“If you don’t know, we (5sos) have taken the past 3 and a half months off to really gather ourselves, and to find where we sit in amongst a normal(-ish) life,” Michael wrote in another Instagram, telling fans that new stuff is on the way after the guys took a much needed vacation.
He adds, “As you can imagine touring for 5 years straight can take a toll on you mentally and physically. and it’s funny, because I even remember our own supporters were telling us that we needed to take a break, because you know us so well that you could literally see it on our faces.”
“To every single one of the people who support 5sos, I absolutely cannot be more excited for the future,” Michael added. “I really do think that our third album is going to be the best of anything we’ve done before.”
“5 years of @5SOS…” Ashton started out on Twitter. “I love to say this and some of you hate to hear it which I love… but we ain’t going NOWHERE, endless love for you all.”
Michaeladds, “happy 5 years to 5SOS. very lucky to be able to spend each day with the 2 nicest guys I know and Calum.”
Calum shared: “Happy birthday to my one and only true love; 5 seconds of summer. Thankyou for supporting us… Some of you since day one. Eternally grateful. I love you. The 3rd album is going to bangin too by the way.”
“This was at our second birthday, our band is now a small child at 5 years old. Thank you for all your support, here…” Lukefinished out with a cute throwback pic.
“It was really scary for us,” Michael shared with the Sacramento Bee recently. “When we started that tour in 2013, no one knew who we were. We kind of had to build that by getting better and better and better live.”
He added, “It was kind of all we cared about for a long time was just how we could become a better live band, play better and have the audience interact more and stuff like that. But coming back to like this year now, we see how many shows we played on that One-D tour and how much it helped us to like craft our performance into what we wanted it to be.”
“Tomorrow is a huge day in 5SOS land. One of the biggest gigs of our career and we have a new song out and it’s all happening,” Ashton wrote on Twitter moments before the song dropped, and ahead of their Madison Square Garden concert TONIGHT!
