I was given the amazing opportunity to see 5 Seconds of Summer in concert at the iHeartRadio Theater in NYC on July 22 — and let me tell you, it was one of the best nights of my life! If you’re still not convinced, here are five reasons why 5SOS is the band you need to be listening to this summer.

5 Seconds of Summer rocked the iHeartRadio stage in front of an intimate crowd of only 200 people and I was lucky enough to be one of them! Myself, along with mostly screaming teenage girls, a few moms (and even fewer dads!) were treated to an energetic show. Read on for more 5SOS!

5SOS: Meet The Not So Typical Boy Band

5 Seconds of Summer is an Australian boy band that consists of Luke Hemmings, 18, Michael Clifford, 18, Calum Hood, 18, and Ashton Irwin, 20.

I know what you’re thinking, if they’re the opening act for One Direction’s world tour, 5 Seconds of Summer must be your average boy band.

Well, yes, they are boys that are in a band, but the four-man band isn’t your typical boy band. In fact, the four-man act all play their own instruments and write their own songs! Impressive.

5SOS: Bringing Pop-Punk Back

If you’ve listened to the radio at all recently you’ve probably heard 5 Seconds of Summer’s hit song “She Looks So Perfect.” The song is no doubt one of the biggest jams of the summer.

5 Seconds of Summer have the whole punk and grunge look down to a science. For example, when they took the stage at the iHeartRadio Theater, Michael was sporting greenish-blonde spiky hair. While all the boys were dressed casually in baggy t-shirts or cutoffs and tight jeans. Even their music has punk influences with plenty of edgy guitar riffs, yet it’s still pop enough to be played on the radio.

Like I said, not your average boy band!

5SOS: Just Released Their Debut Album July 22

5 Seconds of Summer’s self-titled debut album was released in the U.S. on July 22 and it has one hit after another!

“With ‘5 Seconds of Summer,’ the group’s self-titled debut album, 5SOS also declares itself one of pop’s most promising new artists,” says Billboard.

Fans who love “She Looks So Perfect” will love other hits such as “Don’t Stop” and “Good Girls” — all of which they played at their iHeartRadio concert!

5SOS: Boys Announced Their First Headlining World Tour

5 Seconds of Summer recently announced they will be headlining their first world tour, Rock Out With Your Socks Out. They will hit the road May 2015 and dates have already been announced in the U.K., Europe, Australia, and New Zealand.

Although they haven’t announced anything yet, I’m staying optimistic 5SOS will tour America. After all, they do have a song called “Mrs. All American” — that has to count for something, right?!

5SOS: All Four Band Members All Single

It’s your lucky day, ladies! Luke, Calum, Michael, and Ashton are reportedly all single. However, we have a feeling they won’t have trouble finding love when they’re ready, considering they have millions of adoring fans lining up to date them!
