J-14 is scouting out the hottest bands around... and this week's pick is the return of an old favorite band, The Click Five.
Here are five things you need to know about The Click Five, whose new album TCV is available on iTunes now.
The Click Five met when they were all studying music at the Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA. Ethan Mentzer and Joey Zehr were roommates and moved into a place on Imrie Road where they met Ben Romans and Joe Guese. They called their first album Greetings from Imrie House after the place they met. Fellow Berklee student Kyle Patrick joined the band in 2007.
The band starred in a movie, which debuted at the Tribeca Film Festival in 2007, called Taking 5 about two best friends who kidnap a boy band -- the girls were played by Pretty Little Liars' guest star Alona Tal and Victorious' Daniella Monet. The band is still good friends with Daniella -- in fact, while J-14 was hanging out with The Click Five, Daniella Tweeted us and told us to tell them that "DeeMo" said, "Hi!"
Lead singer Kyle Patrick is also working on a solo project -- in 3D! You can get your own pair of 3D glasses for free from Kyle to see everything in an extra dimension by clicking here.
Ben Romans is the music director for Miranda Cosgrove's concerts and the band has toured the country with her.
The band dedicated their video "Don't Let Me Go" to educate fans on the realities of human trafficking. Watch it here for yourself and learn the shocking realities...
