Confirmed - 5 Seconds Of Summer Will Release New Music In 2018!

The news we’ve all been waiting for – new music from 5 Seconds of Summer!!!

It’s been almost a year since we’ve had an update from the guys, and now guitarist Michael Clifford is confirming they will release new music early on in the new year, and with a new sound.

“It’s coming along really well. It’s taking a really long time to perfect the new sound and direction we’re taking,” he told Billboard. “I think the reason it’s taken so long is because we haven’t just wanted to get it to a place where we’re, like, happy… We want it to be perfect. I think when all the new stuff comes out, it’s like a departure of our old sound but it still keeps elements of all of the things we liked about it. It was just time for us to change. The studio’s been awesome. We’ve just been slaving away, living in there. We’re at a point now where we’re almost ready to put out our first single.”

“I would say, really, really early in the new year,” he added about the first single.

As for their new sound, Michael said, “It’s really hard to explain what the sound is without actually hearing it. It’s like taking music where it’s at now, and putting our spin on it — making that sound unique. And it’s good. It’s not necessarily more electronic; it’s not just rock… That’s the thing with rock and punk music — it’s always mainly been about energy, you know what I mean? Rock music isn’t just how you play it, it’s the energy that comes from that. And I think we’ve always had that and tried to keep that. And that’s something that conveys pretty well into the new stuff.”
