Walk Off The Earth

Biography

Walk Off The Earth, the chart-topping viral hit-makers who have extended the boundaries of what a 21st century band can bring to pop music and pop culture, will be releasing their Columbia Records sophomore album this summer. Creatively crafted from a roost of limitless possibilities, the album infuses all of the undeniable joy and eccentricity of a WOTE song with a decidedly more ambitious production. Their lead single, "Rule The World," mixes bombastic production with its uplifting chant and foreshadows an album overflowing with musical surprises.

The multi-platinum selling Canadian quintet, Marshall, Gianni Luminati, Taylor, Joel Cassady, and Sarah Blackwood, 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.  Last year’s single, “Red Hands,” generated 11 million Spotify streams and spent five weeks at #1 on AAA radio. 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.

Filter Magazine: “It's brilliant, both in concept and execution - a dual visual metaphor of the seemingly disparate sound and rhythm components that, when played together, form a recognizable song, and the way five different people unite to form one band."

Parade: "These YouTube darlings bring stomping rhythms and sweet harmonies."
