The Wanted's 'Chasing The Sun' hits No.1 on iTunes in Ireland

Boyband The Wanted are hard at work preparing for their live performance at the 2012 Billboard Music Awards in Los Angeles, but have shared a supposedly new press shot with their devoted fans.

The lads took to their official Twitter page earlier today (May 18) and sent out a link to a photograph that shows them stood against an exposed brick wall while wearing leather jackets and different coloured jeans.

Despite telling their followers that the picture was new, The Wanted were met with several replies that suggested it has been around for a while and one fan wrote: "mate, that's not a new press shot! #awkward hahahaha :') #ChasingTheSunDay"

They have spent a few hours today promoting their new single, 'Chasing The Sun', via their social networking accounts and were excited to learn that the track had topped the Irish iTunes singles chart. Tom Parker wrote:

"Chasing the sun goes straight in at no.1 in Ireland on iTunes today. Love you guys! X"

The Wanted also recently revealed that their next goal is to get waxworks of themselves displayed in London's Madame Tussauds before One Direction beat them to it.
