Since their debut in 2016, Why Don’t We has amassed over 3 billion global career streams, over 900 million YouTube views, 7 million Instagram followers, two RIAA Platinum-certified singles, five RIAA Gold-certified singles, two Top 20 singles at Pop radio, and two Top 10 albums on the Billboard 200 chart. Taking an innovative and unconventional approach towards releasing new music and actively engaging their rapidly growing fanbase, the band put out their first five EPs within their first year together and followed shortly after with their inaugural full-length 8 Letters album in 2018. Soon after, 2019 saw the release of new singles monthly, including standouts “Big Plans,” “I Don’t Belong In This Club” featuring Macklemore, & the Ed Sheeran-penned/Steve Mac-produced hit “What Am I.”
The Los Angeles quintet—Daniel Seavey, Corbyn Besson, Jonah Marais, Jack Avery, and Zach Herron— went back to basics for their sophomore album, flatlining all social media and picking up their instruments to personally write, record, and produce the music themselves. Led by the band’s inaugural Billboard Hot 100 charting Gold--certified single “Fallin’ (Adrenaline),” The Good Times and The Bad Ones earned their highest debut on the Billboard 200 at #3 and their first #1 album on the album sales chart.
The band has sold out back-to-back North American and global headline tours, in addition to performing on historic stages such as Radio City Music Hall (selling out the venue in under two hours) and Madison Square Garden (as part of the iHeartRadio Jingle Ball Tour). Furthermore, Why Don’t We took home the award for “Choice Music Group” at the 2019 Teen Choice Awards, received a nomination for “Best Group” at the 2019 MTV Video Music Awards, and has made high profile national television appearances on NBC’s TODAY Show (including back-to-back summer concerts in Rockefeller Plaza), ABC’s Good Morning America, nationally syndicated Live with Kelly and Ryan, The Ellen DeGeneres Show, NBC’s The Kelly Clarkson Show, CBS’s The Late Late Show with James Corden, ABC's Jimmy Kimmel Live! and more.
Why Don’t We returned in 2021 with their highly-anticipated single “Love Back.” Teaming up with GRAMMY nominated producer JHart, the triumphant new track finds the quintet sounding refreshed as ever after a turbulent year, finding creative solace and marking the beginning of an exciting new era for the group.
Why Don’t We has announced their The Good Times Only Tour featuring special guests The Aces and JVKE. Produced by Live Nation, the 44-city tour kicks off on June 17th at USANA Amphitheater in Salt Lake City, UT making stops across North America in Chicago, Toronto, Philadelphia, Nashville, Atlanta and more before wrapping up in Seattle, WA at White River Amphitheatre on August 24th.
