ISBN-10: 1514361868


A Fan’s Fact File


It seemed as if Sydney’s 5 Seconds Of Summer came from out of nowhere. 5SOS have only released one studio album, a live album and a few EPs yet they have nine million Facebook likes, a huge social media following and a largely female fanbase. 5SOS have a devoted fanbase that follows their every move online via the band’s regular social media posts. Their success is a matter of timing, luck, perseverance and the good fortune of having One Direction as one of their biggest fans. Their songs are pretty catchy too.

However, having toured with One Direction on multiple occasions and being so young has meant that they have been labelled a “boy band” which is not the case. They play their own instruments and write their own songs. 5SOS certainly have more in common with pop punk bands than they do with One Direction. Their musical heroes are bands like Green Day, Good Charlotte, All Time Low and Nirvana.

This book charts 5 Seconds Of Summer’s rapid rise to success, details their musical influences and offers a handy reference guide to the band’s main achievements.

Pop Punk From Down Under is essential reading for 5 Seconds Of Summer fans.
