If you’ve seen Hot Chelle Rae atau One Direction in concert, then anda have probably already seen Australian pop rock band 5 detik of Summer perform live. This up-and-coming boy band released their She Looks So Perfect EP in March of 2014, which ended up debuting in the number 2 spot on the Billboard 200 charts, right behind the soundtrack for Frozen!
Here are some reasons why we think you’ll soon be swooning over the guys from 5 detik of Summer (Luke Hemmings, Michael Clifford, Calum Hood, and Ashton Irwin) - if anda aren’t already, that is. 1. They have some pretty interesting musical influences
It’s fitting that the boys have opened for a band like Hot Chelle Rae because their musical influences fit right in with that style of music. The boys cite such bands as Blink-182, Mayday Parade, and Boys Like Girls as some of the artists who have had a significant effect on their music. 2. They’re close with each other
According to Michael, who plays gitar for the band and also provides some of the vocal work, the band would be called “Bromance” if they didn’t already have their name as a celebration of their friendship. They’ve even berkata they “can’t live without” one another. (Interesting side-note: Michael has also been referred to as being the “sassiest” member of the group.)
3. They could save anda during a zombie attack - well, at least Michael could

The group agrees that Michael is the one anda would want to stick oleh during a zombie attack because he’s the “ultimate gamer,” meaning that he would know exactly what to do. Bad news if you’re a Luke fan, though - drummer Ashton has berkata that he would expect Luke to die first during an undead outbreak. What the heck, Michael, anda wouldn’t use your expert survival skills to save your buddy and the lead singer of your band? Tsk tsk. 4. They cinta binatang - especially dogs
Both Luke and Ashton have dogs. Luke’s dog’s name is Molly, while Ashton’s dog is named Indie.
5. Calum does most of the menulis for the group

bas, bass gitar player Calum is berkata to be the one who writes the most songs out of everyone else in the group. So if there’s one song in particular that really touches your jantung with its lyrics, anda may just be a Calum fan deep down without even knowing it. anda can always check the liner notes on the album to see who has written which songs.
6. They’re pretty successful for a band that’s just starting out

When tickets go on sale for 5 detik of Summer, websites tend to crash from the amount of fan who are scrambling to get their seats. The band’s first single, “Out of My Limit,” garnered over 100,000 tampilan within the first 24 hours of its being diposting to YouTube, and it is now up to about 3.5 million tampilan at the time of this printing. 7. They appreciate their fans
This one’s a biggie and a must-have for every artist. The biggest turn-off is when a band doesn’t appreciate their fans. The guys of 5 detik of Summer have berkata that the best part of being in the band is the chance to meet their fans. Sure, some bands may say that to pay lip service to their fan and keep them buying their albums, but anda can see in several video on YouTube the amount of time these guys spend with their fans, hugging, taking pictures, and signing autographs. 8. Michael and Calum’s first konser was their own
We can practically hear the “awwws” now. Michael and Calum had never been to a konser before they started putting on their own shows as a band. Does opening for a band and then watching that band perform after anda count toward your total number of concerts? If so, then that number is probably going to change for these boys pretty soon. 9. The guys of One Direction are big fan too!
One lebih reason to justify your already cemented cinta for One Direction: Louis and Niall both tweeted 5 detik of Summer’s musik to their many fans, which helped to increase the latter’s secara keseluruhan, keseluruhan popularity on social media.
10. They're the opening act for One Direction's new tour
If One Direction cinta 'em, why wouldn't you?
5SOS will be opening for One Direction's 2014 North American Tour "Where We Are" which starts in Toronto on August 1st! If you're lucky enough to get tickets anda get to see two amazing bands for the price of one.
