Watch 5 Seconds of Summer Get Candid in Behind the Scenes Tour Footage
Last month, 5 Seconds of Summer excited fans by releasing "Want You Back," their first single in two years. The Aussie pop rockers then went one step further and announced that their third studio record, Youngblood, would be coming out June 22 via Capitol Records. Last week, they revealed the album artwork, track listing and a snippet of the title track.
In anticipation of the new album, 5SOS took a quick jaunt through Europe to test out new material, making stops in Stockholm, Antwerp, Cologne and Amsterdam. On Tuesday (April 17), the group released a seven-minute-long clip that takes fans behind the scenes of their latest tour.
The video begins with the foursome being asked what they want from 2018. Bassist/vocalist Calum Hood hopes "for this year to grant us creative freedom with our music.” Drummer Ashton Irwin hopes "for people to understand where we are as people.” Guitarist Michael Clifford wants "people to feel like they're watching a new band.” And lead vocalist/rhythm guitarist wants "people to come see our new music and feel it the way I feel it.”
From there, it's a flurry of live footage, airport shots, sold out, screaming crowds and the quartet interacting with diehard fans. Watch the full mini-documentary below.
