Biography

Australian rock band 5 Seconds of Summer makes ebullient, high-energy music that straddles the line between '90s punk-pop and 2000s boy band pop. Formed in 2011, the band features fellow Norwest Christian College grads Luke Hemmings (lead vocals/guitar), Michael Clifford (guitar/vocals), Calum Hood (bass/vocals), and Ashton Irwin (drums/vocals). They uploaded several videos to YouTube and quickly caught the attention of Sony, which signed the band to a publishing deal. In 2012, 5 Seconds of Summer released two EPs, Unplugged and Somewhere New. The following year, they received a further boost after being asked to open for Britain's One Direction on tour, and shortly thereafter signed with Capitol Records. In 2014, a third EP was released, She Looks So Perfect, and their debut album, 5 Seconds of Summer, followed soon afterward. It promptly hit number one in the charts of more than a dozen countries around the globe. In late 2014, the band wrapped up a world tour and released the live concert album LIVESOS, which featured a cover of the Romantics 1980 hit, "What I Like About You." Following a break, they traveled to Los Angeles to work with producer John Feldmann (the Used, All-Time Low, Plain White T's), who'd previously helmed most of the group's debut album.--more--um. In 2015, Five Seconds of Summer delivered their second full-length studio album, Sounds Good Feels Good, which found the group collaborating on songs with Good Charlotte's Benji and Joel Madden, All-Time Low's Alex Gaskarth, the Monsters & the Strangerz, and others. The album included the song "Permanent Vacation," which they had introduced while on tour, as well as the lead single, "She's Kinda Hot." ~ Matt Collar
