THE WANTED Fans Gather For The "Battleground" Album Launch and FANmilya Gathering!

"Battleground" is THE WANTEDÆs second studio album which was formally launched by MCA Music last Saturday, September 8, at Astroplus in SM North EDSA The Block. The exciting event also invited all fans of The Wanted in a TW Fanmilya Gathering to celebrate not only BattlegroundÆs release but also the highly anticipated first Manila concert of the British-Irish boy band on September 14 at NBC Tent. Games, premium items, The Wanted merchandise, major raffle prizes (including concert tickets and meet & greet passes!) and up to 20% discount on tickets to see The Wanted Live! in Manila were given away to all attendees and album buyers.

Battleground debuted at number four in Ireland, becoming their first top ten album in the country. In the United Kingdom, the album debuted at number five. It sold 47,530 copies in its first week. The album features eleven tracks including the electro rave thriller ôGold Foreverö, the monster Europop summertime No.1, ôGlad You Cameö, the exhilarating electro-pop ôInvincibleö, the tormented strings of ôWarzoneö and the hottest summer single ôChasing the Sunö among others.

Tom Parker, Max George, Siva Kaneswaran, Jay McGuiness, and Nathan Sykes of THE WANTED û have become front-page news with their ferociously infectious tunes, rock solid friendship and laddish charms. Since the release of their debut #1 single two years ago, ôAll Time Lowö (from their self-titled debut album of 2010), they have become a sensation in the UK, Ireland, South East Asia, and across Europe, piling up a string of five Top 3 singles in the UK. Just recently, they were presented with a Triple Platinum award in the US for their #1 single ôGlad You Cameö. Indeed, The Wanted have artfully transcended the æboy bandÆ mould and brought a blast of much-needed fresh air to British pop music.

Catch ManilaÆs most wanted boys Max, Siva, Jay, Tom and Nathan as they perform Live! on September 14, Friday, 8pm at NBC Tent, Fort Bonifacio, Taguig City.
