“Half of our live shows isn’t about nailing the exact notes,” Michael told the mag. “We’ve never been that type of band; we all f-ck up, and we’re always making mistakes on stage. Except for Calum, he’s the perfect bassist.”
In a new interview with Heat, 5SOS admitted they don’t really talk with One Direction anymore.
“We don’t actually [speak anymore], we’ve been really busy at the moment. I got a nice message from Harry the other day, he said, ‘congratulations on the number one album’ but that’s about it,” Ashton shared.
I can not even believe how many of you in Milan have come to see us at radio stations today!!! What a dream! You guys are amazing, thank you
Luke joked, “I don’t think we are going to win an Oscar for it but it’s an honest representation of our journey and shows who we were as people and who we are now.”
Ashton added, “It’s a really good mix of our story as a band, super funny and sad sometimes. When you are in the bubble of the whole thing you don’t get to step back and see what you’ve done so it’s eye opening when you do.”
It sold 192,000 units in its first week and it’s their second consecutive No. 1 after their 2014 self-titled record.
“To get consecutive number 1 albums in America is a dream come true and we are all incredibly proud. This Number 1 isn’t just for us, it’s for all our fans and to everybody who has supported us. Especially everyone who have been there from the beginning,” 5SOS said. “Our fans have been truly amazing, this is for you. We made an album that is incredibly personal to us and we just hope our fans can relate to it and that it brings a bit of joy to people’s lives. We all can’t wait to play it next year on our tour. Thanks again to everyone who has made this possible.”
