Their debut album hasn’t even hit the stores yet… but 5 Seconds Of Summer (aka 5SOS) is one of the biggest new bands in the world! The group is composed of four handsome teens from Sydney, Australia: Luke Hemmings (Lead Vocals & Guitar), Michael Clifford (Guitar), Calum Hood (Bass) & Ashton Irwin (Drums).
Their debut E.P., “She Looks So Perfect”, stormed the charts – making them number one in several countries including Canada, Australia and the U.K.! And it’s all thanks to One Direction’s Louis Tomlinson. Ashton tells ET Canada: “[5SOS] were sort of doing our own thing in Australia for awhile. And we were touring around and we did national tours and stuff. And we made it over to New Zealand and that’s about as far as we got.” Calum adds, “[Louis] contacted us and he was like ‘We should tour’ and we were like ‘Oh my, that’s a big step!'”
After opening for One Direction in 2013 – the boys caught the attention of girls around the globe… something the band isn’t used to… yet! Luke jokes: “No girls liked us where we were from! So it’s like the weird thing that girls kind of like us now… they just weren’t into the whole musician thing!” Laughing, Ashton adds, “It’s so weird! I don’t understand. We were really unattractive to girls where we live… if you were a footballer, you were a rock God!”
