5 Seconds of Summer are officially ready for US domination!
The Australian quartet will be releasing their self-titled debut album next month and they’ve just announced how they’ll be celebrating – on the Today Show! 5SOS will be performing on the Today Show Plaza on July 22 and we have a feeling there will be tons of fans in the audience.
The album pre-order has already landed at No. 1 on the iTunes Album chart in 14 countries upon reveal, while each of the instant grat tracks hit No.1 on the singles charts and continue to outsell each other.
The Aussie quartet recently made their U.S. television debut on the Billboard Music Awards and the hashtag #5SOSBBMAs trended worldwide at #1 across Twitter. “Aussie pop-punk boy band 5 Seconds of Summer is a charming blend of all the pre-emo pseudo-punky bands that charmed us in the early 2000s,” exclaimed Rolling Stone.com, citing their performance as one of the best of the night.
This anticipated release follows on the heels of the band’s debut EP She Looks So Perfect that hit No. 1 on the iTunes Album chart in 58 countries, as well as No. 2 on the Billboard Top 200 in the States.
Be sure to mark those calendars for July 22! Also, the band will hit the road with One Direction in the US beginning August 1.
