Before Hot Chelle Rae “fueled up the Jeep with bubbly elasti-funk and breezy hip-hop swagger” (as Entertainment Weekly put it) with their brand new single “I Like It Like That,” the Nashville-based quartet scored a bonafide breakthrough smash hit over the last several months with “Tonight Tonight.” Declared “one of the catchiest pop-rock anthems of the summer” by USA Today, “Tonight Tonight” crashed into the Top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in July like an unruly teenager, shot to No. 1 at Hot AC radio in September, was certified double-platinum in the U.S., and certified platinum in Canada and Australia. Meanwhile, its hilarious video (featuring a cameo by guitarist Nash Overstreet’s brother, Glee’s Chord Overstreet) has racked up nearly 30 million views online, energizing the group’s active, devoted fan base. But it wasn’t until Jon Stewart sang a snippet of its chorus on The Daily Show that the band realized just how thoroughly “Tonight Tonight” had penetrated the mainstream.

Now Hot Chelle Rae is ready to cash in the chips it’s earned with the success of “Tonight Tonight” and “I Like It Like That.” “Those songs set the stage for WHATEVER,” Ryan says. “It’s loaded with feel-good, windows-down tunes that people can relate to and that are fun to play live.” The band spent the summer on the road with We The Kings and the fall touring with The Script in the US, along with a handful of headlining European tour dates. In early 2012 they will headline a tour across the United States before heading to Australia for a March arena tour with Taylor Swift, where they are sure to win over even more new admirers. “Our fans are so loyal and engaged,” Nash says. “The most fun we have playing live is when they are excited and singing along. It’s really energizing to have them instantly giving it back to you. It keeps us going and hyped to carry on.”
