Boy band fangirls everywhere are rejoicing! Nick Carter and Jordan Knight have announced that they have joined together as the duo, Nick & Knight and will be releasing an album followed by a national tour.
Saayyyyyy, whhhhattt?!? You read correctly. The guys launched their official website today and played a snippet of their first single, “Just the Two of Us” on Good Morning America this morning. The single will be available as a free download for those that pre-order the album through their official website today. The national tour begins on September 15th in Nashville and ends November 22nd in Canada. Time to get your boy band fix!
One of my fav boy bands, The Wanted, released a statement to their fans today stating that they are taking a break after their upcoming Word of Mouth Tour. Things were getting suspicious when most of the band members began other ventures (modeling, solo single, clothing company, etc) late last year, but the band evaded rumors until now. After releasing the statement, they took to their individual twitters to say that this is not the end. Only time will tell on that front.
In the meantime, they will soon be releasing the video for their newest single, “Glow in the Dark“, an electro-dance track that was, in my opinion, one of the best songs on Word of Mouth. Sigh. Good and bad news all in one. These guys put on an insane live show, so be sure to catch this last tour while you can.
Word of Mouth
By: Nevra Azerkan
It took a long time, but finally the sophomore album (at least for the US) from The Wanted has arrived. The title, Word of Mouth fits the group perfectly since their popularity has grown through people telling their friends and family about them. This grass roots approach has earned them fans that stayed up all night to download the album the moment it was released digitally as well as fans who staged buy outs across the world. This dedication is in hopes of getting The Wanted to be the number one boy band in the world, but will Word of Mouth get them there? Continue Reading
Midnight Red, the newest boy band to hit the scene, are winning fan girls all over with their cover of Taylor Swift’s, “I Knew You Were Trouble“. I’m not a HUGE Swifty fan, but I do like this song and with these guys singing it, I love it. We’ve posted about Midnight Red in the past and have even interviewed them. Needless to say, we want to see more of them. Listen to their cover and you’ll know what I mean.
The day is finally here. Midnight Red‘s single and video is now available on iTunes and can be found here. If you need a little nudge then watch the “Hell Yeah” video (directed by Declan Whitebloom) above and be prepared to watch it over and over again. Whether it’s the song (produced by RedOne), the dancing, the guys, the dancing or the guys (okay, who am I kidding?! It’s really all three.) you might as well just purchase it, so you can view it anytime you want. Also, be sure to catch our super awesome and quite hilarious interview with the guys here.
I first saw Midnight Red perform at City Walk LA with Carly Rae Jepsen and instantly became a fan. I got the chance to sit down with Eric Secharia, Anthony Ladao, Colton Rudloff, Thomas Augusto, and Joey Diggs, Jr. and discuss some pressing questions. The guys discuss which celeb they would fangirl over, what song in music history they wish they had written, their best pick up line, deets on their upcoming debut album and more in the video above. Normally with interviews we post only a few clips, but with Midnight Red we had to post more because they are just that cool. Their music is addicting and the guys themselves are so much fun. Check them out and you can thank me later. Grab their single, “Hell Yeah” on iTunes here.
The U.S. is now being represented in the current boy band resurgence by Midnight Red. Formed by famed producer, RedOne, Midnight Red has already gained massive popularity from touring as the opening act for NKOTBSB last summer. The guys will now be releasing their first single, “Hell Yeah” off of their forthcoming album. Take a listen to this super crazy dance jam below and be sure to nab it on June 19th through iTunes.
