Here's what you (probably) don't know about DNCE

WATCH | Although DNCE fans are well aware of the anticipated self-titled album arriving this Friday, Circa's found some facts that casual fans may not know about the Joe Jonas-fronted band.

Jonas formed the band with Jack Lawless, who'd been the Jonas Brothers' drummer.

Here's what you (probably) don't know about DNCE

WATCH | JinJoo Lee, a guitarist from South Korea, met Jonas and Lawless while touring with Jordin Sparks.

Cole Whittle, bassist for Semi Precious Weapons, is a classically trained pianist.

The band's all about being imperfect. Lee says that's why the "A" is missing from "DNCE."

“Cake by the Ocean” was inspired by a mistake: A confused producer meant to say "Sex on the beach," Jonas told Cosmopolitan.

The music video for "Cake by the Ocean" was directed by Jonas' then-girlfriend, Gigi Hadid.
