Currently making waves in the USA by entering the US iTunes Top 10, the band are about to embark on a tour of America with boy band Big Time Rush. They recently filmed a cameo appearance for the immensely popular Nickelodeon show iCarly, as well as appearing on the cover of the likes of M Magazine. Over 100,000 fans in America also signed up to the band’s US Facebook page in a bid to bring 1D to their home state – Dallas showed the most love for the band to emerge triumphant.
