The Mood Kings, from Lumberton/Charlotte, NC, are celebrating the release of their debut album “The Wonder of It All” with a series of album-release concerts, and a charitable partnership with the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.
The official album release date is June 15, but the band’s preorder campaign, running now through June 30 on PledgeMusic.com, allows fans to sample songs, get updates, and watch the buildup to their “3 Shows in 3 Cities in 3 Nights” event in July. The band will play album release shows in Boone, Lumberton, and Charlotte on July 13, 14, and 15.
All three members grew up in Lumberton and played in popular local bands. Schwarze has since moved to Boone and Townsend to Charlotte. Ospina still lives in Lumberton. They alternate traveling to cities for rehearsals and other band business.
