Here’s the latest news and gossip from 5SOS land brought to you by Rebecca from @5SOSReport
In the last few days leading up to the release of their debut album, 5SOS have been releasing lots of new songs and sneak peeks to keep us all on our toes with anticipation!
The band released ‘Amnesia’ to those who had preordered their album, which quickly rose to #1 on iTunes in many countries, including the UK and Australia!
The boys also released a video talking about how they came to acquire ‘Amnesia’, which was written by the Madden Brothers of Good Charlotte, and how it is the only track on the entire album which they did not write themselves.

Extended previews of many songs from the album have also been released on iTunes in some countries recently, including clips of new songs such as ‘Never Be’, ‘Long Way Home’, ‘Social Casualty’, ‘English Love Affair’, and ‘End Up Here’, along with old favorites such as ’18’, ‘Lost Boy’, ‘Voodoo Doll’ and ‘Green Light’!
All of the new songs (and new recordings of old songs!) sound absolutely incredible, and are doing a wonderful job of making us excited for the album!
This morning the album sampler was uploaded to YouTube, get your yappers around this!
The 5 Seconds of Summer boys have also given us a little throw back with a video of an acoustic performance of ‘Voodoo Doll’, recordered for VEVO’s One Mic, One Take. The song was recorded about 9 months ago in Los Angeles when ‘Wherever You Are’ was filmed!
There’s also this ‘Everything I Didn’t Say’.
They also announced a Google Livestream on Tuesday, July 1st at 9PM GMT to help celebrate the release of their album! Make sure to tune in to see what crazy shenanigans the boys pull this time, as it won’t be a 5SOS livestream without some technical difficulties and hilarious commentary!
