5 Seconds Of Summer Biography:
From the start, 5 Seconds of Summer – comprising Luke (vocals/guitar), Michael (vocals/guitar), Ashton (vocals/drums) and Calum (vocals/bass) – were united by a love of punk rock music and a vision of bringing it into the pop stratosphere. They played their first gig together in late 2011, performing for about a dozen people at a hotel in their hometown of Sydney, Australia. Three years later, they were headlining the Forum in Los Angeles, where they played for 25,000 fans during a sold-out, two-night stand.
5 Seconds of Summer’s self-titled debut album entered the Billboard 200 at No. 1 in July of 2014 and topped the iTunes charts in 76 countries. It has since sold more than two million units worldwide – with 600,000 albums and more than 4.5 million single tracks sold in the U.S. alone. In December 2014, 5 Seconds of Summer released the 15-track LIVESOS, which captured the band’s live performances of hits like “She Looks So Perfect,” “Amnesia” and “Good Girls.”
Praised by The New York Times for their “gleaming pop-punk,” 5 Seconds of Summer have won an American Music Award, a People’s Choice Award, five MTV European Music Awards and an MTV Video Music Award. After touring extensively with One Direction, 5 Seconds of Summer made plans for their first U.S. headline arena/amphitheatre run, the Rock Out With Your Socks Out tour, which kicks off in July 2015.
