5 Seconds Of Summer is the only band (not vocal group) in chart history to see its first three full-length studio albums enter the Billboard 200 and ARIA Album Chart at No. 1. Across their catalogue, 5SOS has sold more than 9.6 million equivalent album units and sold over two million concert tickets worldwide, while cumulative streams of their songs now surpass seven billion. 2018 single “Youngblood” recently received the honour of being in ARIA’s top 10 highest selling Australian singles of the decade 2010-2019 and was the highest selling single (including International artists) of 2018 in Australia.
The band’s first single from C A L M, “Easier” landed a spot on Billboard’s list of the 100 Best Songs of 2019. Rolling Stone said of their follow up single; “Teeth” culls from the same well of brooding, ominous industrial rock and nu-metal that inspired their Nine Inch Nails-inspired ‘Easier.’” They partnered with Tom Morello who solos on guitar throughout the entire song and U2’s The Edge also appears on the album. The official video for “Teeth,” has amassed over 36 million views on YouTube.
The band has been recognised with an array of prestigious accolades including an American Music Award, a People’s Choice Award, two iHeartRadio Music Awards, eight MTV European Music Awards, five ARIA Awards, two APRA and two MTV Video Music Awards.
The band recently announced the Australian leg of their No Shame 2020 Tour and were recently in Australia to perform at Fire Fight Australia and promote their upcoming tour.
