Where will you see 5 Seconds of Summer this summer?
Talk about perfect timing. The 5 Seconds of Summer self-titled debut studio album dropped in Europe just as summer was getting into full swing back in June 2014. The American and Canadian release came a month later with the album preceded by four singles: "She Looks So Perfect," "Don't Stop," "Amnesia" and "Good Girls." The tracks "Everything I Didn't Say" and "Kiss Me Kiss Me" were also released as promotional singles.
Not only did the band's debut album debut at No. 1 on the Billboard Chart, it peaked at No. 1 in 13 countries and hit the Top 10 in 26 countries total. It also won an award from the UK-based magazine Kerrang!, which is devoted to rock music and published by Bauer Media Group.
It's no wonder that after the album's success and a tour with OneDirection, 5 Seconds of Summer was quick to announce on November 22nd that the band would release its first live album by year's end. That project, "LIVESOS," rolled out on December 15, just in time for the holiday season.
5 Seconds of Summer have just returned to the U.S. after playing a handful of dates in Japan. Their next tour isn't set to kick off for a few months, and to keep fans entertained the guys have launched a new website. It's all part of their #5ONTHEWALL campaign, which so far is proving to be quite the mystery.
What will 5 Seconds of Summer be up to next? Stay tuned to find out!
About Five Seconds of Summer
Five seconds of summer is what most of us beg for as the days get shorter and the seasons change. 5 Seconds of Summer also happens to be the name of one of the hottest acts in all of music – an Australian pop punk band consisting of four guys who are not your typical boy band.
For one thing, Luke Hemmings, Michael Clifford, Calum Hood and Ashton Irwin are not yet the North American sensation that would (name) drop them into the same category as NKOTB, BSB, N Sync and more. All four attend Norwest Christian College, made a name for themselves via YouTube before signing with a major label, and are still building an international following.
These guys also have another problem more famous boy bands didn't seem to -- they say they aren't quite raking in the dough despite an EP, "Unplugged," that reached number 3 on the iTunes chart in Australia, not to mention a spot on One Direction's Take Me Home Tour. In fact, the band said in a recent round of interviews that earning solid profits in music showcased a wider industry problem: that people simply don't buy as much music as they used to.
Still, don't think these guys haven't hit the big time. The band had the No. 1 iTunes chart track, "She's So Perfect," in 39 countries. They have legions of teenage girls following their every move around the globe, and those who rejoiced when, in late March 2014, the band became only the fourth Australian group to reach the number one spot on the UK charts – the first to do so in 14 years.
5 Seconds of Summer will once again join One Direction on the road, supporting them on their 2014 Where We Are Tour in the US, Canada, UK and Europe. On April 9, 2014, their "She Looks So Perfect" EP also debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200.
