BOYBAND Lawson plan to start work on their new album early next year.

The four-piece band, which includes former Winstanley College student Andy Brown, have revealed they are planning on taking a short break over Christmas but want to start on their new album in February.

The group have enjoyed huge success off the back of debut album Chapman Square and can’t wait to get back to work on new music.

They have been busy touring the UK, supporting British singer Jessie J and were a huge hit as last week’s Capital FM Jingle Bell Ball at London’s O2 arena,

The band have also admitted that they would love to enjoy the same success as One Direction have over in America, describing the boys as “inspirational” and crediting them for breaking boundaries for other British artists Stateside.

They have fast become one of the hottest bands in the UK releasing their debut album Chapman Square a year ago and enjoying chart success when it peaked at number four in addition to a string of top five singles including When She Was Mine, Taking Over Me and Juliet.

Singers Ryan Fletcher and Joel Peat told EntertainmentWise: “I think they’re doing absolutely incredible where we obviously dream of but that’s just another level.

“But we’ve been doing quite well over there and we’re going to go back next year as well.

“We love it over there it’s great so fingers crossed we can have half their success.

“There are a lot of people over there flying the flag for British music so fingers crossed we can be a band doing well over there.

“We’ve met them a few times, lovely lads.

“Just very inspirational to see British artists doing that well in America I think that’s the best thing.”

However, Ryan did note that they have slightly different target audiences, saying: “No offence to the boys personally it’s just a very different style of music because they’re obviously like a typical boy band and we’re just a band, it’s kind of a different world.”
