The combination of pop punk energy and ebullient boy band karisma broke Australia's 5 seconds of summer on the international music scene in the early 2010s, attracting fans with anthemic hook-oriented songs that helped land their self-named 2014 debut on number one on the pop-cards. While the follow-up album Sounds Good Feels Good has maintained its guitar-based sound – with 5 seconds of summer's other Australian and American charts ̵
Created in 2011, contains 5 seconds of the summer Luke Hemmings (concert / guitar), Michael Clifford (guitar / vocal), Calum Hood (bass / vocal) and Ashton Irwin (drums / vowels). In the beginning, a YouTube sensation for its acoustic covers of hit songs by Mike Posner, Ed Sheeran, Justin Bieber and others quickly became the attention of Sony and signed a publishing agreement that releases two 2012 EP, Unplugged and Somewhere New. The following year, they received a further boost after they were asked to open for One Direction on tour, and shortly after signing with Capitol Records. A third EP, she looks so perfect, arrived in 2014.
A year later, they launched their debut album, 5 seconds this summer, which quickly hit number one on charts of more than a dozen countries around the world. A world tour followed as they released the live concert album LIVESOS, which featured a cover of Romantics' 1980 hits "What I Like About You." After a break, they traveled to Los Angeles to work with producer John Feldmann, who had previously helmet most of the group's debut album.
In 2015, 5 Seconds of Summer delivered his second full-length studio album, Sounds Good Feels Good, who found the group collaborating on songs with Good Charlottes Benji and Joel Madden, All-Time Lows Alex Gaskarth, The Monsters & the Strangerz and others. Included were the songs "Permanent Vacation", which they had introduced while on tour, the single single "She's Kinda Hot" and "Jet Black Heart" management. At the release, the album went to number one in the US, US and Australia the same day. The group started a world tour that featured over a hundred shows, including stops in Asia, Europe, North America and their native Australia. At the end of the Sounds Live Feels Live hunt in late 2016, they returned to the studio to record album number three.
In 2018, the band released YOUNGBLOOD. Produced by Carl Falk, Rami Yacoub, Sir Nolan and others, it found 5 seconds of summer to commit to a more sophisticated dance popping sound as they had suggested on Sounds Good Feels Good. Supported by the "Want You Back" and "Youngblood" songs, the album became the third consecutive full-length studio effort to hit number one on Billboard 200.
