After the success of their inescapable Gold-selling hit single "I'll Be There," Canadian indie pop band Walk Off the Earth returns today with the release of their anthemic new single "Farther We Go" available on all digital streaming platforms now via The Orchard.
"Our new single 'Farther We Go' embraces the magical memories and the innocence of childhood, and encompasses the challenges of being a grown up," shares Walk Off the Earth of their new single. "Life is indeed full of challenges and setbacks, but the importance of remaining hopeful and positive through moments of great difficulty is what shapes us as human beings. We really wanted to emphasize this especially in the current state of the world."
The band continues, "It's the silver lining that allows us to continue to learn and grow, and it's what brings us together. We want to celebrate how far we've come as humans, and how far we still have to go. Let's use it as motivation to continue bettering ourselves and those around us. 'We're getting smarter, the farther and farther we go.'"
Earlier this year, Walk Off the Earth earned two major JUNO Award nominations for Group of the Year and Pop Album of the Year in support of their highly anticipated No. 1 comeback album HERE WE GO! The eclectic LP yielded the pop hit "I'll Be There" -- which peaked at No. 25 on U.S. Hot AC radio and spent 20 consecutive weeks inside the Top 10 of Canada's Hot AC radio chart -- and marked the band's first major release in over 4 years becoming their highest-charting effort to date debuting at No. 1 on Nielsen's Pop Albums chart in the States.
The band has since teamed up with gnash for the catchy anthem "Nicknames" as well as the iconic long-running animated series Pokémon for the release of "Journey Starts Today," which serves as the official theme song for Pokémon Journeys: The Series streaming now on Netflix.
