Walk Off The Earth
The Social



Canadian rock band and viral sensation, Walk Off The Earth, is set to take the stage at The Social at Revel on Friday, May 23, at 9 p.m. 
Walk Off The Earth (WOTE) formed 6 years ago in Burlington, Ontario, Canada, releasing two full-length albums and several singles independently. The band began creating low-budget YouTube videos that quickly resulted in an ever-growing fan base all over the world.
The band is no stranger to attracting fans, or "Wote-lings," with their unique homemade videos. They hit upon something special when they decided to shoot their videos all in one take, originally a necessity in order to film and edit their videos quickly. The band's axis shifted in 2012 when a cover of Gotye's "Somebody That I Used to Know" went viral on YouTube. Recorded and filmed in band member Gianni's kitchen, the now-infamous video shows all five members playing, in unconventional ways, one guitar. The song earned 4 million views in one day, and won praise from celebrities like Russell Crowe and Justin Timberlake, and even Gotye. 
The band quickly broke away from the path of a typical viral YouTube sensation, and it is clear that WOTE are much more. Walk Off The Earth now has over 300,000,000 views in total on their channel. And they certainly have a lot to share with the world.
The band’s debut album for Columbia Records, "R.E.V.O" is an acronym for "Realize Every Victory Outright." For the band, it also represents a revolution, a call for listeners to stay positive and keep striving for their goals. The album’s hit song, “Red Hands” was the first song penned by all members of the group since solidifying their current line-up and it is downright anthemic. The drumbastic chorus has such thrust it'll have you thinking, "This is a band that wants to be heard."
