Australian pop/rock band 5SOS (5 SECONDS OF SUMMER) dominates Australian Charts with new single ‘Youngblood’, claiming No. 1 position on the ARIA Singles Chart, as announced this afternoon. It is ARIA’s first Australian chart-topping single of 2018. This success follows a No. 1 on the Apple Music Song Chart, the only local act to achieve this feat. ‘Youngblood’ is the band’s second ARIA Number One single following ‘She Looks So Perfect’ in 2014.
5SOS is in Australia for a high-profile promotional tour ahead of the release of third studio album, YOUNGBLOOD on June 22. This week they announced their Meet You There national tour for August of this year, with tickets on sale now. These all ages live dates will give fans the opportunity to hear new tracks ‘Want You Back’ and ‘Youngblood’, alongside old favourites like ‘She Looks So Perfect’, ‘Amnesia’ and more!
The Meet You There tour will kick off at Sydney’s Hordern Pavilion on August 9, followed by Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre on August 11, Festival Hall in Melbourne on August 13, Adelaide’s Thebarton Theatre on August 16 and concluding at HBF Stadium in Perth on August 18.
New single ‘Youngblood’ is dominating Australian charts – No. 1 on the ARIA Singles Chart, iTunes, Shazam and Apple Music, No. 2 on Spotify, and is a GLOBAL top 30 record. ‘Want You Back,’ the first single from the “Youngblood” album, debuted at No. 1 on iTunes in over 18 countries and has amassed more than 93 million streams worldwide.
Hailed as the “biggest new rock act in the world” by Rolling Stone, 5SOS is the only band (not vocal group) in history to see its first two full-length studio albums enter the Billboard200 at No. 1. 5SOS’s self-titled debut album has sold more than three million units worldwide, with 1.5 million albums and more than 4.5 million single tracks sold in the U.S. alone. 2015’s “Sounds Good Feels Good” charted at No. 1 in 12 countries, including Australia, the U.S. and the U.K. ‘She’s Kinda Hot,’ the album’s first single, topped the iTunes charts in 44 countries.
5SOS – comprising Luke Hemmings (vocals/guitar), Michael Clifford (vocals/guitar), Calum Hood (vocals/ bass) and Ashton Irwin (vocals/drums) – has won an American Music Award, a People’s Choice Award, an iHeartRadio Music Award, five MTV European Music Awards, two ARIA Awards and an MTV Video Music Award.
