The Wanted On US Success: "People Didn't Know We Were A Boyband at First" – Video

The 'Warzone' stars admit they were confident in the strength of their music before heading across the pond.

The Wanted have revealed that the strength of their music has been the key to their success in America.

The 'Gold Forever' stars told Capitalfm.com that they were confident in their tracks as they headed to the US earlier this year because "people can't not listen to really good music".

Singer Tom Parker confessed: "When you've got the songs, we've had seven or eight singles now, and I think they're all great – not even biased I just think the music is just really good.

"So I just think when you go over there with great music, people can't not listen to really good music and not enjoy good music."

The 'Gold Forever' singer also added that people were unaware that they were even a boyband when they arrived and first unveiled 'Glad You Came' to the US market.

"What was good is we went over there and people listened to the music before they knew it was a boyband and it was the same in the UK," he added. "We came out with 'All Time Low' and people heard the song before they knew about the band which I think is a really good thing."

The band have achieved a history making top three single in the country and their debut US EP has gone straight into the top ten of the Billboard charts during 2012 already.

Meanwhile, The Wanted have also revealed they could be heading back to the US this summer in support of R&B star Chris Brown.
