Australian pop-punk quartet 5 Seconds of Summer turned the 2015 American Music Awards into a rock club with their frenetic performance of “Hey Everybody!” The single appears on their latest album, Sounds Good Feel Good.
Bathed in black and red, the young group gave an energetic rendition of the Duran Duran-inspired second single off their latest album. The performance proved just as fun as the video, which featured the band acting out all their wealthiest fantasies.
The group’s sophomore LP, Sounds Good Feels Good, hit Number One after its October release. Produced by John Feldmann, the new album had the 21-and-under band working with many of their early millennium pop-punk heroes, including members of Good Charlotte, Sum-41 and All Time Low. “It’s really cool to see that [these artists] are supportive of a new wave of rock music,” guitarist Michael Clifford told Rolling Stone back in August.
In September, the band wrapped up their first headlining tour ever, which was in support of their self-titled 2014 debut. In February, the band will kick off a world tour in support of Sounds Good Feel Good, which will launch in Japan in February. Along the way, 5SOS will play two nights at London’s O2 Arena and a night at Madison Square Garden.
