Catapulting to fame early last decade thanks in no small part to their association and tour with mega famous former boyband One Direction, Australia’s 5 Seconds of Summer have always been something of an oddity, towing the line between the slick yet scrappy pop punk bands of the later ’00s and a more conventional mainstream pop act. Though earlier records leaned into their youthful enthusiasm for pop punk (and even tapped several artists from that scene for writing and production), more recently, they’ve shifted towards a more decisively pop bent, as evidenced on 2018 third LP Youngblood, and a recent tour with The Chainsmokers.
Where 5SOS takes their sound next remains to be seen (though we shouldn’t have to wait long, with promises of new music on the way), but where they’ll take themselves next just became a lot more clear, with the announcement of a headlining summer tour of North America. The group previously headlined Bridgestone Arena (right at the peak of their One Direction-fueled breakthrough), and most recently Cannery Ballroom, but this time around they’ll head up Ascend Amphitheater for the first time, on Sept. 13, with support from Nashville based The Band Camino (who, themselves, are in the midst of breaking out in a major way).
