Ross Lynch (and the Rest of R5) Signed on to Selena Gomez’s Record Label

Austin & Ally fans can rest easy tonight because Ross Lynch just got… a recording contract. That’s right, he and the rest of his band, R5, just signed a deal with Hollywood Records, which is the house to other reknowned artists such as Selena Gomez, Miley Cyrus, and Nick Jonas.

According to ClevverTV, Disney EVP Ken Bunt says:

“[Hollywood Records is] thrilled about R5’s potential. They can write clever songs, sing, play multiple instruments, and act.”

The band, which consists of Ross, his three siblings, Riker (a Glee Warbler!), Rocky and Rydel, and their friend Ratliff (real name Ellington), are currently recording their debut EP. However, R5 fans will have a long wait ahead of them — it’s not set to release until early 2013.

But if you’re lucky, you can catch R5 as early as next week as the group embarks on their tour of the West Coast. Here are the details:

May 3 — Orangevale, CA – The Boardwalk

May 4 — Bakersfield, CA – The Underground

May 5 — Santa Ana, CA – Yost Theater

May 6 — Phoenix, AZ – Crescent Ballroom
