Why Don’t We closed out 2017 on a remarkably high note. In addition to national television appearances on NBC’s TODAY and the syndicated daytime show Live with Kelly and Ryan the young group performed on the entire iHeartRadio Jingle Ball tour, sharing the stage with some of the biggest names in pop music, including Taylor Swift, Ed Sheeran, and Camila Cabello at NYC’s Madison Square Garden. The group was named MTV PUSH: Artist To Watch for the month of November, while simultaneously serving as Radio Disney’s NBT (Next Big Thing) featured artist, joining an impressive roster of “NBT” alumni including Camila Cabello, Shawn Mendes, Alessia Cara, Fifth Harmony and more. Likewise, a raft of noteworthy press has been rolling in as of late, including features in Rolling Stone, People, and TIME who enthused that the band’s star should only continue to rise in 2018.
Amassing more than 200 million global audio streams, 2.7 million Instagram followers, and total You Tube views exceeding 200 million with over 1.7 million subscribers in just over a year, Why Don’t We has become one of pop music’s biggest breakout stories.
Taking an innovative and unconventional approach towards releasing new music and actively engaging their rapidly growing fanbase, the prolific young group – the quintet ranges in age from 16-19 years old – put out four EPs in under 12 months. Following their debut EP ONLY THE BEGINNING and follow-up SOMETHING DIFFERENT EP, it was last summer’s WHY DON’T WE JUST EP that first exploded, hitting #1 on iTunes’ “Pop Albums” chart, overtaking artists like Bruno Mars, Harry Styles, and Ed Sheeran. After selling out their first-ever headlining summer tour, the band put out their INVITATION EP – released in September to commemorate the band’s one year anniversary – which proved an even greater success, topping iTunes’ “Overall Albums” chart in six countries including the United States. The band’s single These Girls made a top 10 debut on the iTunes Store’s “Top Pop Songs” chart late last summer, with the companion video now boasting over 48 million views at YouTube alone.
The band have recently unveiled their brand new track Hooked – available now at all DSPs and streaming services. On release the song shot to #3 on iTunes’ Overall Songs chart, ahead of artists such as Post Malone, Shawn Mendes, and Ariana Grande among others. Meanwhile, the song’s companion video – which brings the band’s recent comic book-inspired, social posts to life – made its broadcast premiere on MTV and is streaming now on Why Don’t We massively popular YouTube channel, which currently boasts over 1.7 million subscribers.
WHY DON’T WE: Daniel Seavey, Zach Herron, Corbyn Besson, Jonah Marais, Jack Avery and will visit the Belfast Waterfront on Saturday 13th October 2018.
