5 Seconds of Summer

Recommended Posts

i don't know why it's taken me so long to make this thread and i don't even know what to say tbh but anyway here goes.

5SOS are an australian band who basically started when luke hemmings began posting acoustic covers on his youtube. eventually three other boys (michael clifford, calum hood, and ashton irwin) joined him. the group were then noticed by one mr. louis tomlinson, who started tweeting about them and invited them to tour with one direction this year. i'm sure a lot of people will use that connection with 1D to rule them out but they're actually a really great pop rock band very similar to others i'm sure most people here enjoy. they've been working on their debut album with the likes of all time low and yellowcard.

 

their most recent single (is it officially a single? idk) is wherever you are and the video is actually quite cute.

 

pretty sure this was their first single from their debut EP and one of my favourite songs of theirs.

 

and just for the hell of it, here's a mashup of what makes you beautiful and one thing they did.

Their cover of Blink 182's "I Miss You" is pretty good as well:

 

And I'm glad Alex Gaskarth is working with them; can't wait to see what they come up with!

So I listened to some of the EP and  :willy_nilly: "The Only Reason" is my favorite.

I'll definitely be preordering it.

I guess they were hanging out at All Time Low's London gig last week. It would be really cool if they did a tour together.

the EP debuted at number 2 on the billboard chart in the US and i'm pretty sure it was number 1 in the UK, that's so amazing i'm so happy for these boys

found this gem of a photo while creeping ashton's instagram the other night

i'm sure a fan just gave them the sign for ashton's sake but i'd love to know if they actually listened to them afterwards
