R5's 'New Addictions' Out Now & Summer Tour Dates Announced

Pop-rock quintet R5 has announced the release of their 5-song EP, NEW ADDICTIONS, and the first leg of the New Addictions Tour kicking off on June 24 in Denver, CO.  Dates in Mexico, across Latin American and in Europe will be announced shortly.

The follow-up to Sometime Last Night – a 2015 release that debuted in the top 10 on the Billboard 200 – New Addictions, currently #3 on the iTunes Pop Chart and #10 on the overall chart, 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

 The first leg of the New Addictions Tour 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 Tickets for the tour will go on sale to the general public starting May 19 at 10 a.m. local time.

In addition, R5 today premiered the video for the first single, “If,” exclusively on Vevo. The song, one of the EP’s most blissed-out moments, fuses disco grooves and dance-pop rhythms to a real-life account of social-media obsession. “The song’s basically a fantasy of running away with this girl we randomly found online,” says lead singer Ross Lynch. The video was shot in San Diego with video director Michael Borden and pays homage to famous movie scenes from Risky Business, Pulp Fiction and Boogie Nights to Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas and Good Fellas.  R5 New Addictions Summer 2017 Tour Dates
