5 Seconds of Summer Could Make History With New Album 'Youngblood'

5 Seconds of Summer Could Make History With New Album 'Youngblood'

5 Seconds of Summer are on the verge of making chart history this week with their newest album, Youngblood.

Luke Hemmings, Calum Hood, Michael Clifford and Ashton Irwin could be the first ever band to have each of their albums debut at number 1 on the Billboard charts.

Beyonce and Jay-Z‘s surprise album is the only thing that might get in the way of that.

The guys have been tweeting loads of thanks to their fans for all the support for their new album, even if they don’t get that #1.

“I am have a solitary moment of great-fullness, and I am letting go of the numbers games that come with art sometimes,” Ashton wrote on Twitter. “A number 1 album would be amazing. But at the heart of this incredible situation, I am just happy people are listening. Thank you everyone for just.. listening”

However, Michael is kind of stoked about the numbers and the potential to make chart history.

He added, “to think that 4 dudes from Western Sydney could even have a chance against two of the most successful artists of all time is insane. we would be the first band in history to have our first three albums go #1 in the US. we are so close. 5sos fam for life.”

Crossing fingers for the guys!

5 Seconds of Summer Talk How Their Break Between Albums Helped Them Make 'Youngblood'

5 Seconds of Summer Talk How Their Break Between Albums Helped Them Make 'Youngblood'

5 Seconds of Summer stop by The Elvis Duran Z100 Morning Show ahead of their concert later on in New York City on Friday (June 15).

The guys – Luke Hemmings, Calum Hood, Michael Clifford and Ashton Irwin – recently opened up about the decision to take a break from the band and how it helped them with Youngblood.

“I think mentally we were all a bit burned out after working for four years straight,” Calum shared. “We were surrounded by noise for four years, and we came off that tour and had four months off, and for the first time ever it was just silent. We were thrown out in LA and told, ‘all right, go and build your lives again’. So at that time we were all very lost.”

He adds, “It was hard to rebuild your personal life from the ground up. What drove the new album lyrically and sonically, is us regathering and rediscovering who we were as individuals, but also who 5 Seconds of Summer are and what message we wanted to portray.”

Having that break though, helped them come back with an amazing new album.

“It feels like it’s exactly who we are,” Luke says. “A band we’re comfortable with in our twenties.”
