The 'Glad You Came' singers will launch their first stateside album in April following their US success.

The Wanted have announced plans to release their first album in America this April.

The 'Warzone' singers confirmed the news on Twitter today (5th March) following increased success stateside since launching their first US single 'Glad You Came' there in February.

"Great news, America," The Wanted tweeted this afternoon. "We are thrilled to announce we will be releasing our first US album on April 24!! Stay tuned for details :)."

The 'Lightning' singers became the highest charting UK boy band in the US last week when 'Glad You Came' rose to number five on the Billboard Top 100, while the track is also currently at number two on the US iTunes chart.

Max, Jay, Siva, Tom and Nathan thanked their fan base over the weekend following an "incredible" sold-out performance at London's O2 Arena as part of their current UK tour 'The Code', which hits Brighton tonight for a performance at The Brighton Centre.

The Wanted will release their first US album on 24th April.
