The Wanted Celebrate Album Release With Letterman Webcast

(Radio.com) The Wanted celebrated the eve of the release of their new album, Word of Mouth, with a group of hardcore fans in the Ed Sullivan Theater in New York City. There were sing-alongs, there was swaying and there was some of the worst on-stage dancing in the history of boy bands. But that's just how The Wanted do.

The guys started with an old one, "All Time Low," to warm up the crowd, with Max George quipping about the legendary "chill" of the Letterman studio, insisted upon by David himself. They were dressed smartly all in black, with Nathan Sykes deviating into a navy blue blazer and Tom Parker sporting stark white sneakers.

Amazingly, Word of Mouth is the band's debut album in America (thought not in Europe), after their huge success in 2012 with an EP and the hit song "Glad You Came." As such, they managed to play several tracks from the album, from the lyrically unorthodox "Walks Like Rihanna" to "I Found You." Sykes introduces "Show Me Love (America)" by suggesting the group "go all boy band on this" and Jay suggest the crowd get into it with a sway. All suggestions are taken.

The thing to know about The Wanted, that was on stark display from the color palette to the attempts on-stage at doing both The Robot and choreography ripped from stock footage of The Temptations, is that they are the yang to One Direction's (white-clothed) yin. It's like Beatles & Stones: doesn't matter what they're actually like, 1D are marketed as the good boys so The Wanted have come to fill the slot as the bad boys. more on this story
