Beloved American pop band Hot Chelle Rae (HCR) are back!
The fun-loving boys from Nashville return to Australian radio today with their infectious new single “Do The Damn Thing”
Hot Chelle Rae was founded in Nashville circa 2005 and today consists of Ryan Follese, Nash Overstreet and Jamie Follese. Having grown up in musically-inclined households, the three came of age among the songwriting community in Nashville. Hence the foundation upon which HCR was built and boils down to really good music.
The band gained widespread acclaim from their 2011 triple platinum single “Tonight Tonight,” which went #1 across Top 40 radio and sold over 3 million copies, while their single “I Like It Like That” peaked at #28 on the US Billboard Hot 100.
Their skills as songsmiths are mirrored by their live performance chops, refined through years of touring alongside the likes of Taylor Swift, Demi Lovato and Justin Bieber, HCR has become known for their incredible musicianship and intoxicating energy on stage.
Garnering over 9M followers across their social media platforms and millions of fans on YouTube the band are consistently engaged with their global audience.
In 2015 they took a break from the limelight, focusing on their careers as songwriters. During this time, their individual crafts flourished, inspiring them to join forces once again. Slated with a batch of A+ tunes and sound indicative of their growth as writers and people, HCR draws on optimistic themes, a general feel-good mentality and snapshots from their personal lives and experiences.
Coming off their char- topping success of their single “I Hate LA,” Hot Chelle Rae dropped “Do The Damn Thing” featuring Chord Overstreet and LEVI in the US last week. The track was immediately added to over 24 leading playlists such as New Music Friday, Global New Music, New In Pop, and Pandora, the catchy, fun pop tune continues to build momentum and is out now in Australia on Three Amigos Records.
“We’re excited to be releasing Do The Damn Thing. In a time where everything has been negative and heavy, this song is something positive and light for people to have fun and party to.” Hot Chelle Rae
