Regardless of where you are in Australia, I am pretty sure your children are on holidays right now. And that means that the cinemas are full of fun family movies.
If your children, like mine, are excited at the prospect of seeing Ice Age 4: Continental Drift then be sure to keep an ear out throughout the movie for ‘The Wanted’ and their new single ‘Chasing The Sun’, the track will feature in the movie as well as play in its entirety throughout the credits.
The Wanted have made a music video for the version heard on Ice Age 4 and the behind the scenes video has been released. I have been watching them as I write this and I think they are super cute. The music video features scenes from the movie (I think, I haven’t seen it because the kids went without me) which were enough to make me want to go see it, but it also featured each of the main characters of the franchise in the video with The Wanted. If you are a fan of Sid, Diego and Manny then you will get a giggle out of the clip and it is a great little teaser for the movie.
That’s not all of the current The Wanted news though. Yes, cliche as it is… But wait, there’s more!
The Wanted have also just been confirmed for a promotional tour in August on our shores.
This British band is living the dream a year out from their debut single ‘All Time Low’, and it is a dream that far outshone anything they may have expected. They have already racked up quite a number of YouTube views and charting singles, and sold a million copies of their debut album.
A year later they’re back and ready to do it all over again and this year they have a not-so secret weapon. They will be supporting Justin Bieber on his sell-out South American tour which includes a show in Sao Paulo for 120,000 fans. Bieber personally requested The Wanted to support him after they opened for him in London last year.
The Wanted set off on their first UK Arena tour early in 2012 which peaked with their show at London’s 02 Arena in March, since then they have headed to America and Europe and Australia is coming up fast.
The Wanted will be in Australia between the 7th and 11th of August to promote their album – The Wanted – available July 6.
