5 Seconds Of Summer (5SOS) have shared their new video for ‘Teeth (Live From The Vault)’. This new version of the song is out now on Interscope Records and you can check the video out below.
The original studio version of ‘Teeth’ was initially released in August 2019. One of the band’s most explosive tracks to date, it ventures deeper into the dark sonic territory that 5SOS explored on their summer hit, ‘Easier’. ‘Teeth’ features the legendary Tom Morello soloing on guitar throughout the track.
The official video for ‘Teeth’ was helmed by French director Thibaut Duverneix (Elton John, Tierra Whack). In the clip, 5SOS become subjects in a consciousness-altering experiment that triggers harrowing hallucinations.
“’Teeth’ came about after a month or two long blur of writing and pushing ourselves to go a step further than Youngblood,” vocalist Luke Hemmings said on the single’s initial release. “It was a tumultuous time in my life and the lyrics in the song definitely reflect that. It speaks lyrically about a trying time in my current relationship. Musically it’s another step forward from ‘Easier’ and really embraces industrial sounds and rhythms.
“Collaborating with Ryan Tedder was incredible as was Andrew Watt, Ali Tamposi & Lou Bell. ‘Teeth’ captures the soul of 5 Seconds of Summer and I truly believe it is a unique song to us as a band and doesn’t sound like anything out at the moment. It’s my favourite song we’ve released ever and I can’t wait for people to hear it.”
5SOS are the only band (not vocal group) in chart history to see its first three full-length studio albums enter the Billboard 200 at No. 1. Across their catalogue, 5SOS have sold more than eight million equivalent album units and sold over two million concert tickets worldwide, while cumulative streams of their songs now surpass seven billion.
5SOS are currently touring North America. Visit the band’s official website for further information about all the dates on their current itinerary.
