Ready, Set... R5
Hollywood Records’ newest pop-rock band has taken the world by storm. They have garnered a massive global fan-based, toured North America thrice and worked on nearly 100 different theatrical, commercial and dancing projects. This is the phenomenal band known as… R5!
We had the incredible opportunity to interview the talented five-piece pop-rock group. The band consists of four siblings – Ross Lynch (rhythm guitar, lead vocals), Riker Lynch (bass guitar, lead vocals), Rocky Lynch (lead guitar, lead vocals), Rydel Lynch (keyboards, tambourine, vocals) – and a family friend Ellington Ratliff (better known as Ratliff – drums, vocals).
Apart from the family band, Ross also stars in one of Disney’s most popular sitcoms ‘Austin & Ally’ as Austin Moon. Riker also has a recurring role in one of the most popular Fox shows of all time, ‘Glee’, as Jeff.
Judging from the positive reception that their latest single “Crazy 4 U” has received, we truly believe that the band will take over charts worldwide! Before being signed to Hollywood Records, the band released a five-track EP titled Ready Set Rock. After a long wait, the band has announced that their new EP Loud will be released in February 2013 and an album will be released as a follow-up to the EP in Fall 2013.
