R5 is nominated for "So Happy – Best Song That Makes You Smile" for their single "Smile," and for "So FANtastic – Fiercest Fans." In 2014, the band received the RADIO DISNEY SHOWSTOPPER AWARD in recognition of their dedication to fan engagement and their U.S. and international touring and live event appearances across the country. Their special concert documentary, "R5: All Day, All Night," featuring concert footage, exclusive interviews and footage from the band's early years, will be shown in theaters nationwide during a special, one-night-only engagement on THURSDAY, APRIL 16th. R5 released their debut album, "Louder," on SEPTEMBER 24th, 2013, on HOLLYWOOD RECORDS. The band is set to release their sophomore album, "Sometime Last Night," on JULY 10th.
