Rixton Releases New Single, Tour Dates
Attention, teenyboppers (and closeted pop fans)—there’s a new boy band in town! U.K. band Rixton is riding high on the success of their hit singles “Me and My Broken Heart” and “Wait On Me”, and they’ve just announced their next probable hit—”Hotel Ceiling”. The best part? They haven’t even released a full-length album yet (titled Let The Road, it will be released in the U.S. on March 3). To commemorate their success, the band is setting out on a U.S. tour with sultry songstress Ariana Grande this winter. The tour starts off on February 25 in Independence, MO, at the Independence Events Center. After Missouri, the tour continues through Milwaukee, WI; Toronto, ON; New York, NY (for two shows at Madison Square Garden); Atlanta, GA; Miami, FL; Dallas, TX; Phoenix, AZ; Inglewood, CA; San Jose, CA; and Vancouver, BC, among others.

Comprised of Jake Roche, Charley Bagnall, Danny Wilkin, and Lewi Morgan, Rixton first gained attention rearranging and performing cover songs on YouTube. Scooter Braun, manager of Justin Bieber, saw their videos and immediately signed them. Are they destined for Bieber-level stardom? We’ll just have to wait and see.
