The group is currently nearing the end of their sold-out Middle Of Everywhere World Tour wrapping up shows in the US, Canada, and UK.

BMG US President Repertoire & Marketing Zach Katz said, "Four simultaneous Top 10 hits is an incredible milestone for our recordings business. Significantly they are all in quite different genres. What started as a concept to be the solution for modern day recording artists has grown into a proven ecosystem where artists are partners in their own success. I would like to congratulate Big K.R.I.T., Hollywood Undead, Granger Smith and Hanson on their achievements. We are truly proud to be working with them."
