The new boyband-on-the-block reveal their plans to swoop in and take over the gap in the UK market. With One Direction and The Wanted off taking America by storm, back in Britain we’re getting our boyband fix courtesy of Lawson.
Andy Brown, Adam Pitts, Joel Peat and Ryan Fletcher have just released their debut single, When She Was Mine, and they have been making quite a name for themselves over the past year, touring the country with acts like The Wanted, before embarking on their own headline tour.
With their Wanted buddies and One Direction flying the flag for Brit bands around the globe, the handsome lads have big plans to make fill the gap in the UK market.
Speaking backstage at In:Demand Live, they said:“With all the other boybands, they’re all just doing so well in America. It’s so inspiring to see them, so while they’re over there, weve got the guitar band going on here, so we’re just going to sweep straight through in the UK market and hopefully take that little gap.”
They added: “We watched The Wanted come from their first theatre tour and now they’re like massive in America. Like Ryan says, we’re massively inspired by all the acts we’ve supported.”
Although the group picked up performance tips from The Wanted, they didn’t exactly sit down for a heart-to-heart with the band.
“Instead of talking to us and giving us advice, they just do pranks on us,” they laughed.
The talented lads have also found fans in a host of celebrities, with Olly Murs recently Tweeting: “Hey lads @LawsonOfficial heard ya NEW Tune & Video on tv today!! Proper tunnnnnnne lads!!!”
With their headline tour a sell-out, the boys were also keen to praise their loyal fans, especially the Glaswegian girlies.
“We’re halfway through the headline tour. We started the date in Glasgow and the whole room was bouncing – it’s not been better than Glasgow.
