After an extremely tough year, critically-acclaimed multi-platinum musical phenomenon Walk Off the Earth returns with the new uplifting original pop single “I’ll Be There,” their response to the last year coping with the heartbreaking and unexpected loss of band member Mike ‘Beard Guy’ Taylor. The track is off their highly anticipated forthcoming full-length album of original songs to be released on October 25 via RED MUSIC.

“When we hit a low point, the thing that brings us back is our art, our music,” shares Walk Off the Earth of the inspiration behind their heartwarming new single. “2018 was an extremely tough year for Walk Off the Earth. We lost a band member and a dear friend and had to work through tough personal situations. ‘I’ll Be There’ is our way of rising above the hardship. We wrote this song to show how standing by each other’s side is how we’ve gotten through it all with our heads held high. We want our fans to feel the same way-that we are there for them with our music and are so grateful that they have always been there for us.”
Fresh off their NBA Game 4 national anthem performance and headline appearance at Red Rocks Amphitheater earlier this summer, Walk Off the Earth also released the original single “Mike’s Song” that helped raise thousands of dollars for MusiCounts–Canada’s music education charity associated with the Juno Awards–in honor of Mike Taylor. The band recently wrapped an extensive summer world tour that included stops at Wembley Arena in London and Vancouver’s Orpheum Theatre and will return to North America for a slew of dates in US and Canada this fall.
