Kip Moore announced today that he will release UNDERGROUND, a 5-track EP that draws inspiration from his unyielding time out on the road touring, and a personal response to the demand felt from his steadfast fans for new music. Available starting October 28th, Kip co-wrote every track on the EP and audiences across the country will be able to experience the new tracks live this fall on his ME AND MY KIND TOUR. Fans can pre-order the EP, on which multiple tracks were recorded live, starting today here.
UNDERGROUND opens with Moore’s signature unapologetic, but confessional attitude in “All Time Low” which bleeds into the uptempo, yet muscular “My Kind.” Listeners are offered a taste of what they’re missing if they haven’t made it out to a show, with live performances of the anthemic “Midnight Slow Dance” and the reflective, but defiant “Separate Ways.” The EP culminates in the infectiously longing track “My Baby’s Gone,” showcasing Moore in his unfiltered element.
“The problem I often face is leaving behind some songs, because I never stop writing,” said Moore. “I write so many that some never see the light of day. I’ve been working on a full record, which looks to be coming out in late spring, but everywhere we go the fans keep asking for the recordings of these underground songs that they’ve been hearing for the last few years. They’re a passionate fan base so I decided to ask my label if I could record these songs live and give them the raw recordings. These songs are completely separate from the new record I’ve been making, I simply made this EP for the true fans.”

UNDERGROUND follows the release of Moore’s critically acclaimed sophomore album WILD ONES, as well as his debut album UP ALL NIGHT which was certified GOLD by the RIAA and spawned three No. One hit singles including GOLD certified “Beer Money,” PLATINUM certified “Hey Pretty Girl,” and the DOUBLE PLATINUM breakout hit “Somethin’ ‘Bout A Truck.” A constant road warrior, Moore’s headlining ME AND MY KIND TOUR follows a characteristically relentless touring schedule, that kicked off at the beginning of the year with a sold-out tour in the US and Canada, a stint in Australia for the first time and headlining shows in The UK and Ireland that, due to demand, led to bigger venues being scheduled as well as closing out the run with a sold-out date in London, UK.

Kip’s Me and My Kind Tour, also featuring Jon Pardi, makes a stop in Oshawa, Canada Saturday night (October 15th).
Kip Moore (Underground message to fans) OC: …so much. :31
“You guys have stuck with me through thick and thin, and a lot of you guys know that I have a new record coming out in the Spring, but I didn’t want you to wait that long, so we kind of recorded a live underground EP of five songs of a lot of the songs that you guys have known for a while, your underground favorites. It comes out October 28th, but you can preorder it today. I just want to do something special for y’all for always sticking with us and showing up to the shows and knowing all the songs. We appreciate y’all so much.”
Kip Moore (My Kind) OC: …about y’all. :24
“The studio track, ‘My Kind,’ I wrote this about you guys. I feel like our fan base is the blue collar fan base that knows what it’s like to work hard, 5, 6 days a week and spend their hard-earned money on what they like to do and coming to the shows. I feel like I’m one of you guys, we’re are one of you guys, and I wanted to write a song about us and how I feel about y’all.”
