Walk Off the Earth release ode to New York City with “Fifth Avenue”

Walk Off The Earth, the indie-pop band from Burlington, Ontario have released the new single, “Fifth Avenue,” ahead of their upcoming US tour this November. As percussionist Joel Cassady explains, “New York has been the source of many important milestones for us on our journey as a band, and it felt like the right time to create a song honoring this amazing city that for us and so many others has helped turn dreams into reality.”

Billboard describes the track as “Exploring the wonders and challenges of living in the concrete jungle, the upbeat, New York-inspired tune narrates both the coming of age and the constant epiphanies brought by the chaotic — but endlessly inspiring — life in the city.” Comprised of five multi instrumentalists (Sarah Blackwood, Gianni Luminati, Marshall, Joel Cassady, Beard Guy), Walk Off The Earth originally gained massive public attention when their interpretation of Gotye’s “Somebody That I Used To Know.”

Since then, the band has released a string of successful original songs including “Fire In My Soul” and “Rule The World,” both of which went platinum in Canada and have supported Keith Urban, Snoop Dogg and Steve Aoki, as well as winning the Juno Award (Canadian Grammy) for “Group Of The Year”

After a summer in Canada and Europe, Walk Off The Earth return to the US in November 2018. Watch video of their performance of “Fifth Avenue” on Good Day New York from October 2.
