Nick Jonas is an American singer, songwriter, and actor that recently announced himself as a solo artist on his newly released self-titled debut. The twenty-two year old multi-talented recording artist and actor has lived a lot of life over the years and his experiences are reflected on his self-titled album which was released nationwide on November 11. The album’s double-platinum smash single and #1 U.S. radio hit, “Jealous,” peaked at #7 on Billboard Hot 100. Jonas signals his current musical direction with the album’s sultry current chart-climbing radio single, “Chains”, which peaked at #13 on the Billboard’s Hot 100 chart. He attributes his album’s darker overtones partially to the fact that while he was recording, he was shooting the gritty television show ‘Kingdom’ — a mixed martial arts family drama that premiered on DirecTV's Audience Network on October 8 and was recently picked up for two additional seasons. Jonas recently earned two additional roles in Fox's upcoming horror-comedy series on Fox, ‘Scream Queens’ and the James Franco produced film, ‘Goat’.

The Offspring are Dexter Holland (vocals, guitar), Noodles (guitar), Greg K (bass) and Pete Parada (drums). Following a riot at a 1984 Social Distortion show, high school buddies Dexter and Greg K decided to start their own band in Garden Grove, California. The Offspring have now put out eight records, performed over 1000 shows across the globe, and are known for their many hits including "Self Esteem," "Come Out And Play (Keep 'Em Separated)," "The Kids Aren't Alright," "Hammerhead," and "You're Gonna Go Far, Kid." Their new single, “Coming for You,” recently hit #1 on Billboard’s Mainstream Rock chart, 18 years after their last #1 title. The Coming for You Tour kicks off June 5 in Milwaukee, WI.
