5 Seconds of Summer

5 Seconds of Summer is an Australian pop-punk boy band that was named New Artist of the Year at the 2014 American Music Awards. The group’s biggest hits include “She Looks So Perfect” and “She’s Kinda Hot.” The band is comprised of Luke Hemmings (lead vocals/guitar), Michael Clifford (guitar/vocals), Calum Hood (bass/vocals), and Ashton Irwin (drums/vocals), all of whom graduated from Norwest Christian College in New South Wales, Australia.

5SOS, as they are known online and to fans, formed in 2011 and began by uploading videos of cover songs to YouTube. Its members quickly became Internet celebrities. The group’s first performance was in front of only 20 people. Clifford is credited with thinking up the band’s name. The other members all hated it at first.

After releasing two EPs, “Unplugged” and “Somewhere New,” the band toured as an opening act for One Direction. Their debut album, “5 Seconds of Summer,” was released in 2014. A followup, titled “Sounds Good Feels Good,” came out in 2015. In June 2015 Clifford suffered severe burns when he was hit in the face by pyrotechnics while performing on stage at Wembley Arena. The guitarist revealed during another concert months later that he was battling mental illness and had been consulting with a therapist.

Clifford briefly dated “Little Miss Sunshine” actress Abigail Breslin in 2014 and was the inspiration for her debut single, “You Suck.” In 2015, Irwin confirmed he was romantically involved with former Playboy Playmate Bryana Holly. That same year, 5SOS were awarded their first MTV Video Music Award for Best Summer Song (“She’s Kinda Hot”).
