We Shot the Moon

We Shot the Moon, formerly known as The Honor Roll, is a band from San Diego, California featuring Jonathan Jones the singer of Waking Ashland, and originally, Dan Koch, and Joe Greenetz both from the band Sherwood.


The band was formed when Jonathan Jones' band, Waking Ashland, broke up. On July 21, 2007, the band put up 4 demos on their MySpace page, In August 2007, they changed their name from The Honor Roll to We Shot the Moon and moved the songs to a new MySpace page, whose title reflected the new band name; they have kept the old MySpace page online but have replaced most of the content with an image linking to their new page.

Their first ever show as a band was a benefit concert called Water For Choche, which helped bring water to people in Choche Ethiopia. It was held on September 15 2007 at Point Loma Nazerene University. Since then only two of the members have stayed constant: Trevor Faris (drums) and Jonathan Jones (lead vocals and piano.)

They entered the studio on August 22, 2007, to record a full-length album. The title of the LP is Fear And Love. They embarked on a U.S. Tour at the end of September and it went through mid November. They then followed up with a tour in Japan.

Jason De La Torre became an official guitarist in the band in July 2008.

In August 2008, it was announced that original lead guitarist Paul Wheatley had left the band for personal reasons. His role on the current tour will be temporarily filled by Nate Miller.
