Hey Violet Talks About Being Mentored By 5 Seconds of Summer: 'They Boosted Our Confidence'

Hey Violet are still really close with 5 Seconds of Summer, seeing as how they’re signed to their label and all.

During an interview with Billboard‘s Pop Shop podcast, the band — Rena Lovelis, Miranda Miller, Nia Lovelis, Casey Moreta, and Iain Shipp — dished about working with 5SOS and how they’ve influenced them.

“I think they boosted our confidence as well a little bit,” Nia shared.

Rena adds, “Definitely. We started out as a very shy band.”

Nia also says that Hey Violet and 5SOS have a really great bond with each other: “They came in and they’re really smart. They’re very passionate about music, and they always wanted to understand us.”

“We’ve always had that kind of friendship and respect between us and it makes it easier. We go on road trips and share demos, and I’m trying to think of the right word… ya, mutual respect.”

Luke and Michael are still working on 5SOS‘s album, which is due out sometime this year. However, some of the demos were leaked.

“Yes I am sad about the leak of some demos, but we will continue to make this album the best one yet,” drummer Ashton Irwin tweeted earlier this year.

Still, we can’t wait to hear 5 Seconds of Summer‘s new music!
