While on tour, for KING & COUNTRY are planning a full night of live music, with no opening band, and will play their current hit single “Fix My Eyes” and more new music from RUN WILD. LIVE FREE. LOVE STRONG., as well as fan favorites like “The Proof Of Your Love” from their critically acclaimed debut album, Crave.
“While Crave was a great foundational piece, particularly if you have seen us live, you will see this springboard into a new and more developed version of what for KING & COUNTRY is with the rhythm and all of these different components,” says Joel, reflecting on the new album. “One of the things that is really exciting with the album overall is that we have about 300-plus shows under our belts at this point with a group of guys that have become like brothers. We have made these discoveries along the way—our love for rhythm, our excitement for theatrics. These sorts of things have naturally found themselves inside the new record.”
With soaring melodies, driving rhythms and powerful, personal themes of RUN WILD. LIVE FREE. LOVE STRONG., for KING & COUNTRY has created an album that lives up to the band’s name, a reflection of standing and fighting for something bigger than yourself, a mission statement that drove the duo from the first words written for this project until the last note was recorded.
“RUN WILD. LIFE FREE. LOVE STRONG. is a statement of reclaiming our birthright as humans to live a life that is for others--a life that is others-focused, God-focused—and in that find what it truly means to run wild, live free and love strong,” says Joel.
The first single from RUN WILD. LIVE FREE. LOVE STRONG., “Fix My Eyes,” has remained in the Top 5 on iTunes Christian/Gospel singles chart since its release May 1. In addition, Nielson BDS reports that the single had the most stations supporting first-week at Christian AC/CHR radio than any song since 2009, including 100% of the Christian CHR panel. With 98 reporting stations currently spinning “Fix My Eyes,” the song hits No. 10 on the National Christian Audience National Airplay Billboard chart and continues to climb. The song also jumps to No. 3 at Christian CHR while hitting No. 11 on the AC Indicator chart. Fans can get an inside look at the inspiration behind the song “Fix My Eyes” and their exciting live show in the new video below.
