“Wait on Me”, Rixton’s follow up single to chart-topping “Me & My Broken Heart”, is officially out in North America just in time to become the anthem of everyone’s summer! It’s got amazing, poppy beats, sexy lyrics and whistling. And, I mean, what summer anthem doesn’t have whistling in it? Regardless, it’s receiving some really great feedback from fans and critics alike! And the positivity has certainly not gone unnoticed by the band. They took to twitter to thank everyone for the kind remarks!
Thank you lot for your lovely comments about #WaitOnMe.. your support does not go unnoticed x http://t.co/8qGzHySWiR

Plus, one member took the time to painstakingly handwrite all of the lyrics so you can learn the words while simultaneously decoding their upwards slanting handwriting to be a symbol of their optimism in life. Any bets on which member wrote these ones?
So, if you live in North America be sure to get your hands on your very own copy of ‘Wait on Me’ on iTunes. If you don’t live in North America never fear! Rixton have posted a video where all international Rixters can give the new single a listen.
It’s no surprise that Rixton and Rizzle Kicks get on like peanut butter and jelly with Harley jumping on stage with the lads earlier this month at their London gig. And the friendships definitely has it’s perks!
Rixton have come forward to admit that they’ve had a helping hand in a brand new remix of Rizzle Kicks’ song “Tell Her” and we’re kind of, sort of, super loving what we’ve heard so far! The “Tell Her” Rixton remix will be released in the UK on August 11th but you can have an exclusive listen to it right now! What do you think of the new remix? Does it sound “Rixton-y” to you? Let us know what you think in the comments below or over on twitter!
The lads of Rixton have announced that they’ll be releasing a new single for North America, available on iTunes at 9pm PST on Tuesday, July 22! Earlier this week they teased Rixters with a snippet of the song on Snapchat, and all we can say is it sounds upbeat, catchy and like it has a small hint of reggae beats to it.
Rixton also tweeted out the future single artwork and we’re head-over-heels swooning. British boys in black and white? Sign us up!

If you’re dying to hear the song and just can’t wait for iTunes to finish downloading it tonight, you can also tune into 102.7 KIIS-FM tonight at 9pm PST where the boys will take over the spot of host JoJo, count down the top 9 most requested songs and have an exclusive world premiere of ‘Wait On Me’!
Congratulations to Rixton who have gone straight in at Number 1 on the Official Singles Chart today with their debut release, Me And My Broken Heart.
The UK band, who are comprised of frontman Jake Roche, Charley Bagnall (guitar), Danny Wilkin (bass and keyboard) and Lewi Morgan (drums) have knocked It’s My Birthday by will.i.am FT Cody Wise (Number 3 today) off the chart summit after just one week on top.
“Being Number 1 is probably the biggest thing ever that has happened to us in our lives!” a thrilled Jake Roche toldOfficialCharts.com. “And it means a lot because it’s in our home country, and that’s something that’s been the main goal for us, to really make an impact. It’s a dream. Thank you to everyone who has bought it for your support.”
The Manchester band are also staying true to a bold promise they made to their fans earlier this week, by getting matching tattoos now they’ve officially secured a debut chart topper.
Rixton have a tattoo artist booked for a show they are playing tonight, who will ink a broken heart logo onto each band member; Jake is getting his on his bicep, Charley’s will be etched on his rib, Lewi’s on his thumb, and a nervousDanny says that he will be getting his on his thigh, “so he will be able to hide it from [his] parents”.
Chart Fact: Rixton frontman Jake Roche is the son of Shane Richie and former The Nolans singer, Coleen Nolan. We’re sure his parents will be both over the moon at his band scoring their debut Number 1 single, and a tiny bit jealous at the same time for beating both of their Official Chart personal bests! Shane’s highest charting single was his cover of WHAM!’s I’m Your Man, which reached Number 2 in 2003, while The Nolans’ I’m In The Mood For Dancing peaked at Number 3 in 1979. Jake says that his Official Number 1 Award will be going straight on his mum’s mantelpiece. Meanwhile, Problem by Ariana Grande FT Iggy Azalea is a non-mover at Number 2, while last week’s Number 1. Ella Henderson’s former chart topper, Ghost, slides one place to Number 4, and George Ezra’s Budapast completes today’s Top 5, holding firm at Number 5. With 1.17 million plays, Ariana Grande’s Problem is the most streamed track of the week. Three other tracks have also been streamed over a million times this week: Ed Sheeran’s Sing (1.1 million), George Ezra’s Budapest (1.04m) and Ella Henderson’s Ghost (1.01m). – Source
