In a press release, the band’s bassist, Derhak, offered, “We are thrilled to announce that our long-time friend, keyboardist Nate Wilson will be joining moe. full-time moving forward.” He continued by adding some context, “Former founding member of both Percy Hill, and Assembly of Dust (and current band leader for Ghosts Of Jupiter), Nate has been part of our lineup since our first shows without Chuck Garvey. He has since proven himself a valued contributor to our sound, and now with Chuck back in the groove, he compliments our overall style. His sense of humor and overall breadth of musical knowledge is a welcome addition.”
