Mister Heavenly dabbled in love and affection on their first record, 2011's Out of Love. This time, however, Ryan Kattner, Nicholas Thorburn and Joe Plummer are in a scrappy mood as they embrace a tougher sound on the band's new album, Boxing the Moonlight. Kattner and Thorburn started Mister Heavenly in 2010 as a chance to collaborate for the sheer fun of it, and they soon invited Plummer to join them. After releasing Out of Love in 2011, the band started work on their second album, snatching a few days at a time whenever their cluttered schedules allowed.
The trio has also shared the album's opener track, "Beat Down,"" along with its lyric video.
