Los Angeles: Boyzone band members insist there is no rivalry between them and One Direction members because their music is "more grown-up" than the latter.

The Irish boyband, who first rose to fame in 1993, claim they aren't worried about the "Story of My Life" hitmakers, One Direction, stealing their fan base.

"One Direction are 20 years younger than we are and I hope they're still around in 20 years time, but our fans are very different to theirs. Boyzone have an incredible fan base, which is built on a foundation, a solid rock,” contactmusic.com quoted Shane Lynch of Boyzone as saying.

The 37-year-old, who is part of Boyzone with Keith Duffy, 39, Mikey Graham, 41, and Ronan Keating, 36, added: "We don't compete with any of those youngsters anymore for number ones."

" We're a bunch of 40-year-old men and that's reflected in our music. It's more grown-up now and on our new album we have a sound we are proud of that reflects where we are today."
