The lads are currently on tour in the USA and have been playing packed shows to excited audiences across the country so have met many of their followers along the way. Max George told MTV:
"The American fans are so optimistic, very intense. They're just really enthusiastic. I get a massive buzz off American people. I think it's really refreshing. The States is one territory in the world we always wanted to crack, and that's like the ultimate. It's been amazing."

"It's all been really quick, actually, and we've only been over here for a week and we've seen it grow massively in just a week. Well that's the power of the Internet; social networking crosses over into so many different territories that for us it's been crucial."
