Justice Crew 'Live By the Words'.

It's been five years in the making, but Justice Crew's epic first artist album, Live By The Words, is finally here. There are songs you'll know ('Que Sera', anyone?) and future favourites, party bangers and ballads.

Justice Crew - Lukas "Wildrok" Bellesini, Paul "Paulie" Merciadez, Samson Cosray Smith, Solo Tohi, and twins Len and John Ruela Pearce - are apparently at Sony Music Entertainment Australia HQ to talk about their hotly-anticipated debut, but instead they're throwing an impromptu party. "We're creating our own fun - it's a six-man show, right here, right now," John laughs. "It's going on!"

The Australian urban/dance juggernaut have a lot to celebrate. 2014 saw them all but burn the history books. Justice Crew's euphoric 'Que Sera', a tribute to friendship and courage, became the longest-running number one ever on the ARIA Singles Chart at nine weeks - it's currently five-times platinum and up for ARIA Awards (including the prestigious "Song Of The Year"). And now they're unleashing Live By The Words.

Justice Crew have always been about "dreaming big", as Lukas casually reminds us. Live By The Words traces the Sydney outfit's evolution - and expansion. Justice Crew have journeyed far from their days as b-boys victoriously competing for hearts and minds on national television back in 2010. They've built up an impressive discography of hit singles - like 2012's thumping 'Boom Boom', their first ARIA number one, now certified six-times platinum. Today they're multi-faceted entertainers who dance, sing and write their own material alongside elite collaborators. Justice Crew even have a US champion in Pitbull, who swooped on them for his Sony-linked label Mr. 305 Inc. (Last year the troupe toured North America with the Miami rapper and Ke$ha.)

The sextet's range on Live By The Words will surprise. "I think this album represents who we are as a group - we're not just one genre, we're not just dance, we're not just acoustic," Lenny stresses. Some songs, like the romantic R&B single 'Rise & Fall', evoke '90s' vocal ensembles such as Boyz II Men and Jodeci, having what Lenny describes as "a
singer/songwriter kinda feel."

Justice Crew, who collectively command a huge social media following, continue to confound the wider music industry with their uniquely multicultural make-up and vintage showmanship. "When I take a step out and look at the group itself, it's definitely one of a kind," Solo quips. "I don't blame them for being intrigued - 'Oh, who are these guys? They look interesting and they dance and they sing?' It's like, 'All right - they're from Australia.' It's cool!"
