“The key is to respect the fans and recognize they’re people like us who love music,” Joel told Billboard.

It’s been almost a year since 5SOS released their last album C A L M on March 27, 2020. Since then, Ashton also released his solo album, Superbloom.

5 Seconds of Summer Reveal How They Filmed 'Wildflower' Music Video In Quarantine

5 Seconds of Summer are revealing their secrets!

The guys – Michael Clifford, Calum Hood, Luke Hemmings and Ashton Irwin – appeared on The Late Late Show with James Corden and dished how they made their “Wildflower” music video while in quarantine separately.

“Our creative director would take a green screen to a house, would disinfect it all, and then would put it at the front, and we would take it and put it up. If you’re with someone in the house, then they would film all the parts. He had a list of things to do, and then he would come back, disinfect the green screen and take it to the next band member’s house,” Luke shared.

Ashton also showed that he still has his “Late Late” tattoo that he got the last time the guys were on the show. The band also performed their song “Wildflower”, which you can see right here!

“In the meantime, hold on to your tickets as we and our team are working quickly to reschedule as many shows as possible and will announce further details very shortly,” 5SOS added. “Keep safe… Thank you so much for your patience, we’ll send another update very soon. All our love. 5SOS”

Ashton Irwin Speaks Out About Billboard Charts After Fans Demand Sales Recount

Ashton Irwin Speaks Out About Billboard Charts After Fans Demand Sales Recount

Ashton Irwin is finally sharing his thoughts about the shipping error that affected 5 Seconds of Summer‘s chart placement after CALM’s debut.

The 25-year-old musician said that he was “apprehensive” to post about the situation for fear of losing “partnership with media outlets” but decided he had to speak out after fans made such an impressive push to get their sales recounted.

“I just want to say I appreciate you contesting and fighting for our number one record in the US. We’re left with the number two spot this week and, may I add, that I think it is absolutely astonishing and incredible that we are even at the top of those charts in the caliber of artists that are there with us,” Ashton said in a video on his Twitter.

He added, “Records were released a week early that we had no control over, which is very disappointing and quite honestly, my heart broke when I found out about that…We lost 10,000 records, it was actually more. We managed to retrieve some that were released early. It was in the 10s of thousands to begin with…Other artists have had records released early before and the charts have been amended. It seems like that’s not going to happen for us…Whether the chart position changes, I am so appreciative for everything you’ve done for us over the past few weeks.”
