Australian superstars 5 Seconds of Summer (5SOS) have signed a new global recordings deal with BMG.

Formed in 2011, 5 Seconds of Summer is a multi-platinum pop/rock band featuring Luke Hemmings (vocals/guitar), Michael Clifford (vocals/guitar), Calum Hood (vocals/bass), and Ashton Irwin (vocals/drums). 

The band have sold over 2.5 million concert ticket and amassed over 8 billion streams, recently joining Spotify’s exclusive Billions Club with their hit single Youngblood.

5SOS were the first band in Billboard 200 history to see their first three studio albums debut at No.1 in the Nielsen era, with 5 Seconds of Summer in 2014, Sounds Good Feels Good (2015) and Youngblood in 2018, when the band was signed to Capitol Records UK for the world.

The band released their fourth album, Calm, via Interscope in 2020.

Following the release of the group’s third album, Youngblood, 5SOS became the first UK-signed act to have their first three albums go to No.1 on Capitol Records in the US since The Beatles.

This year marks their 10th anniversary together.

“We are both proud and excited to be sharing this next chapter with the team at BMG.”
