For a generation of fans raised on Auto-Tune, that may be a minor distinction. But 5SOS also expands its subject matter this time, with songs about depression and rejection to go along with the party tunes and the odes to pretty girls. Even the title of the album’s lead single, She’s Kinda Hot,” hints at the flicker of ambivalence that’s crept into the group’s music.
And on Friday guitarist Michael Clifford revealed the four-man band will perform a series of all-ages shows across the country. Fans who have been following 5 Seconds of Summer for years have been saying that TEETH” is the song that truly sounds like 5SOS.
The song is lyrically so dark, but so emotionally raw that it can’t not be good. The truth underlying the hard rock vibe feels likes the masking of pain with the effort you put into making yourself appear stronger than you are. The fact that someone’s heart can have teeth hurts, like the thing or the person that you love can hurt you… It’s painful just to acknowledge it, but 5SOS aren’t afraid to do it.
Listen up, mates. Next in line for the teen heartthrob throne is 5 Seconds of Summer, four Australian lads with perfectly coiffed hair who appear headed for One Direction levels of success.
Five Seconds Of Summer have already dropped three singles from their upcoming fourth studio album. And on Monday, 5SOS singer Luke Hemmings confirmed the band’s new album is done.
Harry Styles pranked” the 5SOS boys on tour by running into their room, throwing their fruit at them, and tipping tables over as he ran off, oh and did I mention, Harry was completely nude whilst doing this! Michael said the event was traumatizing”.
5SOS were one of the biggest breakthrough stories of the last two years; five multi-million selling singles, a self-titled debut album that not only topped the US Album Chart (going to #1 globally on iTunes in 76 countries) but also became the third biggest pre-order in iTunes history and the biggest US debut by an Australian artist ever.
They’re one of the hottest boy bands in the world. And the four Aussie musicians of 5 Seconds Of Summer look VERY different to when they broke onto the scene in 2011.
5 Seconds of Summer is a pop-rock (wanna be punk rock) band that consists of Luke Hemmings (guitar, vocals), Michael Clifford (guitar, vocals), Calum Hood (bass, vocals), and Ashton Irwin (drums, vocals). You can expect a very fun show with loads of energy. 5SOS are probably better live than on their album. They always interact with the crowd to make sure the fans are having the time of their lives.
Ashton Irwin of 5 Seconds of Summer performs in Hollywood & Highland Center. Ashton Irwin just made our day by announcing some information about when 5 Seconds Of Summer will be dropping new music.
The first melodic phrase of Youngblood is virtually identical to the melodic phrase from White Shadows, and the phrases are repeated four times in each respective song. It is clear that 5 Seconds Of Summer had access, means, and motive to appropriate the melodic phrase of White Shadows, and we firmly believe that any listener who hears both songs will notice the substantial similarities,” a statement from the complainants’ lawyers said.
Indeed, it’s a more grown-up album than their self-titled debut or its follow-up, Sounds Good Feels Good, which featured cheeky hits about putting up with a girlfriend who’s always bitching” and screaming” because she’s kinda hot” — catchy as it was. It was the sound of youth, perfectly captured — utterly smitten by a crush, sneaking out of windows and staying out all night, inevitable heartache. In 2018, it’s the sound of a band that’s still having the time of their lives, but they’re no longer 16.
7. First Single “Out of My Limit” Exploded on YouTube. Essentially, this was the video – a straightforward performance clip soundtracked by a light pop-rock track about unrequited love – that catapulted 5 Seconds of Summer out of the collection of YouTube covers artists, upon its release in late November 2012. Whereas most of their cover clips have earned a few hundred thousand views each on YouTube, the “Out of My Limit” video has 3.5 million views, and set up 5 Seconds of Summer’s spot on tour with One Direction nicely.
Aussies ascending: Listen up, mates. Next in line for the teen heartthrob throne is 5 Seconds of Summer, four Australian lads with perfectly coiffed hair who appear headed for One Direction levels of success. A bold prediction, yes, but the proof is in the numbers: Their She Looks So Perfect EP nearly overtook Frozen’s soundtrack on the Billboard album chart when it debuted in the U.S. on April 1, landing at No. 2 and selling 143,000 copies in its first week.
5 Seconds of Summer, often shortened to 5SOS, are an Australian pop rock band from Sydney, New South Wales, formed in 2011. The group consists of lead vocalist and rhythm guitarist Luke Hemmings, lead guitarist Michael Clifford, bassist Calum Hood, and drummer Ashton Irwin. They were originally YouTube celebrities, posting videos of themselves covering songs from various artists during 2011 and early 2012. They rose to international fame while touring with English-Irish boy band One Direction on their Take Me Home Tour. They have since released three studio albums and headlined three world tours.
The moody yet upbeat track signals a new era for the Australian rockers comprised of lead vocalist Luke Hemmings, bassist Calum Hood, guitarist Michael Clifford, and drummer Ashton Irwin.
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.
They knew there was a concert in the works, and they assumed they’d probably be answering ample interview questions from reporters. But the specifics were a blur for these four young Australians, whose pop-punk band might be the world’s biggest new rock group — if only the grown-ups would take them seriously.
The album was another global #1 but it failed to produce a song as sticky as ‘She Looks So Perfect’ or ‘Amnesia’ even though lead-single ‘She’s Kinda Hot’ was a playful, tongue-in-cheek hit.
Within a few hours of the news breaking, the hashtag #5SOSisGoingToJailParty trended on Twitter. Some Twitter users joked about the issue, posting edited pictures of the bandmates taking mugshots. Other fans stated how ridiculous they felt the whole situation is.
That’s been easy. But now comes the inevitable inflection point: If Hood is resigned to relinquishing control of his minute-to-minute movement, he and his bandmates are trying to take more control of their future with the new album, which Billboard projects will enter its chart next week at No. 1, ahead of the latest by country superstar Carrie Underwood. Louder and a bit darker than the band’s debut, it’s a play for life after teen idol-dom.

In a few short years, 5 Seconds of Summer evolved from a charming pop-punk band to one of the more formidable forces in rock and pop. Formed in Sydney, Australia, by college friends Luke Hemmings, Michael Clifford, Calum Hood, and Ashton Irwin, 5SOS first got a foothold in 2011 with a series of acoustic covers posted to YouTube—a path that helped them build their ravenous fan base from the ground up.

The band were cleverly paired with Julia Michaels for the third single ‘Lie To Me’, introducing us to an even tenderer side of the band. They had never been featured alongside anybody before and Michael’s always-emotional voice brought a depth to the song that the boys just wouldn’t have been able to match five years ago.

Luke Hemmings, from Five Seconds Of Summer, is facing allegations of using escorts and cocaine. The 21-year-old was accused by his ex-girlfriend Arzaylea Rodriguez.
