For King & Country is quickly becoming a force in Christian music, and they carried this success onto ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’ last night as the musical guest.
The indie rock performed to songs from their hit album RUN WILD. LIVE FREE. LOVE STRONG. “Fix My Eyes,” was performed for the broadcast audience while the song “Run Wild” was performed for the crowd once the feed was cut.
“Our gratitude to Jimmy Kimmel Live for inviting us into the show, and to you for your gracious support! Would've loved to play the whole album! That said, you can download it here: http://bit.ly/FKCRunWild” the band posted on Facebook.

They took to Facebook to share some photos of the night. “Logo meets logo. Jimmy Kimmel Live#aussiestakekimmel,” and also the below photo captioned “And so it begins!”
“Ladies and Lads! In just a few short weeks, you’re gonna see eight ragamuffins on Jimmy Kimmel LIVE! March 25th is the date, 11:35EST is the time, and “Fix My Eyes” is the song. Who knows, we might even be able to persuade ole Jimmy to bang a drum with us!? Grateful for you, and let’s keep giving the world HOPE! See you on the Tele. – joel & luke,” the brothers announced in an email a few weeks ago.
The band recently released their music video for the latest single “Shoulders.”
"When it came to creating a music video for 'Shoulders,' we knew that it had to carry as much personal and spiritual meaning as the song. Ultimately, the video expands on the question about where help comes from in some of life's most difficult moments," says Luke Smallbone. "Where does that help come from when our grandfather is dying or you're looking at a newborn baby and all the challenges that lie ahead or when you've been in a car wreck and you don't know how you got out."
"We partnered once again with movie-maker and brother, Ben Smallbone (The Proof of Your Love | The Music Video) to write and produce this theatrical and heartfelt piece," adds Joel. "After months of writing and rewriting the story, over two days of filming and countless hours refining, we're more than thrilled with the final product and can't wait to share it."
Already, the video has received powerful comments from viewers. "Shoulders" is the latest single from the GRAMMY award-winning album, RUN WILD. LIVE FREE. LOVE STRONG. This week, it broke the top 10 at NCA and AC Indicator, while landing in the top 5 at No. 4 at CHR radio.
The breakout duo is currently continuing its successful run with Winter Jam 2015, one of the largest tours in the world in the first quarter, according toPollstar. They will continue to tour through spring including a headline show at the historic Ryman auditorium in Nashville, TN on May 22 and select festival dates during the summer.
