(UK) Ahead of the release of their second album ‘Sing It All Away’ – out 15th June – Walk Off The Earth today announce an October UK tour, including their biggest London headline show to date. Tickets for the tour go on sale at 9am on Friday 15th May and are available here .
The viral hit-makers have also released the lyric video – watch here – for ‘Home We’ll Go’ which is available as an instant download to customers who pre-order ‘Sing It All Away’.
Walk Off The Earth have extended the boundaries of what a 21st century band can bring to pop music and pop culture, and their new album, full of boundless musical surprises cements this. “We want to give all the inspiration we received back to the rest of the world with this album,” says Sarah.
The new album is the follow-up to their 2013 debut, R.E.V.O., which marked them as an inventive force to be reckoned with, hitting the Billboard Top Albums chart, launching the #1 Triple A single “Red Hands,” and selling out two headline tours worldwide.
Walk Off The Earth features multi-instrumentalists Gianni Luminati, Marshall, and Sarah Blackwood on vocals, Taylor on keyboards, and Joel Cassady on drums. The platinum Canadian quintet had already established a significant global following when their cover of Gotye’s “Somebody I Used To Know,” ignited the blogosphere, eventually garnering 164 million views, and landing the band a recording contract with Columbia Records. To date, they’ve accumulated almost half billion cumulative views and more than 2 million subscribers. Most notably, however, they are one of the few artists to continually and successfully find success on both DIY online platforms and throughout the traditional music marketplace.
