Listen to Woods’ ‘Before They Pass By’ from Walker, Season 1, Episode 11, “Freedom”

Brooklyn-founded, American indie folk rock band Woods’ ‘Before They Pass By‘ was one of the songs played on The CW’s western crime drama Walker this week — Walker, Season 1, Episode 11, “Freedom“.

The TV series is a reboot of the hit series Walker, Texas Ranger, and the song is from Woods’ eleventh studio album Strange to Explain.

That album was released in 2020 via the band’s own indie label Woodsist.

Strange to Explain was critically acclaimed by a number of heavyweight music magazines at the time, including AllMusic, Under the Radar and Pitchfork.

Woods’ mellow and quite lovely ‘Before They Pass By‘ is one of several songs featured on TV series, with other band songs being licensed for play on shows like Private Practice, Elementary and Nashville.

The current lineup of Woods comprises lead vocalist and guitarist Jeremy Earl, Jarvis Taveniere on guitar, drummer, bassist and acoustic guitarist Aaron Neveu, bass guitarist Chuck Van Dyck, and keyboardist and saxophonist Kyle Forester.

Listen to Woods’ ‘Before They Pass By‘ as heard on Walker on the band’s Strange to Explain album, and in the video.

You can also learn more about the band on their official website.

As for the first season of Walker, the first season will end on August 12th but a second season has already been greenlit, with that due to premiere on The CW in October.
