Check Yes with We The Kings Live in Manila – 7 June 2014



Bradenton, Florida royalty We The Kings will be back for their 3rd concert in Manila this coming June 7! Their platinum song entitled “Check Yes Juliet” is the first solo hit that hailed these Kings to popularity. They ruled all over the US through their 2007 self-titled album with over 250,000 copies sold.

A year after their successful debut, they won as “Best Pop Punk Artist” at the Rock Request Awards. They continued to reign after the release of their 2nd album “Smile Kid” in 2009. Included in the said album are Top 40 singles and Teen Choice Award nominees “Heaven Can Wait” and “We’ll Be a Dream” featuring Demi Lovato. Afterwhich, they made sure to nail their throne in the limelight scene with their 3rd album entitled “Sunshine State of Mind” in 2011. Included in this album is the MTV Music Awards Winner for Most Innovative Music Video and Song of the Year “Say You Like Me”. Lastly, for their upcoming concert tour, they’ll be singing songs from their latest album “Somewhere Somehow”.



Roll call: Travis Clark – lead vocals, guitar and keyboard, Hunter Thomsen – guitar and backing vocals, Danny Duncan – drums, Charles Trippy – bass, Coley O’Toole – keyboard, rhythm guitar and backing vocal


Here in the Philippines, this band may not be as popular as Green Day, Simple Plan, Yellowcard or Linkin Park BUT if you are really a rock music enthusiast and appreciates feel-good florid lyrics, then you should try listening to We The Kings. I downloaded their first album and I instantly fell in love with it. “Secret Valentine”, “Check Yes Juliet”, “Skyway Avenue” and “All Again For You” are my favourites. After a whole day of listening to their tracks, I downloaded their next 3 albums the next day.


I would like to end this article by quoting this comment I’ve read (from someone anonymous) in Manila Concert Scene blogspot: “This band has earned my respect, as rather than just being a mindless pimply faced-teenie-bopper band, they have penned something deeper than puppy love and ersatz meanderings… A true artist would want to be a beacon of the shapes of things to come, not hiding under a facade of trite commercialism and fanzine-megalomania.”
