The Veronicas are a LA based band (from Brisbane, Australia) made up of twin sisters – Lisa and Jessica Origliasso, George (Jungle George), Vikk Fox and Mike Sherman. With 2 successful albums, sold out concerts and a very loyal fan base The Veronicas are definitely considered one of Australia’s top Pop/Rock bands. While achieving great success at home might be enough for some bands The Veronicas have been spending a great deal of time trying to achieve the same success in America.

After successful tours with Natasha Bedingfield, The Jonas Brothers and Hanson in 2008, and a slow start for the brilliant single ‘Untouched’ on the US charts, a fan based push saw Untouched top the 9@9 chart on the New York radio station Z100 for weeks on end. Untouched was now The Veronicas most successful single in the US and helped open a few more doors for our girls! The Veronicas wound up their most successful year in the US with rocking performances at the Z100 & Y100 Jingle Ball’s and a co-hosting a gig on the MTV New Year’s Eve special!

After celebrating their birthday’s with family and friends at a swish birthday bash at the Marble Bar in Sydney, the girls spent Christmas at home then quickly jumped back on a plane off to do a 2 week radio promo tour of the US. The first few weeks of 2009 has already seen Untouched reach ‘gold’ sales in the US and it made it as high as number 17 on the Billboard Singles Chart!

2009 will certainly be the year of The Veronicas with the Veronicas set to embark on their sold out Revenge is Sweeter Tour of Australia on the 13th February, followed by a tour of New Zealand with the US, Europe and Japan scheduled for later in the year.
