5 Seconds of Summer emerge from an underwater cavern in their new “Easier” music video.

“‘Easier’ is the most confident we have been in the first song to be released off one of our records,” Luke shared of the track. “Visually and sonically it feels like we took what we uncovered about ourselves as a band on the last album and honed in on that sound and aura.”

He adds, “I truly believe that ‘Easier’ is the beginning of the best era for 5SOS.”

Earlier in the week, 5SOS launched a new clothing line called Friends of Friends, to help support charitable organizations.

“The Ultimate goal for Friends Of Friends is for it to travel with us co-existing with our tours and donates to regional charities depending on where we are in the world. Friends Of Friends will support artists of all kinds, and be a platform for people to be themselves and showcase whatever art they’ve made. Most of all, Friends Of Friends will grow into something we don’t even understand yet. Let’s make a positive impact on an increasingly dark world. You’re the light,” Ashton wrote on his Twitter.

The current limited edition run will support Safe Place for Youth, which aims to inspire and empower the resilient spirit of homeless youth by providing immediate and lasting solutions.
