Fair Officials have announced that Christian Pop duo for King & Country with Special Guest Matt Maher will perform on Sunday, Aug. 14, at 7 p.m. at the State Fair of West Virginia. Tickets for this show went on sale Friday, Feb. 26.
“For King & Country and Matt Maher are going to add a great sound to our 2016 grandstand lineup,” State Fair CEO Kelly Collins stated. “This is the third show we’ve released for the upcoming State Fair, and with less than six months until the gates open we are getting excited!”
Soaring melodies, driving rhythms, theatrical instrumentation and personal themes are the heartbeat of for KING & COUNTRY’s sophomore album, RUN WILD. LIVE FREE. LOVE STRONG. The duo, comprised of Australian brothers Joel and Luke, has accomplished several notable feats on their new record. Perhaps the most remarkable is that the award-winning rock/pop duo has achieved the unexpected.
Not only have they ventured into new musical territories with some of the highlights being a collaboration with hip-hop artist Andy Mineo, their continued creative partnership with artist/producer Aqualung and their discovery of new soundscapes with producer Tedd T. (MuteMath), but for KING & COUNTRY also managed to surpass the bar that the brothers had set for themselves with their debut album. They raised expectations tremendously with the release of 2012’s Crave and a win for New Artist of the Year at the 2013 GMA Dove Awards, where they received six nominations. Billboard also named them as one of the New Artists to Watch for 2012 and American Songwriter called them “Australia’s answer to Coldplay.”
