Ross Lynch and Rocky Lynch are hitting the road together this year!

The rock star brothers, who make up musical duo The Driver Era, stopped by ET on Tuesday to exclusively reveal that they are embarking on a U.S. tour.

After teasing via Twitter that a "big announcement" was coming, the two shared the news during a YouTube Live interview with ET's Katie Krause.

"I bet, honestly, nobody expected it, because I don't know if we fully expected it," Ross, 23, exclaimed. "We basically made this decision because music means so much to us and a lot of our creative attention, basically, has been put in other places."

"Like, I've been in Vancouver doing Netflix [aka playing Harvey on Chilling Adventures of Sabrina]," he added. "Rocky actually has been holding down the fort, releasing songs like 'Low.' I don't know if you guys have heard that yet. Check that out! That's legitimately my favorite song."

Ross and Rocky also revealed that they plan to release new music before the tour officially kicks off March 13 in Boston, Massachusetts. "Right now we're writing, we're in the studio and making music," Rocky, 24, confirmed. "We played a couple festivals last year ... and there was a couple songs that we actually finished, we just hadn't released, that we played at those shows that were fun. So, there will probably be a couple of those that we play."

"There will be a full band, live drums, guitars, the whole extravaganza, and we'll decide covers and other stuff we want to play," Ross added. "I've got a phone full of songs that I've written, too. We just need to put them out, basically. ... Ideally, we'd like to have a body of work to go on tour with, that's what we're in the studio working on right now."

Ross and Rocky created The Driver Era in March 2018 following the success of their pop-rock band, R5, which was made up of two of their other siblings, Riker and Rydel Lynch, and their best friend, Ellington Ratliff. Since then, Ross and Rocky have released three singles under the new moniker -- "Preacher Man," "Afterglow" and "Low."

So now with a new tour (which they plan to expand to Europe once they have more time), is there any chance we'll get to see them reunite onstage with their former R5 bandmates?

"We'll have maybe a few special appearances," Ross teased, saying, "for sure," when asked if any of those would be family members.

"Maybe related, maybe a close homie," Rocky added. "Yeah, who knows!"
