The exploration never stops with 5 Seconds of Summer’s ‘5SOS5’

The long wait is over! 5 Seconds of Summer on Friday, September 23rd, dropped their fifth studio album, ‘5SOS5.’ The four-piece band from the land down under shared that this recent release featured their “journey of friendship, brotherhood, [and] exploration of self-identity.”

5SOS, which includes members Calum Hood (26), Ashton Irwin (28), Luke Hemmings (26), and Michael Clifford (26), announced across their social media platforms how this era signified “creative freedom and a liberation of the bands truest voice to date.” With 19 meaningful soundtracks, 5SOS5 is the longest recording of the Aussie musicians so far. This allows the listeners to get a hold of their discoveries, reflections, and individual growth these past few years.

As the band continued to develop their artistic abilities, the passion in them did not waver. 5SOS5, as the prime example, uncovered a series of circumstances that the boys experienced, especially in getting through the pandemic. It also showed how the members acquired some kind of breathing space from the amazing artists they collaborated with. For the 5 Seconds of Summer’s bassist, Calum Hood, this particular experience has been the “most rewarding” ever.

5SOS5 has been the most rewarding experience and birthed in the desert of Joshua Tree, the core of the album derived from quieting the mind and allowing the band’s soul to speak. It’s a living, breathing thing made up of the most beautiful light and dark parts of ourselves. 5SOS5 is the truest representation of 5 Seconds of Summer.”

Meanwhile, in honor of their fifth-studio album 5SOS5, 5 Seconds of Summer performed The Feeling of Falling Upwards. This was an exclusive global livestream last Thursday, September 22nd, at London’s illustrious Royal Albert Hall. According to the Australian band, this was their way of involving the people supporting them all over the world. Besides the reimagined songs, 5SOS also gifted the fans with their performance of several tracks from the most recent album.

“This will be a show like nothing we have ever done before and what’s so special is we actually busked just outside the Royal Albert Hall back in 2013 to a few ‘day one’ fans! To now play a show there, at one of the most iconic venues in the world is a really unique moment and one we felt was the perfect way to commemorate the new album,” the band’s Instagram account captioned.

You can stream the 5SOS5 album anywhere in the world via music platforms like YouTube and Spotify. Moreover, its deluxe CD and digital versions, include vinyl and the band’s merchandise. Interested now in purchasing all these? Go and visit 5 Seconds of Summer’s official website.
