R5 Hitting the Stage with “Sometime Last Night” Tour

Proving to be a huge hit, R5, debuted on Billboard’s Pop Album Chart at the #1 spot and #6 on the Billboard 200, with their new album “Sometime Last Night.” The album also debuted on iTunes’ top ten, following the success of their debut album, “Louder,” which climbed to No.1 on iTunes. R5 is one of the latest calendar licenses acquired by BrownTrout.

The band is comprised of American songwriters and musicians, including siblings Ross Lynch (Lead/vocalist/rhythm, guitarist), Riker (bass/vocals), Rocky (lead guitar/vocals), and Rydel (keyboard/vocals), along with friend Ellington “Ratliff" (drummer/vocalist). For their second new album “Sometime Last Night," the group collaborated with producer Matt Wallace and songwriter Savan Kotecha, who also wrote for pop stars Ariana Grande, Ellie Goudling, and The Weeknd. Ross Lynch and the rest of the band, are considered Disney Artists, with Lynch playing in Disney’s “Austin and Ally” on the Disney Channel.

In an interview with radio.com, R5 talked about their songwriting experiences, and how their hit song “Sometime Last Night” came about. The band had their second album completed, but decided to start from scratch. In the end, it worked to their benefit. “We went to the label and we were like, ‘Let’s scrap it all, and we’re gonna write a new one.’ So we would write a song, and if it was better than the one that we had on a previous record, [we’d use it]. We kept writing and crossing older songs off, and sooner or later, we had 'Sometime Last Night',” said Lynch.

So far, the band has been successful with their new music video for their single “All Night," with 1 million hits within its first week. Premiering on July 8, the video was filmed at the Avalon Hollywood in Los Angeles.

R5’s tour “Sometime Last Night” began July 7 in Orange Park, Florida and will end March 15 in Tulsa, Oklahoma. The tour will be hitting a total of 75 cities.
