Rixton Ariana Grande Tour — Boys Release New Album, ‘Let The Road’
The boys revealed to HollywoodLife.com exclusively who they would like to have their careers emulate. Lead singer, Jake Roche revealed, “It is different for all of us, but I think the main crossover would be bands like Maroon 5. A lot of people have said that we sound like them and they must be a big influence to us and they are.”
“We love their constancy as they have been around for years and years and they have evolved and keep releasing hit after hit and that is what it is all about! They are a big touring band as well and we are a big fan of that as well,” Jake dished.
The boys, who are managed by Scooter Braun revealed that they have met and hung out with Ariana and Justin Beiber, 20, many times! “We have met them loads of times and have spent lots of time with them, but it’s always at Scooter’s house or backstage. It has never been business, it is always casual and not too deep. I would like to get deeper with them, that would be great!”
Just Jared reported that Jake said, “Let The Road is something we’re incredibly proud of. Songs have survived 6 years to make it on this album, back when me and Danny were writing in the caravan having no idea where they would end up,” he said. “We feel incredibly humbled to be able to share this with our fans, and we hope you enjoy listening to it, just as much as we enjoyed making it.”
