The band has moved one step closer to world domination with the release of their much-anticipated first single “Let’s Not Be Alone Tonight” off their upcoming sophomore album, Sometime Last Night, the follow up to their hit debut album LOUDER, which rocketed to No. 1 on iTunes in 10 countries upon its September 24, 2013 release.
