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.," 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. Live 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.
