Following the success of ‘Me And My Broken Heart’, the lads are back with another tune…
Rixton have confirmed their second single will be called Wait On Me.
The boyband, who hit the top spot with debut track Me And My Broken Heart, will release the song on November 9.
Wait On Me has been co-written with US producer Benny Blanco, who has previously worked with the likes of Katy Perry and Maroon 5.
Rixton have already released the track in America, with the lads already completing their first headline tour across the pond.
Lead singer Jake Roche’s mum Coleen Nolan recently described their success as “surreal”, telling This Morning: “I’ve watched him on The Voice in America and The Ellen Show in America.
“But the most surreal moment for me was Jake performing here on This Morning! It’s just so surreal now. They’ve had a number one, and he’s just never at home now.”
They’ve played sell out shows in New York and Los Angeles this summer.
But there’s no place like home to bring you back down to earth, as rising band Rixton found out.
The band, which features former Blackpool lads Jake Roche and Danny Wilkin, are tipped for the top – with some corners even expecting their stardom to surpass worldwide pop superstars One Direction.
And while in the States they can close streets with pop-up performances, in Blackpool – where keyboard player Danny and singer Jake grew up – it’s a different story, despite having topped UK charts in the summer with number one single Me And My Broken Heart.
This week the foursome, completed by drummer Lewis Morgan and guitarist CharleyBagnall, were in town filming for music website Vevo’s Lift promotion – which for the first time saw fans able to vote for the artist they wanted to feature, with Rixton winning the slot. They spent much of Thursday at the Bourne Poacher in Cleveleys, which until July was run by Danny’s parents and was where Danny and Jake initially started writing music.
All four of the band crammed into the caravan in the pub’s back garden, where Danny was ‘evicted’ to for the noise he made in his bedroom, to record an acoustic version of their next single Wait On Me.
After a long morning there, they moved on to other local spots, including North Pier.
Speaking during a break in recording, Lewis said: “Vevo run the Lift artists competition, putting you up against other artists and fans can elect who they want to watch, for the first time they were able to vote for the act – and we won.
“They do a few videos and it’s about getting to know us and our history.”
The lads are proud of their northern roots – Lewis is from Manchester – and coming back to Blackpool showed them how far their careers have come in a pretty short time.
While Danny and Jake, son of Coleen Nolan and Shane Ritchie, have been writing together for about six years, they were signed by Scooter Braun – the man behind Justin Bieber – in April last year, after he spotted their work online.
Jake said the experience was ‘surreal’. He added: “It’s once you come home that you realise how far it has come.
“Being here, at the Bourne Poacher, this is literally where it started. But two days ago we were in Shanghai.
“It feels incredible. I love being able to see where you have been, and it’s great to see the people who have supported you from the start.
“It feels surreal, having all the people who are on the journey now to come and see where they signed us from.”
