British boy band Union J started life as a trio in 2011, originally consisting of Josh Cuthbert, Jaymi Hensley and JJ Hamblett, with George Shelley joining in 2012 when the band finished fourth in the ninth series of the ITV series The X Factor.
After the band became so close to winning the show, they gained a record deal with RCA and released their debut single Carry You back in June 2013. The single climbed to number 6 in the UK shingles chart, also charting in Ireland, Scotland and Slovakia. Union J’s eponymous debut album was released shortly after the single and also peaked at number 6.
After signing to Epic Records last year, Union J released their second studio album You Got It All – The Album, which contains the singles You Got It All and the lead single Tonight (We Live Forever), both of which entered the top 10 upon their release.
The band has now released details of a UK tour that will be visiting Leeds on Sunday the 26th of July. Union J will be playing at Millennium Square, one of the cities most important landmarks, which has also played host to the likes of You Me At Six, Madness and many more. Union J will be joined in Millennium Square by a number of special guests that include a number of promising young groups and artists including Luke Friend, Only The Young, Bars & Melody and Sophie May Williams.
