Aussie pop-rock outfit 5 Seconds of Summer have announced their fourth studio album Calm, which is set to arrive on 27 March.
Ahead of the album’s release, the band released a new single ‘No Shame’, along with an accompanying lyric video. Those who pre-order Calm will receive a brand-new song ‘No Shame’ in addition to the previously released singles, ‘Easier’ and ‘Teeth’.
The new album will be available in a number of deluxe formats including a Target exclusive that will include an exclusive cover, poster and additional tracks: vault versions (reworked renditions of studio tracks for live performances) of previous singles ‘Easier’ and ‘Teeth’ and ‘No Shame’.
To coincide with the album’s release, the band hit the road with the North American leg of their No Shame 2020 Tour. The tour will kick off with a trio of dates in Mexico, followed by the first US show on 19 August at Fillmore Auditorium in Denver, CO. The headline run includes concerts at Boston’s Rockland Trust Bank Pavilion (2 September) and FivePoint Amphitheatre in Irvine, CA (23 September). Tickets will go on sale to the general public this Friday, 7 February.
After revealing details of the new album, 5SOS lead vocalist Luke Hemmings shared his excitement for the new record:
“For a band to make it to four albums is no small feat in itself but to be reinventing and constantly pushing our songwriting and to come out with music that we’ve never been more proud of makes me so happy to be in 5 Seconds of Summer. Calm speaks on a journey through a young man’s life, for better or for worse. We are all human and all make mistakes, sometimes we hurt the ones we love and inevitably, ourselves in the process. Calm leaves the band in a much happier, unified and calm state of mind to continue making albums for years to come.”
The band’s first single from Calm, ‘Easier’, landed a spot on Billboard’s list of the 100 Best Songs of 2019, then enlisted Rage Against the Machine’s Tom Morello to play guitar on their ominous industrial rock single ‘Easier’.
With all three of their first full-length studio albums to hit No.1 on the Billboard 200, 5 Seconds Of Summer ready for more chart domination in the future with their new record.
