R5 recently announced the European leg of their Louder World Tour. That run consists of 21 dates, spanning 13 countries and kicks-off on Feb. 5 in Warsaw and ends on March 8 in Dublin. The band will make stops in Stockholm, Berlin, Barcelona, Paris, London and Dublin among other cities.

Earlier this year, R5 rocketed onto the Billboard Top 200 chart debuting at No. 24 and hit No. 2 on the iTunes Pop chart with their debut album Louder, which was produced by Emanuel “Eman” Kiriakou and Andrew Goldstein for Mod Squad Music Inc., and co-written by the band.

R5 has rapidly emerged as an exciting new voice in the world of pop rock. Originally from Littleton, Colo., the L.A.-based band was formed in 2008 and is comprised of siblings Riker (bass/vocals), Ross (guitar/vocals), Rocky (guitar/vocals) and Rydel Lynch (keyboard/vocals), along with their friend Ellington “Ratliff” (drums/vocals).

The band self-released their first EP, Ready Set Rock in 2010. They signed with Hollywood Records in April of 2012 and released their second EP, Loud, on Feb. 19. R5’s major label debut, Louder, was released on Sept. 24. The quintet starred in a five-part VEVO series titled “R5 on R5,” which saw cameras follow them on a 2013 sold-out tour that included shows in the U.S., Canada, Australia, England and France.

Along with duties in R5, Ross Lynch also starred in the hit 2013 Disney Channel original movie Teen Beach Movie, and was featured on the movie’s soundtrack that hit the No. 2 spot on the iTunes overall album chart and No. 3 on the Billboard 200 chart. The soundtrack spent five consecutive weeks in the top 10 on the Billboard 200 chart and has sold more than 340,000 copies to date. Between R5’s Loud EP and their debut album Louder, the Teen Beach Movie soundtrack and the Austin & Ally soundtrack, Ross has sold more than 500,000 albums to date.
