For Ross and Rocky Lynch, music is a family business. The brothers got their start in R5, a pop band formed with their siblings Rydel, Riker, and friend Ellington Ratliff, before forming their duo project, The Driver Era in 2018. But they continue to collaborate: Their brother Ryland co-directed the music video for their recent single “A Kiss,” while Riker and Rydel join them on the road to play backup.
Their upcoming tour was put on hold until late summer, but they typically make being active a priority. “We bring a 35-pound kettlebell, so we can do swings and other full-body exercises,” says Ross, who currently stars as Harvey Kinkle in Netflix's Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. But their most challenging workouts are performances. “Every time we leave the stage we are drenched in sweat," he adds.
The band’s two new singles “OMG Plz Don't Come Around” and “flashdrive,” released April 2, are now available to stream on all music platforms. Below, Ross and Rocky compiled a high-tempo workout playlist for Furthermore, featuring their own tracks as well as picks from Diplo, Drake, and more.
