The Wanted Say US Success Is "Surreal" For Their Families Back Home - Video

The 'Chasing The Sun' singers reveal their families still find it strange to heard them on the radio.

The Wanted say their families back home are "delighted" with the band's recent success in America but admit it can be "surreal" for them.

The 'Glad You Came' singers, who have achieved huge sales with their EP and single launches in the US this year, say their families still find it strange to hear the band's music on the radio. 

"Yeah, I mean my mum cannot believe it," The Wanted's Tom Parker revealed exclusively to Capitalfm.com. "It's all a bit surreal for them, even just in the UK it's so surreal for them. 

"She forgets sometimes that we're in this 'famous boy band', and now to go to the States is like a whole new level," he explained.

"My mum rang me buzzing the other day because she heard 'Chasing The Sun' on the radio here, she was buzzing," fellow band member Max George added. "She was like, 'I've just heard 'Chasing The Sun', it's your song that'."

Meanwhile, the 'Lightning' singers took to the stage on Britain's Got Talent on Monday evening (7th May) to give their first UK performance of new single 'Chasing The Sun'. 

The Wanted's self-titled debut US EP, which includes tracks from both of the band's UK albums, landed in the US Billboard Top 200 top ten last week at number seven.
