Sophisticated indie-pop rock band Titanmoon has just returned from a tour/goodwill mission to Dubai, Japan, and Pakistan. The Fort Worth group will be opening an orphanage/school in Karachi, Pakistan, in 2010, with help from Pakistani benefactors. “Our intent in going there was to encourage Pakistanis to help Pakistanis in need,” the band said. “This will definitely be a culmination of those efforts.”

Multiple bombings in Pakistan kept the band on edge. Some performances had to be canceled to ensure the musicians’ safety. However, the band plans on returning to Pakistan, both to perform and monitor the progress of the orphanage/school.


On Tuesday, Titanmoon frontman Tyler Casey will present a gift from Fort Worth’s Japanese sister city, Nagaoka, to Fort Worth City Council.

The band is currently recording an album-length follow-up to 2008’s marvelous Film Black.
