We love boy bands. Who doesn’t? – crazy people that’s who. But being a boy-band is difficult. It really is an intricate art. It’s not just about smiling, having nice hair and flashing a nipple (honest!) To be successful boy-bands have to have ‘it’. Sometimes, regrettably, boy-bands just don’t have ‘it’, sometimes they have to work at ‘it’ and sometimes, there’s a little gem of a boy-band that has ‘it’ in abundance without even trying. The Loveable Rogues are the very lucky few in the latter category.
About a year ago they walked into Britain’s Got Talent as the total package, ready to be flung straight into super-stardom. They have it all, the look, the voices, a ukulele, and, most importantly, the tunes. They even write their own stuff. So it’s with much excitement we await the release of their debut single ‘What A Night’ which is set to be released 21st April.
They’ve enlisted Ed Drewett to help out on the single. It’s everything you’d expect from the Loveable Rogues – witty and riotous ska-infused, folk-pop delivered with a smile and a wink. And of course, it’s both loveable and roguish. If you haven’t heard it yet, click below. And get ready, it’s going to be all over the radio for the next six months and the chorus will stay with you for days.
It gets even better for the boys, because they’re about to go on tour with Olly Murs. Eddie of the band is as shocked as anyone by the boys’ success, ‘It’s crazy to think that this time last year we were playing pubs and clubs up and down the country and now we’re joining Olly on tour, playing the biggest arenas in the country’.
The video for ‘What a Night’ is set to appear some point next week and we can’t wait to hear the rest of the album the boys have spent the last six months working on. If you fancy seeing the Rogues supporting Olly Murs, details can be found here.
For those with rubbish memories, in the days before Union J were the Next Big Thing and anyone knew who the hell Lucy Spraggan is, best mates Té, Eddie and Sonny were the 3 piece ukelele strumming, ditty singing, ‘Love Sick’ chaps that were winning fine praise and Twitter follows from the BGT judging panel and the likes of Little Mix and JLS.
Since then, they’ve been signed to Mr Chest Hairs very own record label, worked with the likes of Ed Drewett (The Wanted) and Ms D (Wiley’s ‘Heatwave’), and made this pretty cool and incredibly cheap (free) mix tape:
*pops the champagne* *fires the glitter cannon* Congratulations to the Loveable Rogues boys who have signed a big-bucks record deal with hairy music mogul Simon Cowell. The boys, who were one of the highlights of a pretty awesome year from Britain’s Got Talent, have proven their worth outside the competition by getting signed up by Sir Simon’s record company Syco. Expect a single later in the year, and check back soon to see how Doctor Rogues answered your love life dilemmas.
