“The Invitation Tour” celebrates Why Don’t We’s latest EP,“INVITATION,” available now all digital music retailers and streaming services. The EP – already the prolific band’s fourth release in a single year - proved an immediate international sensation, topping the iTunes Store’s “Top Pop Albums” chart in six countries including the United States. Likewise, the group has already surpassed over 65 million streams globally on Spotify. Once again taking an innovative and unconventional approach towards releasing new music and engaging a rapidly growing fan base, “INVITATION” arrived on Why Don’t We’s official one-year anniversary as a group, a milestone celebrated at an exclusive party live streamed on the group’s hugely popular YouTube channel.
“INVITATION” arrives just as “Something Different” – featured on Why Don’t We’s “SOMETHING DIFFERENT” EP – is quickly proving to be the band’s breakthrough single. The infectious track is quickly ascending the top 40 at pop radio thanks to support from such influential outlets as New York City’s Z100 and WKTU as well as Los Angeles’ KIIS-FM among others, and has logged more than 15 million steams via Spotify alone. “Something Different” is accompanied by an equally popular companion visual. Directed by internet superstar Logan Paul, the video has earned over 27 million individual plays on YouTube in just four months. Commemorating more than 1 million subscribers to the official Why Don't We channel, YouTube awarded the group with their much coveted, gold-plates button.
Recently named to Billboard’s annual “21 Under 21” ranking, Why Don’t We will celebrate the return of MTV’s Total Request Live with a live performance slated for the resurrected series’ first week back on air, set for October 5th (check local listings). The band – who lit up the summer with their sold out “Something Different Tour” – recently made a stellar network TV debut with a performance of “Something Different” on NBC’s TODAY, followed by high profile appearances at MTV’s 2017 VMA Pre-Show and VMA Weekend as well as the 2017 Arthur Ashe Kids’ Day at the US Open Tennis Championships.
With more than 64 million individual audio streams, nearly 2 million Instagram followers, and total You Tube views approaching 90 million, Why Don’t We is undeniably 2017’s breakout pop supergroup. The band first came together in September 2016, uniting five supremely talented singer/songwriters in Daniel Seavey, Zach Herron, Corbyn Besson, Jonah Marais, and Jack Avery, all rising solo artists, each with their own substantial social media fan followings. But after repeatedly crossing paths on a series of national tours in recent years, the five artists banded together to deepen their powerful connection with fans around the world. With a series of sold out tours and the groundbreaking release of four EPs in under 12 months, Why Don’t We were fast affirmed as a true pop supergroup. US Weekly recently declared Why Don’t We to be “your new favorite” band, noting “the powerhouses — who explain their
sound as an R&B, pop hybrid — are well on their way to music super stardom“ while Forbes magazine dubbed them the “next One Direction.”
Along with their blockbuster “Something Different” visual collaboration, Why Don’t We also join Logan Paul on his debut solo single, “Help Me Help You (Feat. Why Don’t We),” now boasting over 128 million views at Paul’s hugely popular official YouTube.
