The Wanted are proving that they are “Glad You Came” with the news that they will release their debut U.S. album on April 24.
According to the band, further details about the release are still in the works, but they couldn’t hold back their enthusiasm when they made the emoticon-filled announcement on Twitter. The band released their album Battleground, featuring their current single “Glad You Came,” back in their native U.K. in 2011.
“Great news, America: We are thrilled to announce we will be releasing our first US album on April 24!! Stay tuned for details.” They also shared that they are back in the studio for the release, writing, “Just recorded our next single … #expecttheunexpected.”
Before they release the album, the guys have been tapped to join rapper Young Jeezy and MTV Artist to Watch Dev at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas for mtvU’s Spring Break festivities. It’ll all go down March 20 to 22.
“Things have gone absolutely crazy. I can’t believe it,” Parker said of their meteoric rise to fame in America. “We always wanted that aim to go and do it in America. We did under the radar [in the U.K.] and it’s kind of going back to the old traditional way that boy bands and bands used to do it, I suppose. It feels good and we’re doing it old school.”
