5 Seconds Of Summer - The Band You Should Be Obsessing Over

Last year

5 Seconds Of Summer are the latest young band to make it big online -- and after seeing you guys talk about them all the time on Twitter, we thought it was about time we got into them as well.

5SOS are four teenage boys aged 15 - 17 from the western suburbs of Sydney. They are Luke Hemmings, Michael Clifford, Calum Hood and Ashton Irwin. They play their own music and sing, and they are pretty damn good at it! They're young now, but we think they are going to be huge.

These guys have been around for a while now, and have built up a steady following through their YouTube uploads. They have over 32,000 subscribers, and have racked up more than 3 million views. Not bad for a group of boys recording covers in their lounge rooms!

They also have a seriously big fan base. Tickets to their upcoming Sydney and Melbourne shows sold out in minutes -- that's with almost no promotion apart from social media.

What do you guys think? Are you into 5SOS? Check out some of their videos below!

You can get more info on these guys at and follow them on Twitter at

UPDATE: So since we wrote this article in May 2012 (the first article on the entire internet, clearly we discovered them first), 5SOS have absolutely exploded onto the music scene and have been announced as One Direction's support act on their world tour.
