21 March 2017 – TORONTO, ON – Award-winning and multi-platinum-selling Canadian superstars Walk off the Earth have announced a 30-day tour across three continents touring in support of their most recent single, “Fire In My Soul”, released via Universal Music Canada, the country’s leading music company. Fans can expect to be wildly entertained by the band’s one-of-a-kind live show and combination of original hits and cover songs.
The 25-date summer trek will begin in Canada before continuing onto the United States and Europe and will conclude with the first Australian shows of the band’s illustrious career.
The band will then head home to Toronto where bandleaders Sarah Blackwood and Gianni Luminati will welcome their third child together.
“I wonder if I will ever tour again and not be pregnant,” said Blackwood, who has toured extensively while expecting sons Giorgio (three) and Luigi (one).
“Walk off the Earth has always been one big happy family. The more the merrier. We just really can’t wait to get back on the road,” added founding member and lead vocalist Ryan Marshall.
Walk off the Earth has captured their fans’ attention with organic and authentic songwriting and positive, energetic sound. The eccentric 5-piece from Burlington, Ontario continue to find new ways of keeping their music fresh by blending rock, reggae, pop and folk.
