Ross and Rocky Lynch's latest release 'Welcome to the End of Your Life' is actually a motivational song about 'flipping your insecurity off'
Brothers Ross and Rocky Lynch rose to popularity when their pop-rock group made its debut in 2013 with their song peaking at No 24 on the Billboard 200 albums chart. The duo has been steadily releasing music since then.
MEA WorldWide caught up with the band The Driver Era, consisting of brothers, Ross and Rocky Lynch, at the Billboard Music Awards red carpet and Ross, also a star on the 'Chilling Adventures of Sabrina,' show on Netflix, revealed how he juggles his life as a musician and an actor.
Soon after filming Part 2 of the Netflix hit, the 23-year-old star had four months break and he utilized the time to compose new music and do 'The Driver Era Live!' tour.
"We wrapped part 1 and 2 of Sabrina and then we had about four months off and we decided to do a quick tour," said Ross, adding that the schedule had left him with no new music so the duo wrote a bunch of songs and toured.
"We just got off that tour actually and now we are releasing the music we were playing on that tour," he said. "It's been a wild ride," he sighed. The band's new song called 'Welcome to the End of Your Life' dropped about a week back and the video has about 130,000 views so far.
Despite how the title sounds, Ross states that the song is actually a motivational song. He describes the music as "basically flipping your insecurity off, that's what the song feels like," in answer to fans' curiosity over the thought process of the song.
Ross, who was propelled to fame after his debut role as Austin Moon on the Disney Channel original series 'Austin & Ally,' has also been pursuing music for over a decade now. He was the lead vocalist of the pop rock band R5 prior to 'The Driver Era.'
With a fandom hailing from both his music and acting careers, Ross states that "it's hard to differentiate the fans who come from Sabrina or who comes from Austin & Ally or who comes from R5, or whatever."
"We've been doing this for 10 plus years now so it's hard to differentiate between the fans. You're a fan, means you're a fan of everything. Most of the fans that are coming to our shows have seen everything and they have heard everything. They are the hardest core fans so it's just nice to be able to do what we love, to continue to do it and have their support," Ross added.
His brother Rocky, who is the lead guitarist, was also with Ross at the red carpet and he confessed that he has not watched the second season of 'Chilling Adventures of Sabrina," which came out earlier in April and where his brother plays Harvey Kinkle, Sabrina's love interest.
"I've only seen the first season. I need to watch the second to kind of determine if I am full on the show but I like what I have seen so far," Rocky shared.
