Everyone, meet our friends Riker Lynch, Rocky Lynch, Ross Lynch, Rydel Lynch and Ellington Ratliff.

We will let you figure out where their band name, R5, comes from. Take your time.

Riker, Rocky, Ross and Rydel are sibling musicians from Littleton, Colorado. Ellington is their friend from California.

Ryland is the youngest Lynch. He likes wearing hats.

Their fandom is called #R5Family. (Don't bother trying to understand their feels.)

Remember that time Riker Lynch was on "Glee"? That was pretty cool.

But let's be honest. The reason you know who R5 are, even vaguely, is because of Ross Lynch.

A.K.A. that goofy stud from Disney's "Austin & Ally" and "Teen Beach Movie."

(With the most OMG blonde hair you've ever seen.)

R5 are currently working on their debut studio album, coming out in September 2013.

But they're already super popular. 16,000 people showed up to their recent concert in Toronto!

Their lyrics are also pretty rad. I was solo, living YOLO / Till you blew my mind

They were even nominated for "Best Music Group" at the 2013 Radio Disney Awards! Badass.

So, you ready to join the R5 family yet?

Ch'yeah you are.
