(New York, NY ) August 2, 2011 – Jive Records recording artist Hot Chelle Rae will continue to roll through the US this summer and fall, announcing additional tour dates with The Script and Big Time Rush. They kicked off their 2011 summer tour on July 10th hitting major markets across the country touring with We the Kings, The Summer Set, The Downtown Fiction, and Action Item on the Friday Is Forever Tour.

Hot Chelle Rae launched their tour in North America on the heels of the band’s most successful single to date “Tonight Tonight” which has been certified platinum in the US and gold in Canada. Currently the single graces pop rotations on more than 150 key radio stations nationwide, is quickly rising and gaining in digital sales (currently at #4 on iTunes, #7 on Top 40 Radio and #7 on Billboard Hot 100). Their video “Tonight Tonight,” which can we seen on MTV and MTV Hits, features a cameo by Glee’s Chord Overstreet. The video has been viewed nearly 8.6 million times and the number keeps growing daily. Look for Hot Chelle Rae’s sophomore record to be released this fall.

Hot Chelle Rae found its massive sound in 2005, each of its members boasting a music pedigree, in addition to serious chops. Guitarist Nash Overstreet, along with front-man RK Follese and drummer Jamie Follese, are all sons of A-list Nashville songsmiths. Bassist Ian Keaggy is the son of Grammy-Award winning guitarist Phil Keaggy. They each bring together talent and a unique passion for music to consistently deliver songs that are larger than life, packed tight with energetic, punchy beats amidst soaring vocals and explosive guitar work that could fill an arena.
