Maroon 5

Multi-platinum, 3-time GRAMMY-Award winning band Maroon 5 has signed to Interscope Records. The group's highly anticipated fifth studio album, titled V, will be released on September 2, 2014, which will be preceded by a new single that will be released this summer. In addition, the band has signed a worldwide tour deal with Live Nationwith tour dates to be announced in the coming weeks.

Recorded in LA over the past year with producers Max Martin, Benny Blanco, Ryan Tedder, Shellback and Sam Martin, V reunites Maroon 5 with long-time keyboardist Jesse Carmichael who took a hiatus while the band recorded 2012's Overexposed.

Capturing their first of three Grammy Awards as "Best New Artist" of 2005 and going on to sell more than 17 million albums worldwide, Maroon 5's releases have gone gold and platinum in over 35 countries. The band won over fans and critics alike with the hybrid rock/R&B sound they introduced on their debut album, Songs About Jane and their double platinum album, It Won't be Soon Before Long, which included hits like  "Makes Me Wonder" and "If I Never See your Face Again." In 2010, the band released their third studio album, Hands All Over, which was certified platinum. The collection featured two hit singles including the Hot AC smash "Misery" and the anthemic  "Moves Like Jagger," which climbed to the #1 spot on the Top 40, Hot AC and Billboard Hot 100 charts. The track has also become one of the best-selling singles of all time. Following the release of the album, both "Misery" and "Moves Like Jagger" received GRAMMY nominations.
