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!

5 Seconds of Summer Announce Their UK & European Tour Is Postponed

5 Seconds of Summer has some rather disappointing, but expected news to share…

The guys – Michael Clifford, Luke Hemmings, Calum Hood and Ashton Irwin – shared on Twitter that their UK and European tour, set to start in May, is officially postponed.

5SOS‘ news comes as no surprise, as pretty much all concerts and tours are being canceled or postponed amid the Coronavirus pandemic.

“While playing our ‘No Shame Tour’ this year still remains uncertain, what is clear is that Banquet Records and a number of our upcoming UK and European dates will be postponed due to the ongoing health crisis,” they wrote in a note. “We were so excited to play these shows and see everyone but our priority is always the safety of our fans, venue staff and touring crew.”

“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.”

5 Seconds of Summer Fans Want US Music Charts Recounted After 'CALM' Shipping Error

5 Seconds of Summer Fans Want US Music Charts Recounted After 'CALM' Shipping Error

5 Seconds of Summer fans are campaigning to get music charts to recount the band’s first week sales after a shipping error.

Prior to the release of CALM, the group – Michael Clifford, Ashton Irwin, Luke Hemmings and Calum Hood – revealed that thousands of their albums were accidentally shipped out early by a warehouse.

Since the albums were given to the public early, they would not be counted towards the band’s first week sales due to Billboard‘s longstanding policy to reflect album sale activity in the tracking week that the paying customer receives the album.

“We still wanna make our album chart next week as big as possible and want to thank you all so much, to everyone that is streaming or has bought the album,” the band wrote on their Instagram.

Unfortunately, the 10,000 albums separated the band from the top spot, leading the album to chart at number two. While they didn’t top the charts in the US, they did go number one in both the United Kingdom and Australia.

Since then, fans have been asking Billboard to reconsider. The outlet has not yet repelled their decision.

Even if the guys didn’t get the number one spot in the US, we’re still super proud of their sucess!

5 Seconds of Summer's 'CALM' Album is a Nod to Fans - Listen!

5 Seconds of Summer's 'CALM' Album is a Nod to Fans - Listen!

5 Seconds of Summer has released their new album CALM – to make sure you’re feeling the right vibes while social distancing.

The group – Michael Clifford, Luke Hemmings, Calum Hood, and Ashton Irwin – dropped their fourth studio album on Friday (March 27).

The 12-track project includes their previously released songs “Wildflower,” “Easier,” “Teeth,” “No Shame,” and “Old Me.”

“The album title came from the first letters of all of our names,” Luke told the New York Post. “And it’s also a nod to our fans that coined us that name in our early days. They’ve been using that acronym for a long time. It kind of just sums up [that] we’re a little bit older and a little bit wiser . . . But it was named before this went down, obviously.”

“We were gonna go all over the world, do all these kinds of things, and then we just couldn’t,” he added. “But honestly, we wanted the album out really badly. We were waiting a long time for it to come out.”

Luke has also called the album “a journey through a young man’s life, for better or for worse.” Calum adds, “These new songs feel like something we could keep playing for the next 10 years, or even beyond that. It feels like our first album—like we finally found what we’d been trying to achieve since the beginning of this band.”
