We hope you've been studying up on your *Battleground* lyrics because The Wanted have just announced a 2013 world tour!
To support the release of their third studio album, the boys — Tom Parker, Max George, Nathan Sykes, Siva Kaneswaran and Jay McGuiness — will be trekking across the globe to perform tracks from their next album Third Strike.
"Putting together plans for the world tour next year," Tom Parker wrote on Twitter. "Erm... excited isn't the word!"
Besides rehearsing for Justin Bieber's upcoming tour (they're supporting the Biebs in Canada and New York!) the boys have been working hard on their new album, set to be released this March.
"We're about eight tracks [in]. I mean, we've done so many tracks." Tom told Glamour magazine.
"We all love writing as well, whether it's for us or for any other people. So we've written about 30 tracks. We've got eight that we're really happy with, and the others will get shipped off to other places and stuff.
"We've got another writing session in January and then we're looking to have the album out in March 2013."
No dates for the upcoming tour have been revealed yet, but make sure you keep checking back as we'll bring you more deets as they come.
Hey, TWF! Who's excited?
