Ever wondered what it would be like to actually be hit on by one of the boys? (We know you’re all fanning yourselves with excitement.) Well, luckily you can experience the whole
awkward thing with the help of the following video. IHeartRadio scripted some pick up lines for the lads, had them stare deeply into our eyes the camera, and deliver them in their best pick up voices. Is it everything you’ve ever dreamed?
Watch Rixton talk about the making of their debut album ‘Let The Road’, due out in March of this year. Hear them chat about their favorite tracks on the record, why ‘Hotel Ceiling’ was chosen as their third single, and what they most look forward to in the upcoming year.
If you missed it (or just want to watch it on repeat), Rixton performed ‘Hotel Ceiling’, their third single off of their debut album, live on Good Morning America yesterday. Despite the early wake up call to be on set, the lads look dapper and Jake’s vocals are outstanding. Don’t forget to purchase Hotel Ceiling on iTunes (and pre-order ‘Let The Road’ while you’re at it)!
There couldn’t possibly be a funnier combination than Lewi, Jake, Danny, Charley AND BuzzFeed. Luckily, the two teamed up to discuss what life is like on the road and answer all of the pressing questions like ‘what really is a Twiglet?’, ‘will Jake have kids?’, and ‘who would play J.Lo in a remake of the Booty music video?’ Check out the interview below for all of the hilarious responses!
1. What’s the best way for a fan to get your attention at a show?
Charley: Signs. The fans these days are putting lights on signs. What has happened?
Jake: Their dad must be like an electrician. Yeah, that gets our attention. When there’s just like a big broken heart with lights, confetti, fireworks (laughs) — like a bigger production then what’s going on onstage.
2. What’s the No. 1 thing you bring on the road with you?
Lewi: The No. 1 thing I bring on tour is probably my phone. I can’t live without my phone.
Charley: My laptop is the No. 1 thing for me.
Jake: Bags of money! I bring my friend, Josh.
3. What’s your craziest tour memory?
Jake: We were on stage in Denver and Danny walked offstage halfway through the set because he needed the toilet, and all I hear was, “Keep talking, keep talking, keep talking,” so I carried on talking, and he came back and apologized. He said, “I’ll never do that again” — it happened again on the London [stop]!
Danny: I had to wee.
4. What are your favorite snacks to bring on your tour bus?
Charley: Skittles I love, they’re my favorite. And Twiglets — but you don’t have them here, so it’s tough to get them in the U.S.
What’s a Twiglet?
Charley: It’s like a savory snack.
Lewi: Yeah — you know marmite? It’s kind of like that, like small sticks. It’s dried. It’s weird, I don’t like it.
Danny: They’re hit or miss. You either love them or hate them. I love them. We love fruit though!
Lewi: Fruit, beers.
Danny: We’re more healthy at the minute, but we go through phases.
