Rydel Lynch tickles the ivories on her keyboard in R5‘s “Dark Side” Live video for GoPro.
The 22-year-old keyboardist joins her brothers Ross, Riker and Rocky, plus boyfriend Ellington Ratliff on stage for the live version of their latest single.
“When it comes to R5, it’s been said that ‘you have to see them live to truly understand what they are all about.’ Having toured across 5 continents, 31 countries and played over 250 shows in less than 3 years, R5 have been steadily gaining new fans around the world,” GoPro writes in the notes of the vid.
They add, “This performance version of their song ‘Dark Side’ uses GoPro footage from their last 20 international shows when they toured in South America, Japan, Australia and New Zealand.”
Ross Lynch may have won the blimp for the fourth year in a row at the 2016 Kids’ Choice Awards on Saturday night (March 12) — but he was really pulling for Austin & Ally.
The 20-year-old actor/musician, who is still on tour with R5, won the blimp for Favorite Male TV Actor told co-star Raini Rodriguez over Twitter that he would’ve loved for the show to win, rather than him.
“Congrats to @rossR5 for winning best male actor 4 years in a row!!!” she wrote.
Ross replied, “thanks homie. I would’ve rather had Austin and Ally win…”
Ross Lynch sticks out his tongue in the elevator mirrors in R5‘s brand new music video for “Dark Side”.
The new video, which debuted with On Air with Ryan Seacrest, showed off the band’s tour life.
Riker shared, “There are so many different ways to use a GoPro. We chose to shoot our point of view of touring life from the time we wake up to when we hit the stage. We wanted to give our fans a new perspective of our lives on tour. Being able to watch us perform so close up, I thought it would be cool, but it I actually turned out even better than I imagined.”
Ross added about the track, “‘Dark Side’ explores the thrill of giving in to temptations because those experiences end up making the best stories.
We’re so excited that R5 will be participating in the annualEchoes for Hope hockey game again!
Ross Lynch and his brothers, Riker, Rocky and Ryland, sister Rydel and Ellington Ratliff will be hitting the ice once again to raise monies for Echoes of Hope, which assists emancipated foster youth with the resources they need while pursuing a post-secondary education.
The winner will receive two (2) tickets to Luc Robitaille’s Celebrity Shootout in March, round-trip coach airfare for two, and a one night hotel stay in LA! Plus, you’ll also receive an autographed guitar from R5 and take a photo with the band at the event. Sweet!
Ross Lynch‘s brand-new movie, Snowtime!, is hitting select theaters TOMORROW!
JJJ had the chance to speak with the 20-year-old actor and musician all about playing Piers in the film, and if he could actually build that totally awesome snow fort.
In Snowtime!, to amuse themselves during the winter school break, the kids in a small village decide to have a massive snowball fight and after the snow fort is built, whichever side occupies the fort at the end of the winter break, wins.
JJJ: What appealed to you about the movie?
Ross Lynch: What originally appealed to me was the opportunity to do an animated film. It’s always been something I’ve been very interested in and I’ve always wanted to try it. I’ve done a few voice over roles here and there and it was always a good time and that was what originally sparked my interest. When I was doing the project, the creators and producers and everyone involved in Snowtime was actually really fun to work with. It was a really fun time. I’m really happy that I did it.
JJJ: Tell us more about your character, Piers
RL: I think what everyone likes about him is his relationship with the dog, Cleo. It’s a really cute relationship and they animated it really well. I like how he fits into the group of kids who are in this snowball fight. He’s kind of the…I wouldn’t say he’s a dork, but he’s just gentle.
