5 Seconds of Summer (5SOS) are back with their brand new single – ‘Want You Back’ – via Capitol Records – and you can listen to it now on the Shoot Music – New Releases Playlist.
‘Want You Back’ – which is also a new addition to the Fantasy Premier League playlist – is 5SOS’ first new single in nearly two years. After 18 months on the road in support of their No. 1 sophomore album ‘Sounds Good Feels Good’, the band have spent the last year living, writing and recording their new album in Los Angeles.
5SOS, who built a loyal and passionate fanbase playing shows around the world, decided to take the new music directly to their fans on the 26 venue 5SOS3 tour, which will kick off on March 20 at Debaser Strand in Stockholm and includes a show at London’s Heaven (April 5).
Hailed as the “biggest new rock act in the world” by Rolling Stone, 5SOS are one of the biggest breakthrough stories of recent years, with over six million albums sold worldwide, 1 + billion Spotify streams and 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 preorder in iTunes history and the biggest US debut by an Australian artist.
Their second album, ‘Sounds Good Feels Good‘, topped the charts in 12 countries, making them the only band in history (not vocal group) to see their first two full-length studio albums debut at the top spot on the US Billboard 200 chart, and the third Australian act in history to have simultaneous No.1 albums in the UK, U.S. and Australia.
Having sold over one million concert tickets around the globe, the multi-award winning band – Michael Clifford (vocals/guitar), Ashton Irwin (vocals/drums), Luke Hemmings, (vocals/guitar) and Calum Hood (vocals/bass) – have sold-out some of the world’s biggest venues, including Madison Square Gardens and London’s O2 Arena.
