Over the past 5 years, R5 have headlined 7 tours and gone on 2 promotional tours. From an outsider’s perspective, that would imply that they are very experienced with life on the road and the challenges of performing for thousands of adoring fans night after night.

From an insider’s perspective, that implication is totally correct.

We joined Ross, Riker, Rocky, Rydel and Ratliff for two dates of the UK leg of their ‘New Addictions Tour’ to find out exactly what life with the Lynch’s (and a Ratliff) is like.

When R5 released their latest body of work – the ‘New Addictions’ EP in May 2017 – fans were greeted with a different image of the band they had come to love. Suddenly they weren’t just addictive heart throbs – they were addictive…

With this in mind, we had to sit down with the band and chat about where they’re at right now.
