The quintet also stopped by Chelsea Lately to discuss their British invasion with host Chelsea Handler.

After greeting all five guys , Handler quipped, "You look like Justin Beiber," to Sykes. 

To which he cracked, "Yeah, if somebody did something horrible to his face, then possibly." 

The host then asked if the boys were fans of Glee, and while none copped to watching the show, Skyes said a certain family member was very excited by the news.

"My sister went mental, she went absolutely crazy, she was screaming down the phone and everything," he revealed.

The band also discussed their penchant for drinking before shows andh how performing in gay clubs helps them pick up girls.

"It's like having 500 wingmen," McGuiness said.
