Interview with New Hope Club

We interview George, Blake and Reece about their involvement in new film 'Early Man' and WE PLAY A GAME!

The UK boyband scene has been pretty quiet lately – as The Vamps have been touring the world, and One Direction you know… happened… there hasn’t been a fresh new entry in TIME.

Well, New Hope Club are here to shake things up!

George, Blake and Reece were discovered by ruling British boy band (but actual BAND not just a flurry of choreography) The Vamps in 2015 and were signed to their label ‘Steady Records’.

Each week on her radio show, Meagan introduces her listeners to a new band she’s really into right now. This week it's LANCO

Each week on her radio show, Meagan introduces her listeners to a new band she’s really into right now. And then she writes it up and pops it online. Here is that write up for this week.

LANCO (which stands for Lancaster & Company) is a new country band straight out of Nashville.

They are named after the lead singer’s surname, Brandon Lancaster, who is joined in the band by Chandler Baldwin, Jared Hampton, Tripp Howell, and Eric Steedly. Founded back in 2013, they have been creating music that reaches more than just country lovers – but also pop fans, and fans of all music.


They also just recently appeared on my all-time favourite reality show, The Bachelor!

Their single ‘Born To Love You’ is a fun beat that’s breaking the airwaves across several different country and if they aren’t already popping up where…
