We The Kings get inspirational on their new single, “Just Keep Breathing.”
April showers got you down? “Pretty Little Liars” separation anxiety? Or something worse — gasp! — than missing Spencer and A? No matter what’s giving you the #sadz, We The Kings understand how you feel. “Just take a breath and let it go,” frontman Travis Clark sings on the band’s new single, “Just Keep Breathing,” a track with a fun.-sized chorus that definitely requires full lungs. The inspirational track marks a new direction for the band: after the chiming power-pop chords of 2011’s Sunshine State of Mind, “Just Keep Breathing” opens with an echoing U2-style riff and heart-on-sleeve lyrics a touch more cloudy than the band’s usual Florida rays. When the band leaps into the whoa-oh-oh chorus, it’s as epic as “Game of Thrones.”

We the Kings are gearing up for their fourth album, though we don’t know how the guys will top the award-winning, interactive music video for “Say You Like Me” — no pressure, dudes. Along with some new songs, the band’s likely to serve up another headlining tour: “We The Kings, Breathe Carolina, The Ready Set Summer Tour???” Clark tweeted in March. “What do you guys think ;)” Time to get back out there, guys. We’re ready for some sing-alongs. (And also for “Pretty Little Liars” to come back, June 11 feels like foreeeeeever.)
We the Kings’ “Just Keep Breathing” is out on iTunes now.
