Introducing 5 Seconds of Summer
Move over One Direction.. Our new favorite boy band, ‘5 Seconds of Summer’, has gradually moved up to the billboard charts, thanks to hits such as “She Looks So Perfect,” “Don’t Stop” and “Amnesia.”
The Australian quartet, which consist of Luke Hemmings (lead vocals, guitar), Michael Clifford (guitar, vocals), Calum Hood (bass guitar, vocals) and Ashton Irwin (drums, vocals) has already put its 2015 arena tour dates on sale.
The band formed together in December 2011 and began posting performances of their favorite songs on YouTube. They built a small and loyal following that grew as it signed a publishing deal and released an “Unplugged” EP in June 2012 that hit No. 3 on the iTunes chart in Australia.
“It’s amazing,” Clifford says. “When you start a band you kind of just do it for fun, and you can never expect stuff that’s going to happen. So when it does happen, it’s just amazing.
“When we started I always just assumed that the U.S. was out of reach, and it’s nice to know there are people here who like us and want to hear the music. That’s incredible.”
