R5 is back with their EP ‘New Addictions’ today, May 12, and they stopped by HollywoodLife.com for an exclusive interview shortly before the release. WATCH it here!
The extremely talented (and tall) group R5 visited our offices in April to talk new music, tour and more! We asked Ross Lynch, Riker Lynch, Rocky Lynch, Rydel Lynch and Ellington Ratliff all of the burning questions, including what they all think about Ross starring in My Friend Dahmer, and the most unlikely celebrity fan of the band that they ever encountered. You can also click through the gallery to see our exclusive photo shoot with the band!
Of course, we also got them to dig deep and tell us all about New Addictions. “We’re trying to become more self-sufficient as a band, because we’re sick of other people doing stuff that’s mediocre,” Ross tells us, explaining that the quintet has taken charge of everything from writing to producing. “Now, we know who we are and what we want to make,” he adds. Check out our full interview about the EP here, and watch the video above to hear them get into the really fun stuff!
