Update: check out my review of 'Loud'!

Attention, all fans of pop-rock music! R5 will be releasing their second EP Loud on February 19, 2013 (Tuesday) and you will definitely not want to not give it a listen!

R5 is a family band comprising of Ross Lynch (rhythm guitar, lead vocals), Riker Lynch (bass guitar, lead vocals), Rocky Lynch (lead guitar, lead vocals), Rydel Lynch (keyboards, tambourine, vocals) and Ellington Ratliff (better known as Ratliff – drums, vocals). Ross, Riker, Rocky and Rydel are siblings while Ratliff is a family friend of theirs. The Lynch family also has another sibling, Ryland, who helps to manage the band.

Ross currently stars as Austin Moon on Disney Channel sitcom 'Austin & Ally' (my favourite show!!!) and Riker also has a recurring role on 'Glee' as Jeff.

Track-listing for R5's Loud EP:

1. "Loud"

2. "Fallin' For You"

3. "I Want U Bad"

4. "Here Comes Forever"

The band uploaded "Loud" and "I Want U Bad" on Youtube as a sneak peek for fans who are dying to hear what the band's upcoming four-track album sounds like. Have a listen to these two songs! Idolator described R5 as a mix of One Direction and the Jonas Brothers, with a touch of Hot Chelle Rae plus a girl - what do you think?
