Australian pop punk band 5 Seconds of Summer (5SOS)has just announced their “Sounds Live Feels Live” world tour and yup, Malaysia is on the tour grid 😉
Formed in 2011, 5SOS 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.
3 years later, they headlined the Forum in Los Angeles, where they played for 25,000 fans during a sold-out, 2-night stand.
They are considered one of the biggest breakthrough bands of 2014. With 5 multi-million selling singles, their self-titled debut album not only topped the US Album Chart (going to #1 globally on iTunes in 76 countries), but also became the 3rd biggest pre-order in iTunes history and the biggest US debut by an Australian artiste ever.
Titled “Sounds Good Feels Good”, their new album is due to be released on 23rd October 2015. It sees the bands collaborating again with rock veteran John Feldmann who has executively produced the album.
The album is packed with adrenaline-fuelled pop-rock hits that give a nod to their super-rock turn-of-the-millennium US Alt-Rock influences. The band even spent 3 months living together in a studio in LA writing and recording an album that they have poured their hearts and souls into and are very proud of.
A follow-up to their self-titled debut album, “Sounds Good Feels Good” hit the #1 spot on iTunes in 50 different countries within hours of the pre-order going live. They were the #1 act on iTunes worldwide too.
The lead single of the album, “She’s Kinda Hot”, is a lyrically mischievous riot of an anthem that topped the iTunes charts in 41 countries. Their guitar-led new single “Hey Everybody” is also a live favourite and one of many standout tracks from the new album. It is a more mature, more confident all-out rock assault to the senses-crunching guitars, high octane drumming and a belting chorus.
After releasing “Hey Everybody” on 9th October through Capitol Records/Universal Music, 5SOS announced the “Sounds Live Feels Live” tour.
Regarding their upcoming world tour, the band said:
We had such a blast on the “Rock Out With Your Socks Out” Tour. It was a big moment for us – our first ever headline tour, it is what you dream of. We are going to try and make this tour even better than the last and the best live show possible for you guys. This is such a huge thing for us to be able to come and see you all. We can’t wait to play you the new album and loads more, we love you guys and hope you are as excited as we are.
