FRESH: ‘Season’s Greetings From The Sandbar’ – We The Kings

We The Kings release their new Christmas album “Season’s Greetings From The Sandbar”.

We The Kings are ready to rock the holidays with their new beachy rendition of “The Christmas Song (Chestnuts Roasting On An Open Fire)”, taken from their new Christmas enthused long player.

On November 16, 2018 rock band We The Kings released their brand new Christmas album “Season’s Greetings From The Sandbar”, featuring two original tracks as well as eight summery takes on Christmas classics, including “Baby It’s Cold Outside” and “The Christmas Song”. “Season’s Greetings from the Sandbar” has recently been featured on Billboard, Alternative Press, and more, fans can stream it now on Apple Music and Spotify.

“I’ve been wanting to do a Christmas album for a long time, mainly because I’ve never been able to witness a ‘winter wonderland’ as a result of living in Florida and California my whole life” shares lead singer Travis Clark. “So instead of writing another Christmas album that sounded frosty, I decided to record it with more of an ‘island-sunshine’ vibe for everyone who experiences Christmas above 70°F”. We The Kings released their sixth studio album “Six” earlier this year via S-Curve Records/BMG. It secured the #18 spot on the Current Pop Albums Chart, as well as #13 Digital Albums, #21 Current Digital Albums and #23 Digital Albums, among others in its first week. The album has been heralded by Billboard, Alternative Press, Newsday, Rock Sound, Setlist.fm and more, and can be streamed on Spotify and Apple Music, or purchased online.

When naming their latest album “Six”, We The Kings set out to tick a few boxes. Not only does “Six” represent the Florida-based band’s sixth full-length album (all of which, from their 2007 self-titled debut through to 2015’s “Strange Love”, begin with the letter ‘S’, but it also pays tribute to the quintet’s honorary sixth member: their fans. “There’s a pride that fans have about their favorite bands that I think is so special”, frontman Clark says. “These fans have been supporting us for more than a decade. When we’re writing songs, we don’t want to let anyone down”. We The Kings’ storied career has been marked by a deep reciprocity between the band and their fans.

When the group – Clark, Hunter Thomsen (guitar), Danny Duncan (drums), Charles Trippy (bass) and Coley O’Toole (keyboard, guitar) – broke out of Bradenton, Florida in 2007 with “Check Yes Juliet”, one of the most iconic songs of the late ’00s pop-punk movement, millions of listeners around the world instantly fell in love with their buoyant spirit and emotionally poignant songwriting. Follow-up singles like “Heaven Can Wait”, “We’ll Be A Dream”, “Say You Like Me” and “Sad Song” kept We The Kings squarely in the mainstream, but as they readied “Six”, the band dug deep into the past to find inspiration from their earliest days.

Their 10-year anniversary tour for “We The Kings” sold out venues around the world in 2017, and it gave We The Kings a renewed sense of energy as they prepped new music. At its core, “Six”’s true triumph is its emotional heft. So much has changed for We The Kings since “Strange Love”, marriage, child birth, death, and the album’s 11 songs are a tribute to life’s moments, both big and small, and how you never know which is which until much later down the line. “Six” is the 6th studio album from We The Kings and is available now.

So perhaps you’ve read an article or two that I’ve written and wondered “just who is this character?”! Well I thought maybe it would be time to introduce myself and what I’m all about. Well it’s all about the music! Having been born in the late 1970’s I was heavily influenced by my parent’s love of ‘popular’ music and rock and roll of the 1950’s and 60’s. My Mother always said she should of married Elvis and my father was, and is still, in love with Sandie Shaw! But while my Dad’s tastes stopped in about 1967, my Mum carried on loving music throughout the 70’s, 80’s and beyond. My first memory was playing on the floor whilst my Mother was ironing one day with the radio on, and hearing ABBA’s “Super Trouper” dancing my nappy off to it! Maybe that’s where it all went wrong…?! Having been subjected to all and sundry in my infant years, I finally found my feet in the mid-1980’s and began ‘partying’ to the likes of Culture Club, Stevie Wonder(!), Elkie Brooks and Bananarama to name but a few! The year 1987 would have a profound effect on my listening tastes and from thereon in my life would be dominated with buying and listening to music. Any number of outstanding songs were released and listened to that year, most notably “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now”, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” and “La Isla Bonita”. That Summer my mind was completely taken over with music and sounds I’d never heard before and I was totally taken in by it all. My father would say “whaaar rubbish you got on naaaaao?” (I’m from Norfolk!) but I was hooked. And it continued so for the rest of the decade and the next. At the beginning of 1988 I ‘met’ my true love and the singer I’ve worshipped more than any other artist or group. You may know of her. She’s from Australia…! Aside from pop music, my tastes are many and varied and continues to grow and expand as I ‘mature’ in age. I’ve always been heavily interested in films and in particular the mechanics of film making and of course film music, so scores and subsequently orchestral music takes up a lot of my tastes and collection. 90’s dance and club tunes also takes up much of the space in my head and I’m surprised my brain has stopped shaking from the years of abuse it took being dragged to nightclubs, often three times a week in my 20’s! I find with each year that passes I regress back to my youth and of course the 1980’s. 80’s music dominates and the lust to see as many 80’s acts and singers play live now is insatiable. I’m still getting into the groove as much as every breath I take, but I’m never gonna give up listening to my heart and pumping up the volume, simply because I LOVE MUSIC…any kind of music!
