After winning "The Sing-Off" in 2011, the quintet set out to produce with Madison Gate Records in Los Angeles. They released their first two EPs, PTX Vol. 1 and PTXmas. Each EP debuted on Billboard's Top 200 and sold more than 125,000 albums. PTX Vol. 2, released November 2013, includes three original songs and five cover versions of popular hits. The album reached number 10 on Billboard's Top 200 and had more than 10 million views on YouTube in the first week.
