5SOS announce US support acts: Here’s everything you need to know about Hey Violet, Roy English and One OK Rock

5SOS have just announced their support acts for the US leg of their tour and we’re actually a bit jealous because it’s a pretty sick line up.

If you’re unfamiliar with the acts, we’ve done all the research for you.

Hey Violet


The 5SOS Fam will have heard of Hey Violet AKA the first ever band that 5SOS signed to their record label, Hi or Hey Records. Rena, Nia, Miranda and Casey were the support act on three of four legs of the ‘Rock Out With Your Socks Out’ tour last year and have since been in the studio hard at work in hopes to release new music later this year. We’re super excited to see them back on the road with our favourite Aussies!

One OK Rock

One Ok Rock

One OK Rock are a Japanese  rock band who formed back in 2005. After their original guitarist left in 2009, the band became a four-piece, consisting of Taka, Toru, Ryota and Tomoya. They have since grown at a fast pace, becoming one of the most popular Japanese rock bands. Not bad, eh?

Roy English

Roy English

Roy English is a record producer, singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist who hails from Los Angeles, California. Roy has worked with legends in the music industry such as Jeff Bhasker (Kanye West), S1 (Beyonce, Kanye West) and Teddy Riley (Michael Jackson). Formally a member of indie-rock band, Eye Alaska, English is now working solo and is a great friend of 5SOS’s, so there’s no doubt that we’ll see lots of banter behind the scenes!
