R5 Drops New EP ‘New Addictions’ and Announces Headlining Summer Tour

The new EP is currently #10 on the iTunes Overall and #3 on the iTunes Pop Charts

Hollywood Records

After two years of waiting, R5 FINALLY released new music!

The 5 song EP, New Addictions, is a follow-up to Sometime Last Night – a 2015 release that debuted in the top 10 on the Billboard 200.

The new EP marks a bold new era for the L.A.-based band.  With R5 taking a greater writing and production role than ever before, the EP finds the musicians refining their song-craft. Built on powerful grooves and sharply crafted hooks, New Addictions also channels the unstoppable energy R5 have recently shown playing festivals alongside artists like The Chainsmokers, Panic! At The Disco, Charlie Puth and Weezer.

In addition to releasing New Addictions today, Ross, Riker, Rocky, Rydel, and Ellington announced the first leg of the New Addictions Tour, which will bring R5’s groove-heavy pop to their hometown of Denver, CO, playing Elitch Gardens, and will include stops in Chicago, Detroit, Boston, Philadelphia, Atlanta and Houston. R5 fan club members will have first access to concert tickets through the band’s fan club presale beginning May 15 at 10 a.m. local time.  Fan club members will receive a password for access to the presale on May 15 at 7am local time.  VIP Meet & Greet upgrades are only available on https://www.r5rocks.com/tour . Tickets for the tour will go on sale to the general public starting May 19 at 10 a.m. local time.
