Ian in Your Ear: The New Kings!

Perhaps you recently saw my Hot Stuff segment with Forever The Sickest Kids on Usmagazine.com. We got a whole lotta response over here, so I thought I'd mention the band recently opened for another band I love, We The Kings, on their recent Glamour Kills Tour.

The Kings' new disc, Smile Kid, features "In-N-Out (Animal Style)," the band's ode to Los Angeles, and "We'll Be A Dream," a pop ballad featuring Demi Lovato. Their crazy-good first single, "Heaven Can Wait," has already reached the Top 10 on the Alternative Singles chart, and it's the band's third Top 40 charting single.

What's more? They've sold over 2 million tracks and had over 56 million plays on MySpace, 15 million YouTube video plays (including the No. 1 most played music video), and three of MTV.com's most requested videos already!

Check out their "Heaven Can Wait" video above and post your thoughts in the comment section. Would love to read 'em.
