After an incredible year and a half of touring the globe; playing 150 shows to packed-house crowds from North America to Australia and everywhere in-between (21 countries at last count), pop-rock quintet R5 are ready to move one step closer to world domination with the release of their much-anticipated first single, “Let’s Not Be Alone Tonight,” off their upcoming sophomore album due this summer.

To support their release, R5 will rock movie theaters across the U.S. with a special one night only big screen release of “R5: All Day, All Night” on Thursday, April 16. The 90 minute documentary takes fans through the band’s career from inception to their first world tour and ending with an intimate standing-room-only performance at the famed Roxy Theater in Los Angeles. The movie also features never-before-seen footage from the band’s early years. For theater locations and tickets, visit Fathom Events at http://www.fathomevents.com/event/r5-all-day-all-night.

Following the release of the band’s sophomore album, R5 will mount a U.S. summer tour that will bring their electrifying live show to every corner of the U.S. and will follow with international tour dates in the fall.

The band’s yet-to-be-titled album is the follow-up to their debut album LOUDER, which rocketed to No. 1 on iTunes in 10 countries. Led by vocalist/rhythm guitarist Ross Lynch, R5 came together in 2009 and is comprised of Lynch's siblings Riker (bass/vocals), Rocky (lead guitar/vocals) and Rydel (keyboard/vocals) and friend Ellington "Ratliff" (drums/vocals). R5 has rapidly emerged as an exciting new voice in the world of pop rock.
Jacob Whitesides
Humble, Gracious, and Genuine are just a few of the words you will hear fans use to describe You Tube Sensation Jacob Whitesides.

Whitesides is a singer songwriter from Knoxville, Tennessee. Jacob was first inspired at a Bluegrass festival in 2008, and ever since then he knew he wanted to do music for a living! Following the festival, Jacob set out to learn how to play guitar and sing. After playing around his hometown area of East Tennessee for awhile, two years ago, Jacob started uploading cover songs to You Tube as a hobby. Six million views plus later, here we are. He is now 16 and is having a blast traveling and meeting his fans known as "Whitesiders" all over the country.

Jacob is an experienced guitar player and singer who puts favorable twists on covers and is currently writing his own songs for an album in nearby Nashville with the likes of Ernie Halter and other Music Row elites. Jacob also loves to play other instruments such as drums, ukulele, and electric lead.

Jacob was voted Knoxville Tennessee's "Best Young Voice" of the year for 2011 in the junior voice competition for a good reason. In 2012, Jacob auditioned and made the first cut in the Fox Television music competition series X-Factor in front of judges Simon Cowell, Britney Spears, Demi Lovato and music industry icon L.A Reid. Since then, Jacob has been out on the road perfecting his craft playing a variety of shows, events, and festivals all over the US.
