Biography


Australian pop punk and pop rock band 5 Seconds of Summer was formed in Sydney in 2011. It consists of Luke Hemmings (lead vocals, guitar), Michael Clifford (guitar, vocals), Calum Hood (bass guitar, vocals) and Ashton Irwin (drums, vocals). Hemmings, Clifford and Hood all attended Norwest Christian College. In 2011, they began posting YouTube videos of themselves covering songs from various artists. Their cover of Chris Brown's "Next to You" received over 600,000 views. In December 2011, they were joined by drummer Irwin. Their videos caught the attention of Sony which later signed them to a publishing deal. They released their first EP titled "Unplugged". Despite only promoting it on Facebook and Twitter, the EP reached number 3 on the iTunes chart in Australia and the Top 20 in both New Zealand and Sweden.

5 Seconds of Summer spent the second half of 2012 writing and developing their sound with Christian Lo Russo and Joel Chapman of Australian band Amy Meredith, with whom they wrote two of the songs that appear in the "Somewhere New" EP, "Beside You" and "Unpredictable". The EP was also co-produced by Joel Chapman. 5 Seconds of Summer released their first single "Out of My Limit" on 19 November 2012 and the video clip for the song received over 100,000 views within the first 24 hours. In December 2012, the boys embarked on a songwriting trip to London, writing with various artists including McFly, Roy Stride of Scouting for Girls, Nick Hodgson of Kaiser Chiefs, Jamie Scott, Jake Gosling, Steve Robson and James Bourne of Busted.
