Silverada (Formerly Mike and the Moonpies) Releases “Stay By My Side” From Self-Titled Album Out June 28

Today, celebrated band Silverada (formerly known as Mike and the Moonpies) release “Stay By My Side,” the latest single from their upcoming self-titled album, out June 28. Silverada isn’t just another album for Silverada; it’s a defining moment in their career.  The recording speaks volumes about the transformation they’ve undergone, leveling up their songwriting and honing their distinctive sound.

Known as long-time road warriors, Silverada recorded “Stay By My Side” while touring across the American Southeast, capturing it in a single take at Capricorn Sound Studios in Macon, Georgia. Listen to the track via DSPs HERE and watch their performance of “Stay By My Side” on the Tomboy Sessions HERE.

Mike and the Moonpies’ journey from Austin honky-tonks to global stages like Abbey Road Studios and the Grand Ole Opry is a testament to their talent and dedication. With that kind of success came the desire to push boundaries and evolve creatively. Renaming the band Silverada is a bold move, signaling to their fans and the industry that they’re entering a new chapter. With their brand of timeless twang mixed with modern-day dynamics, Silverada offers poignant, character-driven songwriting alongside booming swells of pedal steel, country shuffles and hard-charging rock & roll tempos, with a willingness to break old rules and open new doors.

Silverada kicks off their Silverada Roadshow tour on May 10 and will celebrate the album release in Nashville at The Ryman Auditorium on July 5th. A list of tour dates is below and, on their website HERE.

“We spent the first part of our career figuring out who we are and what we’re good at,” says vocalist and songwriter Mike Harmeier. “Now we want to evolve not only the sound of the band, but the dynamic of the live show, too. We’re all lifers here. We’re in this for the long haul. Silverada is us setting the stage for the next leg of the journey.”
