History

2017-2018: Formation, EP, & Tour

Back in August 2017 after the Boy Band show finale, one of the judges Timbaland suggested that the quartet should form a group, "presenting the opportunity to them".[2][3][4]

4th Ave officially announced their band on January 12, 2018. Their first single "XOXO" was released on February 8, 2018, the music video dropping out two months later on April 12th. They performed at the All Star 2018 in Los Angeles on February 16, 2018.[5][6] In March 2018 they participated in March For Our Lives, performing with Vic Mensa.[7] The dates for their first-ever tour, the Initiation Tour, was announced on April 20, 2018.[8]

Their singles "All I Do" (April 26th), and "Gravity" (May 24th) were released, the latter having its acoustic version out in July. In June they attended the 2018 BET Awards, a ceremony held at Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, California. On July 27th their summer single "So Close" was released along with its music video.

On June 24, 2018, they announced the dropping of their debut EP in August. Initiation EP was released on the seventeenth, including all the previously released singles. The band performed with the BBE House Band, at the VMAs on August 20th, and on August 23rd were featured on Play Out of Tune, singing a few of the greatest boy band throwbacks live.[9][10][11] Along with In Real Life, they attended the event Arthur Ashe Kids Day on August 25th.[12] In September they raised money and awareness for Stand Up To Cancer.[13] and visited the Ryan Foundation at Seacrest Studios in October.
