Walk the Moon plays at LouFest in September.

Using an anagram made up of members’ Facebook profile pictures, Congress of the South 40 unofficially announced late Sunday night that Walk the Moon will headline WUStock 2014.

CS40 plans to formally announce the headliner for its annual concert—which will be held on Saturday, March 29—early this week. CS40 Exec Board members declined to confirm Walk the Moon’s selection.

Walk the Moon is a Cincinnati-based indie pop band most famous for the singles “Anna Sun” and “Tightrope” off the band’s 2012 self-titled album. The quartet, which formed in 2008, is known for music that combines indie rock with elements of dance and new-wave music.

The band was one of the options for WUStock listed on CS40’s artist poll last fall, alongside other possible artists such as Neon Trees.

Walk the Moon also performed in St. Louis at LouFest last September. The band puts on particularly high-energy shows, marked by the colorful face paint that the group and its fans are known to wear during performances.
