New Addictions is the fourth and final EP by American pop rock band R5. It was released on May 12, 2017 through Hollywood Records.[1]

Background[edit]

The band announced the release of the EP on April 5, 2017 via Twitter along a two-date pre-release show in April 27, 2017 at Los Angeles and May 11, 2017 on New York City respectively.[2][3] The album was almost entirely produced by band member Rocky Lynch.[4]

Promotion[edit]

The band announced the New Addictions Tour to promote the EP, with the first leg set to start on June 24, 2017 in Denver, Colorado.[5] The same day the EP was released, a music video for the song "If", directed by Michel Borden, was released via Vevo.[6] It was filmed in San Diego and inspired by the films Risky Business, Pulp Fiction, Boogie Nights, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas and Goodfellas.[5]

Reception[edit]

Rolling Stone called the EP "full of sharply constructed pop confections that ride galloping basslines."[7]
