    R5 Signs to Hollywood Records - It's a group of Colorado siblings

    Hollywood Records has signed R5.

    R5 is made up of Littleton, Colorado siblings Ross, Riker, Rocky and Rydel Ross and rounded out by best friend (Ellington) Ratliff. Has to get an "R" in there for continuity's sake.

    According to label top brass, R5 "can write clever songs, sing, play multiple instruments, and act."

    The siblings have been performing since Riker was six years-old and Rydel was one. After moving to Los Angeles in 2007, they've worked steadily on theatrical and commercial projects. Ross landed one of the lead roles in the Disney Channel Original Series Austin & Ally in the role of Austin. Riker has most notably had a recurring role in the hit Fox show Glee.

    R5 currently are recording their debut EP for an early 2013 release as well as a full length R5 album. Next month they will embark on their first headline tour.

    Tour Dates:

    May 3 Orangevale, CA - The Boardwalk
    May 4 Bakersfield, CA – The Underground
    May 5 Santa Ana, CA – Yost Theater
    May 6 Phoenix, AZ – Crescent Ballroom
    May 9 Denver, CO – Bluebird Theater
    May 10 Salt Lake City, UT – Club Sounds
    May 11 Boise, ID – The Venue
    May 13 Seattle, WA – El Corazon
