Big Time Rush were formed by Nickelodeon in 2009 for its TV series of the same name. Casting had begun since 2007 by auditioning more than 1,500 teens and young adults across the country to play four male lead characters. Finally Kendall Francis Schmidt, James David Maslow, Carlos Roberto Pena, Jr. and Logan Phillip Henderson were chosen.
After sealing a deal, the four of them had to decide the name of the group and Big Time Rush was a hockey term they came up with. They were signed to Columbia/Epic record group in 2009 and became a real band beside playing opposite each other in the TV show.
Their debut single, which is a self-titled, was released in November the same year and became the main theme song of the series. It made a strong debut on iTunes, but they didn't break Billboard Hot 100 until their second single "Halfway There" which peaked at No. 93 on the chart.

available for purchase across United States on October 11.

Around 20 - 30 dates are expected to cover their traveling show across North America, Australia and New Zealand.
