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
American Music Awards After Party
Featuring: The Wanted

This was a big night for The Wanted. They sang their newest single, “I Found You” live at the American Music Awards and killed it. They were also nominated in the “Favorite Band, Duo or Group” category, but lost out to Maroon 5.

After a long wait the music video for “I Found You” from The Wanted has been released. There’s three main observations on this for me. First, I love the song.

It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to let you in on that one. Lastly, they are total bad asses in this video. I almost wish the fight scene could have lasted longer. If anyone said they could take on this boyband, they might want to think about that again.
I won’t ruin the whole “surprise” of the video, you can see that for yourself, but I did enjoy the twist with the female lead character. That was a nice little tease from Nathan. It was creative although I wouldn’t have expected this idea for this particular song, but I can’t complain. I would, however, like to know what happened to the footage filmed in LA that was supposed to be for this video. A completely different idea that must have gotten scrapped last minute, but it doesn’t hurt to throw it up as an unofficial video (hint, hint, guys). But for now, take a look at the official video above and be sure to buy the single on iTunes on November 4th.
[Edit: So, apparently the LA footage will be used for something else “just as big” according to Siva who told fans during a Twitcam session an hour before the video was released.]
