We have fun. Let's face it, lately we've probably been having the most fun of our whole career. However, The Fold, at our core, have a depth of emotion behind what we do.
So here's what we did, we set out to make a whole full-length album, just like we've done three times before. To be honest, it had been a while. But this time it was all about the fans. You funded it. You inspired it. You took part in the process.
And because of this, it was by far our most trying, but rewarding experience in the studio. This is an album about Moving Past your fears, and the things that keep you from living your truth. Enjoy!
When The Fold gets inspired to do something big, they don't back down. Sometimes it's to embrace an entire town, like when they took over their old high school to film a video for their song “Neverender”.
This time they've called on a local sensei to train up young martial artists and helped coreograph an entire story. Alongside longtime video director Aaron Green, the students and band members alike were truly amazed as the dream became a reality in this epic battle that will rival any Jackie Chan movie you've ever seen! The Fold hopes to take these young ninjas, and their concert Ninjago concert tour, to LEGOLAND Theme Parks all over the world in 2016/17.

"Moving Past" takes a deeper look at the pictures in our past, challenging us to see them from a new perspective; one that requires total confidence that you're headed somewhere better.
Instead of over-analyzing every current decision in your life with a climate of doubt, fear and uncertainty, let's look back on those old pictures with fresh eyes, and stand firm in our decisions, knowing that this newfound faith will make all the difference.
A wise man once told us “Just stay together, and continue to write the best music you can—great things will happen.” What followed were arguably the most trying 7 years in the history of the music industry, but somehow it never felt like that to us. Needless to say, we followed his advice, and he was right...
Throughout our career, we made 2 albums with Tooth & Nail Records—a cool label out of Seattle that spawned a lot of bands we grew up listening to—and another 2 albums since going independent. We've also found some really fun new ways to laugh at ourselves, like YouTube, where we’ve racked up over 50 million views on our videos.
Once we even got nominated for a Grammy, and saw a single go to number 1 at CHR Radio. Lately, we’ve forged some relationships that we’re really proud of, like an ever-growing friendship with a show called Ninjago, which LEGO produced. The show took on a life of it’s own, and now brings our band name in front of a ba-jillion cool kiddos who might never have heard of us before.
In 2012, we wrote a song that was adopted as the WGN official theme song for The Chicago Cubs, our favorite home team, as well as theme songs for NFL’s Broncos, Bucaneers and Panthers.
We’re so happy and proud that we listened to that man’s advice. Thank you, the listener, for giving us something to sing about!
