Emblem3 returns to the X Factor stage! We caught up with the boys to talk about what they've been up to and their upcoming headlining tour, #BandLife! What a year it has been for Emblem3!
After finishing fourth on last season of X Factor, Emblem3 has released their debut album, scored their first hit single with "Chloe" and gone on tour with Selena Gomez. But now the guys are ready to headline their own!
"We're going to spend the next couple of months developing the show and set," Drew Chadwick told us. "We're just going to do a bunch of fan interaction. It's going to be the most entertaining thing ever." Considering their tour name, we can't wait to see what they have up their sleeves!
The guys were excited to tell us the tour is called #BandLife. "The hash tag band life is based on a separate project that's going hand-in-hand with the tour, but we're not really releasing any information on it right now," Drew added. "If you go...," he said but quickly stopped himself before sharing any surprises. "I don't even want to say anything else."
But they did say something interesting about their song "Chloe" and Khloe Kardashian! "To be honest, it was inspired by that whole situation," Wesley Stromberg told us. "We hung out with them at their Kardashian Christmas party literally the day before we recorded the song." The guys already had the whole song finished, except for the missing name. "We needed a name. I sang her name in that spot and it worked."
Emblem3, like Fifth Harmony and One Direction proves that winning isn't everything. "Last year we got kicked off fourth and we're here," Keaton Stromberg said. "Things have worked out really well for us." His advice for the eliminated acts? "Just keep a positive attitude, believe in themselves and keep working as hard as they can. Stay involved with Twitter, online things, everything."
Emblem3 will be bringing MKTO on their #BandLife Tour, which kicks off early 2014.
