Fresh new artists are constantly being discovered. As one of them, 5 Seconds of Summer has a great future ahead of them in the musical business. This Australian band is made up of four very talented young men, Luke Hemmings(Lead Vocals, Guitar), Ashton Irwin(Drums, Vocals), Calum Hood(Bass Guitar, Vocals) and Michael Clifford(Guitar, Vocals). The band’s music is considered to be punk/pop.
The band was formed in December of 2011. They started out just singing covers of songs and posting them on YouTube. They were good enough to attract many viewers. Later on, a very well-known band, One Direction, discovered 5 Seconds of Summer and saw great potential for the group. They decided to have 5SOS go on tour with them for their Take Me Home tour that occurred in 2013. The tour gave 5 Seconds of Summer the publicity that they needed to have their careers take off.
5 Seconds of Summer recently released an EP titled “She Looks So Perfect”, and it has been a huge success. The EP gave them the international breakthrough that they have been waiting for since 2011. According to billboard, on April 9, 2014, the “She Looks So Perfect” EP debuted at number 2 on the Billboard 200. 5 Seconds of Summer have been working on their first album, which is said to be released on June 27th.
