Their second full-length album, Weird Kids, was released on February 18, 2014.

Biography[edit]

The band entered the studio in early May 2011 to begin recording their full length debut.[2] On August 3, 2011 it was announced the album would be titled Best Intentions and that it would be released on October 4. It debuted on the U.S. Billboard 200 at No. 122. We Are the In Crowd has regularly toured all year long with fellow bands such as All Time Low and Mayday Parade, and have appeared at Warped Tour in 2010 and 2012. The band has toured with a number of big names playing at festivals such as Leeds. In 2013 the band has toured round much of the world including the UK.

The band has announced via a Fuse video interview that they will be recording material for a new album to be released in the summer/fall of 2013. On August 20, 2013, they released their new single "Attention".

On the 3rd December 2013 We Are the In Crowd announced that they would be releasing a new album, the album named Weird Kids is set for release on the 18th February 2014, they also announced a UK tour in late January followed by A US tour.

The second single from the album Weird Kids "The Best Thing (That Never Happened)" was released on Spotify on the 3rd December, and then due to the "overwhelming response" (Tay) they released it on iTunes the same day, a few days early.

In August 2014 the band were announced as the support acts for British rock band Don Broco during their Kerrang! tour in February 2015.[3]

Formation[edit]

On November 10, 2009, the group announced their signing with Hopeless Records as "The In Crowd" and released their first single "For the Win" on iTunes. The band changed their name to "We Are the In Crowd" due to trademark issues with a reggae band from the seventies who were also called "The In Crowd".[4]

In February 2010, We Are the In Crowd recorded their debut Hopeless Records EP with producers Zack Odom and Kenneth Mount (All Time Low, Mayday Parade, Jimmy Eat World, Cartel). The EP, titled Guaranteed To Disagree, was released on June 8, 2010.[5]

MySpace Incident[edit]

In April 2009, We Are the In Crowd's Myspace page was hacked. The hacker was an ex-member of the band and deleted all of their friends and music. The music site Absolutepunk.net posted a news article regarding the hacking,[6] and the news post attracted the attention of someone at Hopeless Records who contacted the band shortly after. Tay made a video on YouTube announcing the hack.
