V were a British five-piece boyband made up of Antony Thomas Brant, Aaron Buckingham, Mark Harle, Kevin McDaid and Leon Pisani.
Band member Antony Brant came up with the band name "V" because V is the Roman numeral for five and there were five members in the band. V made their debut at the same time as McFly by supporting Busted's arena tour in the spring of 2004.
Their first single, "Blood, Sweat and Tears", was released in May 2004 and went into the UK Singles Chart at number 6. The video was shot in Miami, Florida in February 2004 and the single contained a collaboration with McFly, called "Chills in the Evening" written by Tom Fletcher from McFly and James Bourne from Busted. The band's second single, released in the August 2004, was a double A-side consisted of a new song "Hip To Hip" and a cover of The Jacksons's song "Can You Feel It" (with a video of the band dressed as a double glazing salesman, ice cream man, postman, milkman and paperboy) and charted at number 5 in the UK chart.
The third single, "You Stood Up" made #12 in the same chart after an appearance on Top of The Pops, but their debut album of the same name failed to reach the UK Albums Chart. In February 2005, V announced their decision to split up on their website.
