Australian pop-rock band 5 Seconds of Summer will return to the city this summer on “The 5 Seconds of Summer Show” tour.
The band announced a tour along with the release of their new live album, The Feeling of Falling Upwards – Live from The Royal Albert Hall. The album consists of reimagined versions of songs from their catalogue, new songs from their fifth studio album, 5SOS5, with a 12-piece string orchestra and a 12-member gospel choir from the band's performance at Royal Albert Hall in London, according to a press release.
The group started their careers by uploading song covers to YouTube in 2011, which eventually earned them a deal with Capitol Records and a spot as openers for One Direction’s “Take Me Home Tour” in 2013. In 2014, the band would release the EP Don’t Stop with the hit single “She Looks So Perfect,” followed by their debut album 5 Seconds Of Summer.
“'The Feeling of Falling Upwards’ is simply supposed to describe to you the feeling that we have experienced together, the feeling of taking a leap of faith on such a fickle thing like music,” Ashton Irwin, vocalist and drummer for 5 Seconds of Summer, says in the press release. “And sharing this experience together year after year, season after season of our lives.”
5 Seconds of Summer will be performing at Riverbend Music Center on Aug. 26.
Tickets will go on sale to the public at 10 a.m. April 14 on ticketmaster.com.
