The Home Team Softens On “Walk This World With Me”

With anticipation building around the group’s forthcoming album, The Crucible Of Life, The Home Team has returned with their tug-on-your-heartstrings ballad, “Walk This World With Me.”

“I personally have a really soft spot for ballads, but to be honest it was kind of a battle deciding whether or not to make one for this album,” vocalist Brian Butcher shares. “The softness isn’t always representative of our sound, but when the idea for this song’s chorus came to me, I was really driven to see it all the way to the end. It is definitely a spiritual successor to Slow Bloom’s ‘Another Night Alone With You,’ but I feel like this time, I got to take everything I learned from the first time around and make an even better song to carry the “ballad” torch. I also feel like this song is just a happy ending to ANAWY.”

Softening from their characteristic high-energy charisma, The Home Team‘s latest effort reveals a striking display of vulnerability. Butcher’s delivery, marked by his signature prowess, shines through a series of shimmering instrumentations that have been stripped back from their usual flair for the dramatics, adding an additional layer of emotion. Check out “Walk This World With Me” below.

The Home Team is slated to act as a rotating headliner across the debut idobi Radio Summer School Tour, which kicks off in Cleveland, OH, on July 10.
