about the band
Upsurge Productions is excited to present pop-rock band We The Kings first live concert performance in Singapore! Since forming in high school in Florida, We the Kings have rung up a string of top 10 rock albums (2007’s We the Kings, 2009’s Smile Kid and 2011’s Sunshine State of Mind) and several hit singles (“Check Yes Juliet”, “Say You Like Me”, “We’ll Be A Dream” featuring Demi Lovato). Along the way, they have toured the world several times over and earned an extraordinarily dedicated fan base.
The band decided to approach their fourth album, Somewhere Somehow, differently by going completely DIY. “We wanted to make this record completely fan-based,” explains Clark. Working with Metro Station’s Blake Healy, multi-instrumentalist/producer Steve Shebby and Clark’s own brother Taylor, Somewhere Somehow showcases the band at both their most ambitious and accessible.
This increasingly personal side to We the Kings now extends off the record. Recently, several members of the band started video blogs, documenting their everyday life on YouTube. “It’s so people understand why we write the songs we do,” says the singer. Of particular note is bass player Charles Trippy, who chronicles his struggles and triumphs while battling brain tumour on his personal Youtube page.
We the Kings may have changed their style over the years. But their mission remains the same."The goal of our band since day one, even from the first album, is to make the world a happier place,” says Clark. “This album just takes it full circle.”
Known for their charismatic live performance, We The Kings will be taking centre stage at The Coliseum™, on 4 June 2014 for their long-awaited concert!
