The Wanted’s production of the video for “Chasing the Sun” caused a number of L.A. residents to experience a power outage. A transformer blew during the video production causing residents to become furious at the lack of power. The group quickly apologized to the affected residents going house to house to do so. The vampire themed promo was unveiled last month. The group is working on a new studio album.

The band is getting ready to appear on the Billboard Music Awards 2012 this year. The single that caused the Las Angeles blackout is available to be pre-order. Justin Bieber, Nelly Futrtado, Usher and Kelly Clarkson will also be appearing at the award show this year.

The group has had success in the United States in spite of the blackout. It can be difficult for British acts to cross over successfully to the U.S. but the boys are going it.
