Moving Targets was an American punk/alternative rock band formed in North Shore, Massachusetts in 1981. Formed as a hardcore punk power-trio showcasing the songwriting, guitar work and emotive vocals of Kenny Chambers, the band were an important part of the Boston underground rock scene of the 80s, although they never achieved a significant degree of commercial success.
The line-up most commonly associated with the band featured guitarist/vocalist Kenny Chambers, bassist Pat Leonard, and drummer Pat Brady - whose initial demo recordings formed the basis of debut album Burning In Water in 1986. Chuck Freeman replaced Leonard on bass for the band's second album Brave Noise two years later. By the time of Moving Targets' fourth and final album, 1993's Take This Ride, Chambers was the only original member of the line up; he went on to release several albums as a solo artist.
