The Wanted are attracting serious attention in America
The Wanted have revealed that they are starting to make an impression on America and have introduced their single 'Glad You Came' to radio stations' playlists.
The boyband are going to put more time and effort into raising their profile in the U.S. next year and Tom Parker told the Daily Star newspaper that they're close to penning a stateside record deal:
"'Glad You Came' has just been added to the playlist on Kiss FM in LA, so that’s about 40 adds in America now. It’s growing really fast for us. We’re speaking to a really big management so once that deal is done and we get a few more radio adds I think it’s going to really take off.”
Jay McGuiness added that they are willing to start on the bottom rung in America and work their way up with extensive touring and promotional appearances, but won't neglect their loyal fans in the UK:
"We have the boyband hype side of it but at the same time it’s about hearing our songs and getting them in your head. We’re prepared to do the whole touring thing in America."
"Our fans at home know, because we do the online stuff so religiously, every week we email and are on Twitter, it’s not like we’re going to disappear like some acts do.”
