We the Kings

Bradenton pop punk quartet We The Kings have been on an 11-month-long glory run since releasing its self-titled debut album last October on S-Curve (Fountains of Wayne, Joss Stone.) Propelled by constant national touring — which has also found the band returning home periodically to venues like the Orpheum, Jannus Landing and the Vans Warped Tour at Vinoy Park in July — We the Kings’ disc of polished hooks and shouted choruses about young love has produced the hit single “Check Yes Juliet (Run Baby Run).” At press time, the song had reached a very respectable No. 41 on the Billboard Pop 100 Airplay chart. The album has climbed to No. 3 on Billboard’s Top Heatseekers survey. Not bad for a group whose oldest member, frontman Travis Clark, was only 22 at the time the disc dropped.
