A Rocket To The Moon Unveils "WILD & FREE"; Eagerly Awaited Second Album Recorded in Nashville With Superstar Producer Mark Bright; Collection Heralded by New Single, "Ever Enough"; "WILD & FREE" Arrives at Last on March 26th

NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwire) -- 02/04/13 -- Fueled By Ramen recording group A Rocket To The Moon has announced the release of their eagerly awaited sophomore album. "WILD & FREE" arrives everywhere on March 26th.

Recorded in Nashville by famed producer Mark Bright (Rascal Flatts, Carrie Underwood, Reba McEntire), "WILD & FREE" is heralded by the uplifting new single, "Ever Enough." The track can be heard now via audio stream at ARTTM's official YouTube channel, located at www.youtube.com/arttmband, while its companion video will have its premiere later this month.

"WILD & FREE" will be made available for pre-order on February 19th via the band's own store.arockettothemoon.net, as well as the official Fueled By Ramen webstore, store.fueledbyramen.com. A variety of bundles will be on offer, including such limited edition extras as a "Second Chance" t-shirt, a "Wild Wings" bandana, and a "Wild & Free" patch. All packages include a CD copy of "WILD & FREE" and an instant MP3 download of "Ever Enough."

"We know it's been a long three and a half years," said A Rocket To The Moon in a joint statement. "We've felt it too. But now we feel something new and we hope you feel it too. It's that feeling knowing something good is coming your way, something you can enjoy, love, and share with your friends. When you hear these songs, we hope you'll play them as loud as you can, and scream the words out your windows at the top of your lungs. We hope they'll mean as much to you as they do to us."

"WILD & FREE" follows 2012's "THAT OLD FEELING," a 4-song EP featuring a number of the album's finest moments, including the breezy hit single, "Whole Lotta You." "THAT OLD FEELING" -- which is available now on the iTunes Store -- earned critical praise from a number of national publications. American Songwriter hailed the EP's "First Kiss" as a "heart-on-your-sleeve love song," while Paste applauded A Rocket To The Moon's "songs of feel-good country rock led by the sweet-sounding vocals of frontman Nick Santino."

"WILD & FREE" sees A Rocket To The Moon continuing to grow their ingenious and distinctive blend of country, rock, folk, and pop. Songs like "Another Set of Wings" and the raucous title track see ARTTM frontman Nick Santino teaming with some of Nashville's top songwriters, known for their collaborations with such superstars as Taylor Swift, Sugarland, Rascal Flatts, and Tim McGraw, to name a few. In addition, A Rocket To The Moon is joined in studio by an array of very special guests, including Stephen Barker Liles (of chart-topping country duo, Love and Theft), Elizabeth Huett (known for her longtime work with Taylor Swift), and Josh Jenkins (of Top 40 rockers, Green River Ordinance).

A Rocket To The Moon first tapped into its idiosyncratic country-tinged approach on 2010's "THE RAINY DAY SESSIONS." The 5-track EP features new versions of songs originally found on the band's 2009 debut album, "ON YOUR SIDE," recorded with female bluegrass group Larkin Poe and award-winning producer Dan Hannon (Manchester Orchestra). Highlighted by a creative cover of Beyoncé's classic "Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It)," "THE RAINY DAY SESSIONS" also featured the hit single, "Like We Used To." Fueled by rotation at MTV Hits and mtvU -- as well as featured play on two of MTV's biggest hit shows, Teen Mom and Jersey Shore -- the track proved ARTTM's popular breakthrough, with total sales now approaching 300,000. What's more, "Like We Used To" was an undeniable online sensation, drawing over 8 million individual video streams at Fueled By Ramen's official YouTube channel, www.youtube.com/user/FueledByRamen.

A Rocket To The Moon is: Nick Santino - vocals/guitar, Justin Richards - guitar, Eric Halvorsen - bass, Andrew Cook - drums.
