Despite No New Music, One Direction Aims To Rule Summer With Book, 3-D Film & Tour
This summer is proving to be a big one for One Direction. First the boys are headed back to America in June for their Take Me Home Tour, then, in addition to their 3-D film This Is Us, they’ll be releasing a new book.
Titled One Direction: Where We Are: Our Band, Our Story, their book will be released on August 27, just days before their film hits theaters. Yesterday (May 21) the band released the book cover to fans via Twitter and the 1D newsletter.

The only official book from the band, Where We Are: Our Band, Our Story, follows their journey throughout the past year and a half. It includes their “thoughts and feelings, hopes and dreams, highs and lows.”
The film, due out August 30, promises to also give a behind the scenes look of the band, as the video trailers show the band backstage, on tour and during music video and photo shoots as well as showcasing their practical joke side.
In addition to a film and book, One Direction is partnering with Nabisco as their North American tour sponsor. Fans can expect to see the band on over 20 million packages of Oreo, Ritz Bitz, Cheese Nips, Honey Maid and Chips Ahoy, according to Billboard.
If that’s not enough for One Direction fans, new music is in the works with an expected release late this year. Just last week the band announced their 2014 Where We Are stadium world tour. Lucky for 1D fans, One Direction show no signs of slowing down.
