Over the course of more than 15 years, the rootsy jam band moe. has continually developed and expanded its unique blend of pop hooks and experimental improvisation. Known for an explosive and unpredictable live show, the band maintains an endless touring schedule and a loyal fan base.

Following the release of 2003's Wormwood, moe. began recording The Conch, which came out early this year. Incorporating the sounds of a live audience into its music, the disc incorporates samples from two 2005 shows played in Maine.
