These Kids Wear Crowns in Chilliwack

March 1st marks the launch of These Kids Wear Crowns new EP, Jumpstart! If you haven’t already heard about Chilliwack’s hottest success in the Canadian music scene, you need to take a look at These Kids Wear Crowns.

But, before you look at the new website and try to figure out which “kid” you went to school with OR which “kid’s” mom works in your office... watch this high-energy video single, Jumpstart.

Is your foot tapping? Did you have to hang on to your chair to keep yourself from moving all around the room? This dance music is for EVERYONE! Play it again and get moving. How can you sit still listening to this high energy song? It’s full of hope and positive energy.

I had the chance to interview Alexander Johnson, lead singer and Joe Porter, guitars to talk about the release of their new album Jumpstart. We met in Chilliwack’s hippest art gallery, The Grey Area Gallery to talk about what is like to be part of a small town and hit the big time.

Where did you stay in Fort Worth while you recorded the songs on this album? Alex: There were six of us staying in one hotel room for 10 days (laughs).

Everyone says that these guys are really nice. It’s true. They are on the ride of their lives - from small town gigs to touring with Hedley to being signed with EMI Records. They are heading out for 3 weeks of press tour across Canada before launching another tour that brings them back to the Fraser Valley on April 16th at the Vogue Theatre with Fefe Dobson. Buy These Kids Wear Crowns tickets. (General Admission $25).

These Kids are really real. Even though they performed on New Years in Phillips
Square in 2009, these guys aren’t divas. They were exposed to millions of people through the magic of television during that performance. It’s fun to listen to Joe tell about how they stayed at the Sheraton Hotel across from the square and watched the empty square fill with thousands of people as the day progressed. He casually mentions “our marketing people” and their take on the exposure of the band through that performance.

Were you nervous performing at Phillips Square? Joe: Not really. I remember
walking out on stage and I didn’t even look up at first. We walked out, the track started and we started playing. Every once in a while you look up and realize where you are and are just, like, blown away. And then, you look down, keep focusing and keep playing.

It makes me smile. 18 months ago, there were no “marketing people” for These Kids. Now, the “marketing people” are tabulating numbers and telling the band the impact of their music on listeners across this country. They arrived at our interview with two promoters. They have promoters. These Kids are Cool. All they needed was a Jumpstart.
