, we’ve produced it ourselves and we’ve had complete control over it. For this album we actually made the leap of putting ourselves in someone else’s hands to help us come out with something different."

 of compact melodies, each textured by moe.’s signature rock riffs and flourishes, and backed by a roller coaster ride of pulsing drums. It’s that pure moe. sound which the band’s ardent fans — affectionately dubbed moe.rons — have come to love over the band’s decades of industrious touring.
