5 Seconds of Summer release ‘Bad Omens’

Song is from highly anticipated fifth album

5 Seconds of Summer has shared “Bad Omens” from the group’s just-released fifth studio album, 5SOS5. The 19-track album showcases the band’s multi-faceted artistry and growth over their 10-year career, highlighting their dynamic pop-punk sound paired with reflective and intimate lyrics, with the majority of the new album written by the band and Michael Clifford leading on production.

5SOS5 also includes the band’s smash hit “Complete Mess”, an anthemic single that took airwaves by storm as the No. 2 most added at Top 40 Radio with 100+ stations in the first week.

In celebration of the release, 5 Seconds of Summer played an exclusive global livestream The Feeling of Falling Upwards last night (Thurs, Sept 21st) from the world-famous Royal Albert Hall in London. The band performed a set of reimagined versions of songs from their 11-year catalogue, plus new songs from the new album, accompanied by an orchestra and choir.

5SOS5 is the band’s first album to be released independently via BMG. The deluxe CD and digital versions of the album include 19 tracks with cassette and vinyl formats also available.
