WALK OFF THE EARTH, Columbia Records
Walk Off The Earth have announced that their Columbia Records debut full length R.E.V.O. (an acronym for the band's motto "Realize Every Victory Outright") will be released on March 19. The album features their immensely popular cover of Gotye featuring Kimbra's "Somebody That I Used To Know" (which was the most-viewed cover song of 2012, and the #2 YouTube video of 2012), as well as 10 original songs, including "Red Hands," "Gang of Rhythm," "Speeches," and "Summer Vibe" from this summer's preview EP. The band's original tracks have been incredibly well received, with videos for each of the already released songs quickly surpassing the million-view mark.

After finishing 2012 on many year-end lists with their 140-million-viewed Gotye cover, the group is poised to start 2013 with yet another viral hit. Walk Off The Earth's a capella take on Taylor Swift's "I Knew You Were Trouble," featuring the beatboxing skills of fellow Canadian Terry "KRNFX" Im, has passed 3 million views in less than a week, was featured on the Today Show, and was even noticed by Taylor Swift herself, who shared the "SO unbelievably cool" video on Facebook and Twitter.
