On the making of the “Get Up” video:
“We shot the video over the course of a day with our good friend Kelsey Giesbriecht in the forest at home in Winnipeg, Canada. So, it made this experience pretty relaxed and fun. The video plays off as Franky trying to find the right path to his destination in his head, but as everyone knows the self conscious thoughts can get in the way very easily. So I depict the self conscious part of him continuously trying to stop him from reaching and achieving his goal. But in the end he has to decide to stand up and keep moving forward.” – Pascal Courcelles
On the new single “Get Up”:
“Get Up started out as this song Franky and myself (Pascal) started jamming about a year ago while rehearsing and writing. We had gotten most of the song worked out musically and then ended up sitting on it. After some extensive touring and trying to readjust to life at home we had found ourselves at a new low and weren’t sure what to do with ourselves or our music, it felt as though we were burnt out from the in between moments and life in general. There was no motivation or drive left in the tank for what felt like an eternity. Although frustrated and finding it hard to work, we decided to start/continue writing in a dull state of mind. We stumbled across this song we had worked on months prior and decided to completely rearrange it, but this time we had 6+ months of frustration, pent up thoughts and emotions to write about and get out of our systems, The Song is about questioning yourself and life as a whole at your lowest point. What came to be is Get Up.” – Pascal Courcelles
Having opened for acts such as PVRIS, Silverstein, and Rarity in Canada and touring the U.S. multiple times, Alone I Walk is now set to embark on their “Get Up” 2019 U.S. Tour this Summer/Fall, followed by the release of their label debut this September.
The first leg of the tour launches on August 9 in Binghamton, NY and runs through August 27. See dates below.
About Alone I Walk:
Hailing from Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada; Alone I Walk was born from the creative mind of François Courcelles. After brother Pascal Courcelles’ own band separated, he joined his brother Franky in what would become a soon to be iconic musical partnership.
Bringing a wide range of energetic and hooky rhythms to their sound, Alone I Walk ties together a strong and emotive vocal delivery by frontman/guitarist François Courcelles; while Pascal (drums/vocals) lends his impactful harmonies to their sound both live and on record. Signing to Los Angeles based label Anchor Eighty Four Records during the winter of 2019, Alone I Walk traveled to Los Angeles shortly after, tapping producer Johnny Liu (In Her Own Words, Slaves, Slowtrip) to help elevate the demos they had written for their label debut in a way that none of them could have imagined. Being a duo, Franky and Pascal played every instrument and sung every line on the new EP themselves bringing and unmatched cohesive sound to each song that only two people truly connected could have achieved.
