The 'Walks Like Rihanna' group say they are missing their fifth member while out in the US.

The Wanted have admitted it is "weird" for them to be promoting new single 'Walks Like Rihanna' without band member Nathan Sykes, while the singer recovers from surgery on his vocal cords.

The UK band updated fans on their fifth member's condition and said he is "doing good" and will hopefully make a full recovery after his surgery in late April.

"Obviously it's weird because we've never been apart," Tom Parker told E! News this week. "He's doing alright.

"We won't know probably for another month or so, until he actually makes a recovery and starts singing again," Tom explained. "But he's doing good."

When asked about the young singer's road to recovery, band member Max George said both Nathan and the rest of the group are remaining positive.

"He's only young as well so the chances are that he's going to be OK," Max explained. "The signs so far have been really good, so fingers crossed."

The band unveiled their music video for new song 'Walks Like Rihanna' this week, that sees them putting their own spin on classic videos from the likes of Backstreet Boys and Take That.

The group's new reality series The Wanted Life is due to premiere in the US on 2nd June while The Wanted will also perform live at the Capital FM Summertime Ball 2013 on 9th June.
