New album CALM due March 27th
5 Seconds of Summer (5SOS) has released “Old Me,” its introspective new single. A falsetto-laced reflection on growth and forgiveness, the track is the latest release from 5SOS’s new album C A L M, due out via Interscope Records on March 27th.
“Old me carries a youthful spirit and follows the narrative of a young persons life growing up, for better or for worse,” says lead vocalist Luke Hemmings. “Every decision we made, whether right or wrong, has led us to the men we are proud to be today. We were thrown into the public eye at a young age and gratefully had each other at a confusing time. Sometimes it’s important we look back in order to appreciate the journey we’ve been on together.”
5SOS’s fourth studio album and first full-length for Interscope, C A L M is available for pre-order from all digital retailers. Those who pre-order the album will instantly receive “Old Me” along with the previously released singles “Easier,” “Teeth,” and “No Shame.”
Earlier this year, 5SOS announced the North American leg of their upcoming No Shame 2020 Tour, which will kick off with a trio of dates in Mexico this August. With the first U.S. show taking place on August 19th at Fillmore Auditorium in Denver, the headline run includes dates at Huntington Band Pavilion at Northerly Island in Chicago (August 26th), Boston’s Rockland Trust Bank Pavilion (September 2nd), and FivePoint Amphitheatre in Irvine, California (September 23rd). Those who purchase a ticket will receive a physical copy of C A L M.
The only band (not vocal group) in chart history to see its first three studio albums enter the Billboard 200 at No. 1, 5SOS have sold more than 9.6 million equivalent album units and sold over two million concert tickets worldwide, with cumulative streams of their songs now surpassing seven billion. In addition, they’ve earned a number of prestigious accolades over the years, including an American Music Award, a People’s Choice Award, two iHeartRadio Music Awards, eight MTV European Music Awards, five ARIA Awards, two APRA, and two MTV Video Music Awards.
