On the Road With Walk Off the Earth: Tour Photo Diary, Week Two
Walk Off the Earth are hard at work on a tour in support of their rapidly approaching album, Sing It All Away. Last week, the Canadian five-piece gave us a behind-the-scenes look into their lives on the road in a photo tour diary, and now we’re proud to share the second installment.
Check out the photos in the gallery above, which capture frontwoman Sarah Blackwood, Gianni Luminati, Ryan Marshall, Mike Taylor and Joel Cassady on stage as well as off -- including some adorable pictures of Blackwood and Luminati’s 2-year-old son.
In a recent interview with Diffuser, Blackwood opened up about what it’s like to have her family on the road with her.
“It’s the greatest feeling in the world to wake up and know I don’t have to go to a s---ty job every week,” Blackwood said. “I get to wake up every day and just be creative, and I get to spend every second of my days with my kid and soon-to-be new baby. And Gianni and I are together so we’re living our dream.”
As for what her son makes of his musician parents, Blackwood says he hasn’t quite recognized his unique family dynamic.
“He does watch all of our YouTube videos; I think in his mind everybody’s parents are on YouTube,” she explained. “And until somebody says to him one day, ‘No, my dad works in a factory. He’s not on TV,’ and then he will be like, ‘I thought everybody’s parents were on TV because my parents are on it.’ I don’t think he’s old enough yet to really conceptualize what it is that we do as careers compared to other people.”
Sing It All Away will arrive on June 16 via Columbia Records. You can catch Walk Off the Earth on tour, which picks up Friday (May 29) in Vancouver. Check out a complete list of stops on their website.
