5 seconds of summer setlist – 5sos
5 Seconds of Summer is an Australian pop rock band. The bandmates stop for a brief photo shoot, making their best punk faces – Hemmings sticks out his tongue, Irwin grimaces, Hood puts a confetti gun on his crotch and shoots it off. Clifford squints and raises his eyebrows. But he looks miserable.
On 22 May, the title track was officially released as the second single from the album. It peaked at number one in Australia in May 2018 40 and stayed on top of the ARIA Chart for eight consecutive weeks. It also stayed at number one on Official New Zealand Music Chart for four consecutive weeks, hit UK Official Charts ‘s Top 5, hit Canada’s Top 5, and hit US Billboard Hot 100 ‘s top 10. In the radio format, it became the band’s first single to top US’s Pop Songs chart and Adult Pop Songs chart, and Canada’s Contemporary Hit Radio chart. It was certified 5x platinum in Australia, 2x platinum in New Zealand, platinum in the US, the UK, and Canada, and gold in Brazil, Belgium, and Italy.
In a recent interview with PopBuzz, the band talked about the confident new direction they’ve mapped out for themselves. The band’s first hit song, She Looks So Perfect, was released in 2014.
With the combination of their awkward teenage charisma, the experience of One Direction’s team, Radio 1’s belief that rock is due for a return and the waning popularity of X Factor-generated boybands, 5SOS could be the blueprint for the next generation of music industry success stories. For labels fatigued by the reality TV format, YouTube is the new pool for easily groomed talent, and 5SOS are the future: a social-media savvy group who hint at rebellion but create their own viral campaigns.
The song was Most Added to Australian radio last week , and while US radio typically takes longer to gravitate to a hit song, ‘Easier’ has the legs (and sound) to make it worldwide.
Aussie pop-rock favourites 5 Seconds Of Summer have shared a trailer for their upcoming music video for their new single ‘Teeth’. 5SOS front-man Luke Hemmings and his former flame Arzaylea Rodriguez’s rocky romance met its end in May this year.
Last January, the band’s label, Capitol, paid for 5SOS to move into the Bel Air house and write their new album for three months. It was a fucking dream come true,” says Irwin. But the band finished it early. So we just had parties all the time,” says Hemmings. We had some pretty great parties at the start of the year, and they kind of got better and better. The last one, the ratio was huge.
With the mixed reception of Youngblood, 5SOS has officially transformed their sound and the audiences they are capable of reaching. Shifting from just a young punk rock group to an aged group of transformable musicians, the group has explored and displayed their capabilities. The new sound of the group, although risky for their older audience, has shown their growth not only as musicians but as men. The entire concept behind the album is their growth from young and partying rock stars to seasoned and experienced musicians struggling with the pressures of fame.
In 2015, 5 Seconds of Summer delivered their second full-length studio album, Sounds Good Feels Good , which found the group collaborating on songs with Good Charlotte ‘s Benji and Joel Madden , All-Time Low ‘s Alex Gaskarth , the Monsters & the Strangerz , and others. Included were the songs “Permanent Vacation,” which they had introduced while on tour, the lead single “She’s Kinda Hot,” and “Jet Black Heart.” Upon its release, the album went to number one in the U.S., U.K., and Australia on the same day. The group embarked on a world tour that tallied over a hundred shows, including stops in Asia, Europe, North America, and their native Australia. At the conclusion of the Sounds Live Feels Live jaunt in late 2016, they returned to the studio to record album number three.
It sounds like the boys who grew up recording videos from their rooms and have always had a huge appreciation for rock music. Its heavy rhythm is reminiscent of the band who is making music solely for the fact that it’s to grow them as people and as artists, despite what critics might say about them. It reflects them as the artists who care about how they’re going to execute a song like this live for the crowd that shows up to see them. It sounds like the guys who worked so hard to reinvent their sound and got brave enough to call it their own. That’s TEETH.” That’s 5SOS, and that’s pretty rock ‘n’ roll.
5 Seconds of Summer (abbreviated 5SOS) is a pop-rock band from Sydney , Australia. The band has 4 members: Calum Hood ( bass guitar , vocals, poet), Michael Clifford (guitar, vocals), Luke Hemmings ( lead vocals , guitar ), and Ashton Irwin ( drums , vocals). The members all went to school with each other except for Ashton. They supported Hot Chelle Rae on their 2012 “Whatever” tour. They toured with One Direction for their TMH and WWA tours and gained international fame. They now have their own tour “Rock Out With Your Socks Out” (ROWYSO). Their second headline tour started in February 2016, “Sounds Live Feels Live” (SLFL). Frontman Luke Hemmings is currently with poet and academic, Sara Scully.
5SOS will perform Want You Back,” the first single from Youngblood, on NBC’s The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon this Wednesday, April 11 – the eve of the band’s sold-out show at New York City’s Irving Plaza. The track debuted at No. 1 on iTunes in over 18 countries and has already amassed more than 60 million streams worldwide. Want You Back” showcases the bold new approach 5SOS takes on Youngblood. Luke Hemmings’ passionate yearning for lost love finds him breaking into a searing falsetto on the infectious chorus. The soaring production and upfront bass line, meanwhile, finds the band exploring grooves and emotions like never before.
In 2018, the band issued Youngblood, which featured production by Carl Falk , Rami Yacoub , Sir Nolan , and others. It found 5 Seconds of Summer committing to a more sophisticated dance-pop sound that they’d hinted at on Sounds Good Feels Good Bolstered by the hit singles “Want You Back” and “Youngblood,” the album became the group’s third consecutive full-length studio effort to hit number one on the Billboard 200. The darkly emotive “Easier” followed in May 2019 as the lead single from the group’s fourth full-length. Produced by Andrew Watt ( Post Malone , Camila Cabello , Cardi B ) the song found them further developing their sound, and exploring ’80s goth and industrial textures.
5 Seconds of Summer is back with Easier ,” their first song since 2018’s Youngblood” and Valentine”—and yet again, the boys have somehow created the sound of summer with this latest track. After the band went three years between 2018’s Billboard 100 #1 record Youngblood and 2015’s Sounds Good Feels Good, they’re showing fans they have no plans on going that far without releases again.
In May 2019, 5SOS debuted Easier,” the first offering from their upcoming fourth studio album. On August 23, they released Teeth” as the second single from the album.
Merging pop-punk energy and ebullient boy band charisma, Australia’s 5 Seconds of Summer burst onto the international music scene in the early 2010s, attracting fans with anthemic, hook-oriented songs that helped land their self-titled 2014 debut at number one on the pop charts. While follow-up album Sounds Good Feels Good retained their guitar-based sound – scoring 5 Seconds of Summer their second Australian and U.S. chart-topper – they underwent a major pop reinvention in 2018 with their third number one, YOUNGBLOOD , which debuted a refined electronic dance-pop vibe.
Armed with a brand new record and a sharper, more mature sound, 5 Seconds of Summer were the young Australian four-piece that introduced Gen Z to modern pop-punk; their lyrics bursting with ace hooks lifted straight from their angsty teenage diaries. For the past seven years, millions of fans have shown up to sell-out arena tours around the world. But the group, comprised of lead singer Luke, guitarist Michael, bass player Calum and drummer Ashton, have grown up now. Have a listen to their comeback single Want You Back – these guys sound more sophisticated and emotionally grounded than ever before.
This Aussie band is following in the footsteps of tour mates One Direction to the top of the charts. Michael, Calum & Luke all played a set without any pants on, to a crowd full of drunk people in their Lobby in London.
But they seem to realize that being a band is what sets them apart from almost everyone else at their level, and they want to hold on to that. They feel sorry for solo pop stars hunkered down with paid helpers at awards shows. No one’s fucking friends,” says Irwin. Despite any tensions, they are going on vacation together in Indonesia over the holiday break. You need to work on the band’s relationship, just like a romantic relationship,” says Irwin.
An album, almost entirely produced by Panic! and Good Charlotte producer John Feldmann, followed soon after and immediately hit #1 in Australia, the US and the UK. Against all odds, the third song from the record Amnesia, showing a distinctively softer side to the boys, became their highest charting single in the US.
Their successful grassroots movement afforded them an opportunity to tour with One Direction in 2013, which gave them their first claim to fame. At the time, the group said it was a huge risk” by leaving the comforts of Australia, where they had already built a good support base.
Before the end of this year, we would love to have at least half the record released through singles,” 5SOS explain. 5 Seconds of Summer (5SOS) are a four piece Australian pop rock band that formed in Sydney, Australia in 2011.
Sure, opening for One Direction on last year’s Take Me Home tour gave 5 Seconds of Summer a new collection of fans… but how is this Capitol Records quartet already on the cusp of pop superstardom, complete with a No. 25 debut on the most recent Social 50 chart ? For those unfamiliar with the backstory of 5 Seconds of Summer, get to know the four-piece before they arrive on the albums chart next week, and proceed in their slow but steady seizing of the mainstream.
