WE THE KINGS Drops New Single "ALIEN". Announces Tour.
Pop-punk quintet We The Kings is thrilled to share their new single “Alien”, out now. The song marks the band’s first release since signing to Graveboy Records, which is owned and operated by Emo Nite founders T.J. Petracca and Morgan Freed.
Produced by the band’s own Travis Clark, “Alien” is a song about belonging and finding one’s place in the world. Following all of the recent alien sightings and stories - Clark felt it was the perfect analogy to describe his overarching feelings of not fitting in.
This lifelong awareness stemming from sports, academics, and even the pop-punk scene as a whole left Clark feeling alone. The Florida natives finally found their crowd of misfits after starting the band, only to be further labeled in a league of their own.
This theme of not fitting into conventional molds has been a guiding factor for the group and their following. The track is dedicated to those still figuring it out, finding their way in the world, and pushing past societal barriers, just as they are.
“We’re all just a bunch of kids who feel like aliens searching for the answer to the question - ‘does anybody else feel like I do’” shares Clark. “Every few albums or so I get a strong feeling about a song. It’s hard to explain, but the last 2 times I felt this way were with ‘Check Yes Juliet’ and ‘Sad Song’. I have that same feeling about “Alien” so only time will tell what that means!”
Tapping into their early 2000’s sound, We The Kings mix their nostalgic, warm vocals and captivating riffs with modernity to create a relatable track that listeners can find themselves in.
Fans can look forward to hearing “Alien” live as the band hits the road with Story Of The Year in early 2024 for their 20 Years of Page Avenue tour. For a full list of upcoming dates, please see below or visit www.wethekingsmusic.com
