From the start, 5 Seconds of Summer – Luke (vocals/guitar), Michael (vocals/guitar), Ashton (vocals/drums) and Calum (vocals/bass) – were united by a love of punk rock music and a vision of bringing it into the pop stratosphere. Released in July 2014, the band’s self-titled debut album entered the Billboard 200 at No. 1 and logged the biggest first-week U.S. sales of any new artist debut of 2014. It topped the iTunes charts in 76 countries and, in five short months, has sold more than two million units worldwide. In the U.S. alone, the band has sold 600,000 albums and over two million single tracks. Praised by The New York Times for their “gleaming pop-punk,” 5 Seconds of Summer took home New Artist of the Year honors at the American Music Awards, an iHeartRadio Music Award for Best Fan Army and received five awards at the 2014 MTV European Music Awards, including Best New Artist. “Don’t Stop” won the award for Best Lyric Video at the MTV Video Music Awards. The band, which played the 2014 iTunes Music Festival and the iHeartRadio Music Festival, performed on the outdoor stage of “The Today Show” to an audience of 15,000 and threw a “Jimmy Kimmel Live” Block Party for more than 4,000 fans. The band will kick off its first-ever North American headline run on July 17, 2015 at the Mandalay Bay Event Center in Las Vegas, NV. The “Rock Out With Your Socks Out Tour” sold out in less than five minutes.
